Wink's Prince Street store, via Facebook
Girly chainlet Wink has their fourth Manhattan location lined up, and it's opening early March. The main entrance to the store is at 305 Bleecker Street, where soul food spot the Pink Tea Cup has vacated, with a second entrance at 88 Seventh Avenue South.
At 6,250 square feet spanning three floors, this outpost will carry a whole lot more than clothes. There will be a cafe on the ground floor and the upper levels will go by the moniker Bleecker Street Arts Club, with home goods and fine art on offer. The cafe will be accessible from the second entrance on Seventh Avenue South, and will be a "high-tea experience," according to Wink owner Stephen Werther. Coffee, tea, and little bites will be available, and on the upper levels, you'll be able to find "high-end, design-focused home furnishings with gallery-quality artwork. These pieces will run from a few hundred bucks up to $40,000.
