Would you go to a Starbucks Bar?

11/8/2010:

Do you think this would succeed in Hoboken?

I doubt they’d ever do this in Hoboken – but how do you think a Starbucks + Alcohol would fare in the Mile Square?

Maybe customers would actually socialize?

As you can see from the photograph below – most customers who spend some time at a Starbucks coffee house certainly do socialize. Only with themselves and in their online world (Facebook, etc.)

They’d probably not even notice if 10 customers in a row walked in completely nude, they’re so immersed in their personal “Matrix.”

However, if they looked around and perhaps struck a conversation with a complete stranger, it could be the new “hookup” hot-spot in Hoboken!

It would be like your average European cafe. I would love a place to grab a decent glass of wine and sit down.

Won’t happen in Hoboken… liquor license necessary.

Sounds like it could be fun…I’d be all over the ladies with my coffee breath 😉

They’d notice you walking into a starbucks nude. But the general vibe is more creepy than anti-social. You catch most slouchers staring at you with their headphones on, then they look away when you look at them. No smiles, no acknowledgement, just an expressionless demeanor. Sums up much of the hoboken populous actually.
