Tribeca J. Crew Mens Shop

The long-established Tribeca tavern called Liquor Store may have closed its doors, but in its place J. Crew extended its brand with a curated selection of men's clothing and accessories by its designers and others — all while maintaining the original vibe of the bar situated in a classic 1825 townhouse. In the remodel the bar was kept in place and lighting, finishes, etc. were chosen appropriately to the space. A respectful gesture to the history of the place is paid with hints like liquor bottles scattered about. The shop also sells items that are unusual for its parent company, like old records and first-edition books. I love when this is done- taking over a space while paying homage to what it use to be. Very original! Enjoy...
