You can find a Starbucks store at the entrance connected to COEX Mall from Samseong Station. It is the only “Starbucks R” store you can find near COEX Mall and boasts a considerable size.

“A Considerably Large Starbucks Store”

Starbucks Starfield COEX Mall R is a considerably large flagship store. While it may not appear very large from the outside, once you step inside, you’ll find a space cleverly designed in the shape of the Korean character “ㄱ.”

Due to its spacious layout, there are plenty of seats available. However, even with ample seating, it’s not easy to find vacant seats as the vicinity around COEX is always bustling with visitors.

“A Place Where Many People Continue Business Meetings”

Perhaps because it’s a Starbucks store close to COEX, it’s rare to find individuals visiting the store alone. It’s also not easy to spot people working on laptops or doing tasks, indicating that it might not be the ideal spot for individual work.

Most of the visitors are groups, likely continuing business meetings. It’s located near COEX, where various MICE events take place, making it a natural spot for business-related gatherings.

For this reason, unlike other Starbucks stores, finding a space with access to power outlets here is not straightforward. This is the only minor downside. Additionally, there are no restrooms inside the Starbucks store, and you’ll need to enter the COEX Mall building right in front to use them.

As a large Starbucks store near COEX, it’s an excellent cafe for continuing business meetings.
