The Starbucks Salon is a nomadic temporary coffeehouse combined with a gallery and performance venue. The Manhattan edition featured two daily performances by musicians and artists such as Aimee Mann, Run DMC, Jim Carroll, House of Diehl and Lansing Dreiden.
While the first floor was conceived as an artistic coffee shop and intimate performance space, with murals by Romon Kimin Yang (a.k.a. Rostarr), the second floor exhibited a slanted gallery installation that aimed to represent the new perspective on contemporary culture brought by increasing corporate patronage.
