This boutique, café and media studio is the brick-and-mortar incarnation of Billabout (billabout.com), an online hub for antipodean expats living in the U.S. and an e-commerce site founded by director and producer Pete Maiden to spotlight brands from Down Under. Grab a cup of Hugh Jackman’s Laughing Man coffee ($2) and chill at the vintage table before scoping the men’s and women’s clothing ($40–$450), footwear ($40–$350) and jewelry ($45–$1,170). Pieces that caught our eye included Nicole Trunfio rose-gold studs ($287), Volley men’s canvas high-tops ($45), and Mara and Mine women’s skeleton-emblazoned slip-ons ($350).
The trend for one-stop shops, which has yielded new-breed beer stores and bakery-café combinations, has shown its influence on clothing boutiques, record stores and purveyors of home decor. Discover our favorite places to drink and shop (or shop then drink), whether you’re looking for fashionable finds, a close shave or a luxurious spa treatment, followed by a coffee or cocktail.
