Starbucks seeks liquor license for Lake Grove shop

New 'Evenings' menu will include upscale food, beer and wine after 4 p.m.

COURTESY OF STARBUCKS CORP. - Coffee House Holdings, a subsidiary of Seattle's Starbucks Corp., is seeking liquor licenses for five more Portland-area shops that could be added to the Starbucks Evening program, where beer and wine are served.Starbucks has applied for a liquor license for its coffee shop on Boones Ferry Road in Lake Grove, part of an ongoing expansion of its "Evenings" menu throughout the Portland area.

Coffee House Holdings Inc., a subsidiary of Seattle’s Starbucks Corp., applied this month for Oregon liquor licenses at coffee shops in Hillsboro, Cornelius, St. Helens and Lake Oswego. They join two stores in Portland and one in Happy Valley that were added in late March to the list of the company’s Starbucks Evenings shops, where beer and wine are added to the menu after 4 p.m.

Starbucks Corp. has about 21,000 stores in 66 countries. The coffee giant launched its Starbucks Evenings program last year at shops on Northwest Couch Street and Southwest 11th Avenue in Portland, and on Northwest Bethany Boulevard in Washington County.

All of the shops have OLCC licenses and offer beer, wine and special menus after 4 p.m., according to a Starbucks’ spokeswoman. The stores are among nearly three dozen across the country that serve beer and wine during the evenings.

Shops with the Starbucks Evenings program offer casual dining menus with dishes like bacon-wrapped dates with balsamic glaze, truffle mac & cheese, artichoke & goat cheese flatbread and grilled vegetable plate with lemon aioli sauce. There also are desserts with espresso and truffles.

The soon-to-be-converted Lake Oswego store is located at 15645 S.W. Boones Ferry Road.
