Barnyard Cheese and Brix Wine Shop moving from Avenue C to Avenue B
[Reader-submitted photo on Avenue B]
Avenue B will soon be home to two familiar East Village businesses: Barnyard Cheese and Brix Wine. The two sister shops will be side by side at 168 and 170 Avenue B between 10th Street and 11th Street. (The Avenue B spaces were previously home to the bistro 26 Seats and the motorcycle apparel shop Klutch.)
Moving signs are up at the now-closed location of Barnyard Cheese Shop at 149 Avenue C between Ninth Street and 10th Street...
Brix Wine was just around the corner at 649 E. Ninth St. ...
"We are excited about the moves and the opportunity to have both stores side by side, which was always the dream but never quite attained on Avenue C, although we came close," Barnyard/Brix owner Beatriz Arremony told us via email.
Arremony said that the move will allow them to expand their offerings. Barnyard will now finally have a full kitchen and unveil a number of new items beyond their meats, cheeses and sandwiches. In addition, she said that Brix will offer small-group educational courses, including menu planning, as well as in-store tastings. (No word on an official opening date just yet — but soon.)
"We will miss our corner of 9th and C and the great community that we've been part of for the last nine years but hope to continue to do the same on the B side," she said.

I really like these shops - great sandwiches at Barnyard and interesting wine selections at Brix, both somewhat reasonably priced. I'm glad they're moving close by but will miss having two chill non-bar businesses on or near Ave C. I wish them luck in the new location.
Glad they are staying in the neighborhood.
Did 26 Seats move -- or are they shuttered?
When are the new locations opening?
EVT, Barnyard, and Brix are closing? Man, my block is going to look a lot different before too long. Kinda scared that new club is the new norm.
No official dates just yet, IzF.
She said that Barnyard will likely open first. (Friday is a possibility.) I'll update when they announce the dates.
Wine and cheese...winner
I like Barnyard and I'm sad they are leaving Ave C. The people that work there are really nice as are the ones that work at Esperanto on the corner.
Will Barnyard have seating inside or outside?
Thrilled that Barnyard will be right around the corner, love their stuff and that'll make getting dinner a lot easier on nights I don't feel like cooking. Welcome.
Good news for once!
I'm gonna miss the place on ave c, it was nice to have a picnic table outside to sit and enjoy a sandwich, from what I heard the new location will not have as much seating, turning into much more of grab n go spot.
This is great for Avenue B. We need more places like this. Right next door is Rue St. Denis, the guys there are so sweet. They sell never worn vintage clothes. It's a great place to buy a nice winter coat a sweater.boots. Recycle buy vintage and Barnyard a neighborhood place for all. Hooray!
