Did the Downtown Hoboken Starbucks Close? Here’s the Tea

Written by:

As much as we support small and shop local, it seems that for many residents, there’s something about a cup of Starbucks from time to time that keeps them as regulars. Some of our readers have been reaching out asking about the downtown Hoboken Starbucks at 51 Newark Street, which has been closed for the last few weeks. They’ve been wondering — is it closed for good? COVID-19 shutdown? Renovations? What’s going on? Well, we did some preliminary digging and found out what’s been going on at the downtown Starbucks location — or the tea{vana}, if you will.

For several weeks, the windows revealed a blank space, with the normally bustling area of the Newark Street Starbucks closed for business.

We asked an upstairs neighbor of Starbucks if they had heard any word on the street, as well as the landlords of the building. While no announcement or signage had been shared on the outside of the Starbucks, the landlord shared that Starbucks was only temporarily closed for renovations.

So on top of this info, this sign appeared this week:

It appears, after all that, that the downtown Starbucks is just closed temporarily — and as of now, unfortunately, no reopening date to be found. Thankfully, there are some local coffee shops on this list found here that we love, and that you can enjoy in the meantime.

If you’re looking for a coffee spot in the area, here are a few:

The Roost — located at 55 1st Street — and includes a men’s shop.

Joboken — located at 23 Hudson Street — and is a perfect spot to grab a coffee + snack before you jump on the PATH.

Hidden Grounds — located at 79 Hudson Street — with another location in Jersey City {as well as on 7th in Hoboken}.

Bean Vault Coffee — located at 1 Newark Street — owned by a local police officer who also owns Hudson Coffee uptown.

There are also two more new spots— one that recently opened — Gregory’s Coffee, and one that is opening soon — Coffee + Tea Leaf at the corner of Hudson + Newark.
