The online accessories retailer BaubleBar has tried its hand at pop-up shops in the past, but on October 17th, it will open its first full retail space at 230 Fifth Avenue. The shop, which has been dubbed "The Bar," is actually an extension of the brand's headquarters, so it will operate on an appointment-only basis. No need to worry, though—those are really easy to make.
Once you're inside, trained BaubleBar staffers will guide you through the collections, which are all displayed on shelves along the wall. As far as time allotment goes, customers have the option of booking a "Bottle Service" appointment, which means you and three guests get a full hour to try on all the baubles you want. Or, if you're planning to arrive solo and not trying to make an entire night out of it, you can sign up for the "By the Glass" appointment.
