The largest Starbucks in China, and the second Reserve Roastery concept ever, officially opened to the public today, and in classic 'wanghong' fashion (see also: Lady M, Hey Tea), hoards of people are lining up for hours to try and get in.

Earlier today, barricades were set up as hundreds of people were spotted in an insanely long queue that snaked outside the new Taikoo Hui location. Starbucks employees at main entrance estimated that people were waiting in line for approximately one to two hours, and visitors were let into the shop in groups every 10 minutes.
