Earlier this year when I traveled to Paris for business, I stopped in the Starbucks near the Opera House.
Wow – this was surprising, and exactly the French elegance I’d hoped to see -- even in a Starbucks.
Starbucks is known as a brand of coffee house that creates a place of connection. This amazing location definitely reflected the art and style of its neighborhood. It was renovated to evoke the classic past of the great Paris urban architecture. The woodwork, lighting fixtures, furniture, even the bar.
The nighttime buzz of everyone there added to cultural connection.
