We were very proud to host the Bande des Quatres Collection II presentation on Friday, January 20th on the 2nd Floor Terrace. Bande des Quatres is a collaboration between designer Erin Wahed and her mom, Janis Kerman (a well-known Canadian jeweler), who hand-crafts each piece to order. The collection is available to purchase on the newly revamped website – check it out here.
Following the success of the presentation, we had an after-party hosted by Erin and the Bowery’s Laura Cooper Brown with a line up including DJs Class Actress, Austin Peters and Ethan Silverman of Terrible Records, and a live performance by BELL. A great night was had by all!

UNIS is one of our favorites Mens’ stores in the city. Conveniently located on Elizabeth Street in Nolita (a 10 minute walk from the hotel), this is one of our go-tos for classic, elegantly designed Mens’ casual-wear, including beautifully cut shirts and pants. Designer Eunice Lee’s commitment to quality is apparent in every stitch and all her garments are made either locally in NYC or in LA. The store also smells fantastic – you can purchase the Le Labo candles they burn just across the street!

It’s the 5th of November! And over in England they are celebrating Guy Fawkes Night. Laura Cooper Brown has picked out of a couple of her favorite ways to remind herself of home. While she purchases her Marmite from Myers of Keswick and sups on Bangers ‘n Mash at Tea & Sympathy in the West Village, over on the East side she visits tailor extraordinaire, Alex Wilcox, at Lord Willy’s and knows where to go for New York’s finest curry… Brick Lane.
When you think of an image of Downtown New York, Bond Street with its cobbles and cafes would certainly come to mind. Running from Bowery to Broadway, it is home to a few of our go-tos including Il Buco, The Smile, Billy Reid, Hung Ry and more! Join Laura Cooper Brown for a walk down one of our favorite strips in the city…
Our friends Heather and Christopher Tierney, the brother/sister team of Apotheke fame, have downwardly expanded their empire. Their new restaurant/bar, Pulqueria, is located on Doyers Street in Chinatown just next to and underneath Apotheke. With a soft opening during Fashion Week, which included hosting the Last Magazine party, Pulqueria has created quite a stir amongst restaurant-goers and party-goers alike. The menu includes Mexico City-inspired Pulque, Tequila and Mezcal cocktails and authentic Tapas. Take a look at our video where Laura Cooper Brown samples an Inebriated Monkey, Pumpkin Seed Dip and more…
