The first of a WHOPPING EIGHT STARBUCKS in the Avenues Mall. I think this is why the word redonkulous was invented.

This very old store, maybe 10 years, is a doppi, a kiosk design I have not seen in many years.

Avenues Phase III, Kuwait City, Kuwait

As of this visit, this is the only Reserve store in Kuwait, and both the exterior and interior designs are spectacular. You would think that with eight, soon to be nine, stores in the same mall, this new one would not need more space, yet it does have a second floor, and a rather spacious one at that.

Two story, but, alas, the second floor does not offer a view of the water. :-(

Drive-thru. Not that common outside America and Canada, but growing in popularity. Kuwait has around 10. Also, to get to the restroom you have to go through a pair of swinging doors, something I've not seen at any of the other 11,200 stores I've visited around the world.

Almost right on the water, which provides some much-needed cool air if you choose to sit on the patio.

Recently renovated, with a cool mural about the coffee process, as well as a smartly-decorated wall of shelves in the back.

This store sits in the Scientific Centre, a tourist attraction that includes an aquarium. From the patio in front of the store, you can see an old wooden ship, a historical artifact that, coincidentally enough, is depicted one of the Starbucks Kuwait mugs.

Of the first six stores I saw in Kuwait, this one had the prettiest facade.
