Heads up, Starbucks lovers! There's a new Insta-worthy Starbucks outlet that's opening in Seoul Wave Art Center in Seoul, Korea.

What makes this outlet particularly exciting is that it's situated in the middle of a river and looks like it's floating on water. 🌊

The space was previously occupied by COFFEEWAVE, Seoul Wave Art Center's own cafe, which just closed in June this year. Taking its place is a new Starbucks branch that's due to open in August or September 2020.

The new 300 square metre branch, Starbucks Wave (스타벅스웨이브점) is located on the 1st floor of Seoul Wave Art Center, a complex cultural space in Han River Park. The building is built in the middle of Han River and the full floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide a stunning 360-view of the waters.

It's an 18-minute walk away from Subway Line 2 Canyon Station (잠원) Exit 4. That sounds like a long walk but the amazing view might be worth the mini workout!
