Located at 435 N. Michigan Ave., Blue Bottle Coffee at The Shops at Tribune Tower will occupy a prime space fronting the 1.5-acre public park at Pioneer Court. Guests of the Shops at Tribune Tower cafe can expect to see new menu items and merchandise that are specific to the location. Opening for Blue Bottle Coffee is anticipated in early 2023. 

“Blue Bottle Coffee operates top-quality cafes with a loyal following and is an ideal addition to The Shops at Tribune Tower,” said Shaul Kuba, co-founder and principal, CIM Group. “We are assembling a collection of retailers that appeal to locals, area workers, and visitors and creates a new destination on the Magnificent Mile.”
