The first Starbucks Island location intends to give Indian consumers a unique ‘Third Place’ experience while being surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Arabian Sea. This store’s cozy and welcoming atmosphere, which spans 2,500 square feet and captures the laid-back vibe of Alibaug, is an homage to its location. 

It has been created with engaging artworks that showcase the rich tapestry of marine mythology. Also, at the same time it pays homage to Starbucks nautical roots. The walls are decorated with striking images of Moby Dick, the fabled white whale, representing the pursuit of perfection.

Starbucks International and Channel Development Shares Group President Michael Conway said that he is happy to see that Indian consumers have chosen Starbucks as their go-to place for in-person interactions with our green apron partners or with family and friends. 

Starbucks is dedicated to innovation that surpasses customer expectations in India. It is one of the company’s fastest-growing countries. It believes in fostering stronger bonds among the country’s thriving coffee communities.
