Coffee, Music, Style : 3 Things to Love about the New Urban Outfitters

Coffee

Intelligentsia Coffee

A couple months shy of its October anniversary which signals one year to Intelligentsia’s 20 year anniversary, the coffee brand opens its second location in New York in the Lifestyle Center at Herald Square.

It spans 900 feet on the bottom floor, has its own entrances and carries a menu with a myriad of  signature direct trade beans hinged on a relationship model.

One can find the historic l Black Cat Espresso, the new Frequency Blend and in season coffees like Flecha  Roja Costa Rica carrying notes of poached pear, rose water and yellow plum.

Music

Amoeba Records

Things would be  eerily silent to say the least, if one walked into a coffee and the sound of music was, well nil.

Hailed as the largest independent record store in the world, Amoeba Music – vinyl slinger, live show sponsor and cultural destination becomes bicoastal with a residency within Urban Outfitters.

With 24 years in the industry, New Yorkers can now enjoy the full spectrum of vinyl digs, people watching and sifting through the old for something new.

Lift the dial please, the music one that is.

Style

Urban Outfitters

“Where there is coffee, there is style,” I like to say.

Such is the truth and can be found at Urban Outfitters (UO) where the two first collided in New York at its Broadway location. Now, the installation of coffee meets style expands at Herald Square.

Known for carrying its upcycled line ‘’Urban Renewal’, nostalgic lifestyle finds reinterpreted, and purveying music like Dev Hynes directed by GiaCoppola,  it is now West Coast for the East Coast – free spirits all the way.
