Starbucks Evenings, the brand’s latest twist on its coffee houses, can now be found at Los Angeles International Airport’s Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). Travelers can take a break with a glass of wine or a Los Angeles–brewed craft beer before a flight. Global restaurateur HMSHost opened the new café on October 10. Starbucks Evenings is just one of more than 60 options in Westfield’s new dining and retail collection at the new TBIT, featuring local and global brands.

In an exclusive partnership, HMSHost and Starbucks opened the first airport Starbucks over 20 years ago. This new opening at Los Angeles International Airport represents the first West Coast airport–based location of Starbucks Evenings, with the previous one being at Washington Dulles International Airport.

“Starbucks Evenings is an absolutely beautiful café where travelers can sit back and take it easy inside the striking new Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles Airport,” says Joe Waller, HMSHost vice president of business development. “The Evenings design is very L.A.—casual, comfortable, and refined. It is truly a special place for travelers to spoil themselves with a glass of fine wine, indulge in a local craft brew, or sip on a cup of world-class coffee.”

The Starbucks Evenings experience is rooted in beer and wine selections that are accompanied by small plates and classic café comfort like Chipotle Hummus Dip and Goat Cheese Flatbread.

To ensure full convenience for travelers, the Tom Bradley International Terminal will also be home to another Starbucks coffee shop opening in December.
