Rise and shine! The Empire State Building (ESB) announced today a brand-new sunrise experience in partnership with the Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building. The Starbucks Reserve® Sunrise Experience series will kick off April 1 with an early-morning arrival to take in the sunrise from the iconic 86th Floor Observatory, as well as complimentary Starbucks Reserve Empire State Building Microblend Coffee and a specially selected assortment of artisanal Princi® pastries, exclusively by Starbucks Reserve®.
“The sunrise experience at the ‘World’s Most Famous Building’ is an unforgettable bucket list experience, made all the more special with our great Starbucks Reserve partners. The sight of daybreak over New York City from the center of it all is just extraordinary,” said Anthony E. Malkin, chairman, president, and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust.
The exclusive Empire State Building Starbucks Reserve® Sunrise Experience is offered every Saturday from April 1 with extremely limited capacity. A reservation is required for the unique opportunity to begin the day on the building’s open-air 86th Floor Observatory. After sunrise time, guests have pre-opening access to the Empire State Building’s immersive museum that chronicles the building’s history from construction to its current place in pop culture.
“We are excited to partner with the Empire State Building to provide a unique experience for our customers and guests to enjoy our exquisite Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building Microblend Coffee and Princi® pastries while they take in the iconic New York skyline at sunrise,” said Dominic Alessandrini, director of the Starbucks Reserve® Empire State Building store.
The three-floor Starbucks Reserve® store at the base of the Empire State Building offers new, exclusive experiences such as hands-on coffee workshops, guided tasting flights, and an extended artisan menu of new Princi® food only available at this location. More information on the store can be found at starbucksreserve.com/en-us/locations/esb.
The Empire State Building’s world-famous Observatory Experience recently underwent a $165 million reimagination that features an interactive museum with nine galleries, brand-new host uniforms, and iconic Observatories on the 86th and 102nd Floors. The Observatory Experience was recently named #1 attraction in the U.S. – and #3 in the world – in Tripadvisor’s 2022 Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best.
