									Starbucks In ShangHai 星巴克,讲述上海故事
● ●○建硕博客 Jian Shuo's Blog 越来越多的外国面孔出现在我们这座城市里。他们改变了城市,也被城市改 变着。若干年前,肯德基、麦当劳、宜家、星巴克还都是极其新鲜的词语。如 今,这些地方已经成为城市的地标,成为我们聚会的地方。在上海,有星巴克 的地方,就有故事。让我们一起来聆听。——编者 Starbucks:how relaxing it is to have a cup of coffee With more and more foreign companies coming to Shanghai, the daily life changes. If you list some shops that affects the city most, I would list in the following order:McDonald's,KFC ,IKEA,Carofour,Starbucks.The most important reason it is affecting people's life is the life style and the con-cept they bring to the city. People know how fast a lunch will be and how colorful and creative the furniture can be. We all learn how large amount shopping looks like and, for the Starbucks case, how re-laxing it is to have a cup of coffee. Starbucks, Raffles City: it is very con-vinient with the location The Starbucks at the Raffles City is not a good store in the Starbucks family. It is small and crowded. However, it is very convinient with the location near the exit of Metro Line #1. It is the nearest meet-ing place for me (Jian Shuo), and easier to find. I have other locations that I choose to meet people, like Coffee Bean and Tea Leafs, but it is a little bit harder to find and only works for people familiar with the area. Starbucks ,Binjiang:it has the best view in Shanghai My favorite place to meet in the last two months in Shanghai is the Starbucks at the Pudong side of the Bund, or typi-cally refered to as Binjiang Store. It is a nice place for both people in Pudong and Puxi to meet. Typically, my meetings with IT related people are ar-ranged around 8:00 PM in this Starbucks. Everytime friends from other cities comes, no matter he is VP of QQ, or journalists from Beijing, or CEO from websites, we simply drop a SMS to the friend circle of IT in Shanghai and say: come and visit. The same time, same place, and people have formed the idea that it will be this Binjiang Starbucks, at 8:00 PM that night.For example, I spent wonderful afternoon with Dave, President of eTang there this Sunday afternoon. This Starbucks has the best view in Shanghai - not every Starbucks has wide view to the Huang Pu river. Watching big ships moving slowly along the river with old architects on the Bund is nice experi-ence. The view also inspires people's thinking a lot when we see moving ob-jects, espectially those very big one like ship, our thoughts are typically running faster. Starbucks ,xin tian di:take a seat on the second floor Xin Tian Di is the place of all kinds of Bars and western Restaurants. It is for sure that Starbucks will reserve its place there. Built in a Shanghai old style house, the Xin Tian Di Store fits into city very well.The seats are always occupied. The Tai Cang Road by the seats are considered the entrance to the great area.I would like to recommend everyone to visit this store and take a seat on the second floor. The wood stair and the decro insdie reminds people of the old times of Shanghai. Starbucks,Yu Yuan Store:with strong Chinese style Yu Yuan is the only store in Shanghai, I have to say, with strong Chinese style. The reason I followed all the Starbucks in Shanghai is, all the Starbucks stores are located in the business centers in Shang-hai. However, there are two exceptions. One is the Yuyuan Store and the other is the Qibao Store. The areas are crowded and there are no business people there.It is clear that the major customer segment for the Yu Yuan Store are foreign tourists. It is also the smallest Starbucks Store in Shanghai with only 9 seats or so. I had a hard time to find the store in the Yu Yuan area. Finally, it show up in the opposite side of the famous Jiu Qu Bridge. Yes. It is the heart of Yu Yuan Garden Area.
