A Note on visiting
Plan your visit to the Roastery at 1124 Pike Street. The Roastery can get very busy. The weekends are almost always more crowded than weekdays. The rush starts late morning, and the space can stay busy until close. Weekdays, early mornings, is the quietest time. The Roastery is open 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM, 7 days a week. (Since the beginning of the Roastery, the hours were 6:30 AM to 11:00 PM. Starting November 7, 2016, the Roastery implemented new hours, opening later at 7:00 AM).
The phone number for the Roastery is 206 624 0173.
You'll find that parking is a challenge. The Downtown, First Hill, and Capitol Hill neighborhoods are dense places with little parking. The Roastery is quintessentially in an urban place where many visitors arrive on foot, by bus, by light rail, or any combination of these. If you can, come on foot.
There is a public parking garage with an entrance on Minor Avenue, adjacent to the Roastery to the north: This is the Pike & Minor Garage. Please be aware that the Pike & Minor Garage is temporarily CLOSED. We will update you when have more information.
If arriving by local King County bus, routes number 10, 47, and 43 all stop extremely close by, with a stop along Pike Street from the downtown core.
The experience bar
While at the Roastery, be sure to visit the Experience Bar, which is at the far west end of the store. It's a place to sit down, order siphon-brewed beverages, unique coffees or drinks not available at the main ordering area of the store, and slowly experience your coffee.
renting the roastery space
The small library room adjacent to the Experience Bar (holds about 15 to 20 people) may be rented. You may also rent the lower half of the Roastery, which is the area with the larger coffee roasting operations and the Experience Bar. The lower half of the Roastery holds about 100 people.
all are welcome
Anyone can visit! There is no special tour sign up of the space, so plan on walking through it, taking everything in. Take lots of photos!
Do you currently work for Starbucks? It's important for you to know that you cannot receive your weekly coffee markout at the Roastery, unless you are actually a Roastery partner.
Up until very recently, partners only received a partner discount on food and beverage purchases at the Roastery, not other retail. This just changed within the month of October 2016. Be prepared to have your partner ID card in order to receive a partner discount for any purchase at the Roastery.
A TIP Regarding alcohol & Food
There are no alcoholic beverages offered in the Roastery, which is operated by Starbucks.
Previously, the Tom Douglas restaurant, Serious Pie operated within the Roastery space and offered alcoholic beverages. As of May 2, 2017, Serious Pie has left the Roastery.
The restaurant space is currently under reconstruction and development.
Stay tuned! Later in 2017, we will be offering Princi, an artesian Italian bakery!
