Okay, so it’s not an actual bar where you can get alcohol but it is a coffee bar. Just as you might feel like taking a shot (or four) of vodka because you’re trapped in the house with your family, you may also want to take a shot (or four) of espresso because your little cousins are tiring you out. Most Starbucks locations will be open on the holiday.
