This New Starbucks Reserve Branch in Makati Features Eye-Catching Art
They're by a local artist!
The newest Starbucks Reserve has just opened its doors at the Assembly Grounds at The Rise in North Makati. What makes this new branch worth a visit (aside from coffee, of course) are the eye-catching murals on their walls. They're by local artist JP Pining, a 27-year-old Fine Arts graduate from the University of Santo Tomas whose artistic style leans towards bold graphics and eclectic candy colors.
The first mural "depicts a barista displaying passion in his work," according to Pining himself. It also features the Makati skyline. The second mural is about friends who enjoy their time spent together and how their lives become more colorful with each sip.
"It challenges us to be different," says Starbucks Philippines store development manager Quito Lopez in a press release about the collaboration. "We want to connect with people through the work of local artists like JP, which our customers can't help but admire. We noticed how our customers enjoy their coffee drinking experience more when seeing art." The brand also plans to have more collaborations with more emerging FIlipino artists in the future, and we can't wait for more coffee shops in the Metro that also highlights art.
Starbucks Reserve is at the Assembly Grounds at The Rise, 1203 Malugay, Makati City. For more details on Starbucks' new branches and promos, follow them on Facebook.
