We've seen movers hauling boxes into the space. BoweryBoogie got the scoop on the new tenant: VK Nagrani, a menswear boutique and cocktail den.
Apparently menswear designer Vivek Nagrani had been operating out of a former gallery on the Upper East Side. That space is closed now in anticipation of opening here on June 1.
Here's BB with more on the concept:
We are creating an experiential men’s boutique featuring luxury men’s clothing, custom clothing, bespoke jeans, hand made shoes and organic men’s grooming products (hangover recovery kits, post flight rejuvenation kits). Everything is made by artisan workshops in Italy, Peru and here in New York. The space is more theatre than traditional retail.
Nagrani will appear before CB2 (not CB3) for a liquor license at some point in the future.
Bowery Coffee closed after three-plus years in January 2015.
