The Amsterdam-based menswear label Scotch & Soda just (officially) celebrated the opening of its third Manhattan outpost at a party last night, and though it's located in the former home of Café Angelique, the store still retains a piece of the West Village staple, including the original facade, mosaic tile floors, whitewashed brick walls, and the cast iron column that marks the entryway.
Another surprise: There's a slightly smaller section in the back for the brand's womenswear collection, Maison Scotch, which includes flowy dresses and button-downs, supersoft tees, and leather outerwear. To celebrate, they're hosting a flower pop-up shop outside the store this Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm, where there'll be free tulips, tote bags with any purchase, Belvoir elderflower bubbly, and more giveaways.
