Skip this head across the street to Pilgrim 70 Orchard – What is this shop? I feel like I have to drink to even begin to look at the poorly made clothing. It's like 1st semester F.I.T. student decided they could make clothing.
Recommendation: cross the street to 70 Orchard. Pilgrim and James Coviello. Both great clothing shops, Pilgrim has affordable dresses made by designer Richard Ives who worked for Donna karan and Charles Nolan and James Coviello who works for Anna Sui. Both are affordable and Pilgrim also carries extensive designer vintage from their archives (they worked with French Vogue and W Magazine for years). The quality difference by crossing the street is worth it. Otherwise order a huge martini and just point and click at some strange dress that is half sewn on a mannequin that looks like it was styled in 1950's Stalinist Russia at Dressing Room....Oy!
Totally Unique Experience + Great Crowd on Weekends – The Dressing Room is on high-rotation in my list of NY destinations. I always shop there if I'm going out or to a party and want to ensure that no-one else in the room will be wearing it. They have a great roster of young designers upstairs (all very distinct and wearable, but affordable) and downstairs is a huge collection of vintage for men & women at amazing prices.
The bar is really great too - everyone is really friendly that works there and on the weekend it's a great mix of artists, designers, indie rockers and locals. The drinks are reasonably priced and they are always playing somekind of really interesting movie on the back wall, which really adds to the ambiance. It's a great place for a date or to meet up with your friends. Also, if you have friends in from out of town, this should definitely be a stop on your list.
cocktails + shopping = fun saturday night – i love this place!
Happened to pass by on a saturday night with my boyfriend only to discover one of the coolest places. They have a cool bar with cheap drinks, a projection screen showing old movies, and sometimes djs.
We had to go in and check it out. The staff is super cute and friendly. This place has such a good energy throughout - comfortable, warm and inviting. Got some drinks and worked our way through the store. In the designer co-op part of the store -- a great selection and diversity of designers -- I wanted to buy something from each designer! We worked our way through the bar to the downstairs and it's like a candy store for vintage and second-hand clothing. The best part is that everything is reasonably priced! I scored a killer cute vintage dress for $12 and my boyfriend found a really cool vintage western shirt for $20.
This place is awesome!
Love it! – I have to say I am in love with this place! My friends and I have gone to this bar/shop on multiple occasions, and every time we leave with a big smile on our face, and a new outfit (sometimes wearing said outfit!) The bar is really chill, the drinks are good and cheap and the staff is fab. The designers are great upstairs and the clothing swapped duds downstairs rock. This is one of those little gems in NYC that doesn't charge an arm and a leg for gently worn designer clothing. If you don't believe me, all I have to say is that my friend got a rocking pair of never worn before, suede Monolo Blahnik heels for -- $88!
Drink and shop! – The Dressing Room has a great mix of clothing, vintage and designer. The actual bar is really cute and has a cozy, relaxed feel to it. The people that work there are awesome, and the prices are definitely good. You can even bring your boyfriend because he can hang out and drink at the bar while you shop!
This Lower East Side spot encourages you to "just say yes" to drinking and shopping. – In Short
Some crave a hot slice of pizza after a night of boozing; for fashionable women in the Lower East Side, hip designs from up-and-coming designers do the trick. This bar/boutique functions as a designer co-op, showcasing 10 local designers in the upstairs showroom with styles ranging from funky street to simple, from elegant to punk rock chic. Past the full bar, which gets a vintage vibe from an abundance of antique mirrors and throw pillows, is the stairway leading down to an eclectic array of used and vintage clothing.
There is truly something for every price range and personality type at this boutique, from $30 hipster T-shirts to elegant $3,000 dresses.
The bar itself has a funky, comfortable vibe, but needs to beef up its beer and specialty cocktail selection to make itself stand out.
