Another day, another Drybar lease. Last month, the blowout salon announced it would be opening locations on East 34th Street and East 76th Street. Then, late last week, Tribeca Citizen spotted signage for another spot on Leonard Street. Next up? The Upper West Side.
Crain's New York Business reports that Drybar is expected to sign a lease for a spot at 341 Amsterdam Avenue. West Side Rag adds that the location was formerly (and briefly) a Burrata Bakery and Pizza Bar, though since its departure, the storefront has been vacant for over a year. If you're not keeping track, the UWS salon will be the city's sixth Drybar—and the fourth to be announced within the span of a month.
