Exchange Square, Central
Located within the heart of one of Hong Kong’s most vibrant trading hubs to this day, Exchange Square Starbucks was the very first Starbucks store to open in Hong Kong. Having first opened on May 2, 2000, the Exchange Square Starbucks has a special relationship with the traditional history of Starbucks. In year 2010, we had an exciting opportunity to invigorate the Starbucks Experience here. With a new beginning where it all started, the Exchange Square Starbucks has been redesigned to reflect the wealth of its roots. Created to provide a sense of tradition and the past, Exchange Square Starbucks mirrors its links with trading and the Stock Exchange, and the major role of coffee in world trade today. Inspired by this unique relationship, the contemporary store design is defined by the presence of Chinese abacuses and coffee burlaps lining the inner wall.
