Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Perfect Saturday, a weekly Racked feature in which we outline the best places to shop and spend the afternoon in a particular neighborhood, starting with brunch and ending—who knows!

The Lower East Side has been cool for so long now that it's easy to forget to pay it a visit—at least during the daytime. While the 'hood is chock full of well-known bars, it's also got plenty on tap in dining and shopping, its gritty rock and roll side complemented with a burgeoning fashion scene, strong vintage presence, and cluster of buzzed-about restaurants.

After the jump, start with brunch at Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya, hit up six great nearby boutiques, and end the day at a relaxing spa for a thermal salt soak.
