Why Houston’s Star Starbucks Is Shuttered

Houston’s only 24-7 Starbucks — the seemingly always-jammed one adjoined with a Jamba Juice at the corner of Post Oak and Westheimer across from the Galleria — is getting its once-in-a-decade makeover this week. The caffeine hub shut down last Friday night at 11 and Brazos Contractors’ construction superintendent expects it to be buzzing again by this Sunday night. What’ll be installed by then? Cast stone benches and entryways . . . and a fountain! Not to mention a shiny new interior. Nighthawks can still get their Ventis and Grandes at Uptown Park this week, as that branch is picking up the slack with 4-am-to-1-am hours through Thursday, and 24-hour stretches Friday and Saturday.

  • I saw the mockups of the new interior, it looks like a freackin cafeteria, full of long tables and chairs, no partitions or interior walls what so ever.

  • Seriously, no one else is going to comment on this in days? It’s an Anti-Starbucks conspiracy!
