Washington’s Chinatown neighborhood is a storied historical district with a renewed vigor and vibrancy. In 2006, the area underwent a $200 million renovation that transformed it into a popular destination for shopping, eating and nightlife. The nearby Verizon Center also brings a steady flow of sport and concert enthusiasts into the neighborhood. And at the heart of all this activity, there’s a Starbucks. The store sits directly across from the Chinatown gate and the Gallery Place Metro station. And while the signage has Chinese characters as a respectful nod to its location, you can still recognize all the consistently tasteful elements that make the store a Starbucks.

Notable Store Elements

  • A customized mural and exposed brick walls create a warm interior.
  • Reclaimed wood was used for the bar, tables and condiment stations.
  • LED lighting was used in the signage to conserve energy.
