Big update regarding the forthcoming Williamsburg Urban Outfitters: The retailer's liquor license has been officially approved, which is either great or terrible news depending on how you look at it. But that's not all. New York Magazine has released a floor-by-floor breakdown of the warehouse's many offerings, which you can check out in person when it opens in early April on N. 6th Street. One important note, though—the megastore, an "indie concept shop," is actually called Space Ninety 8. Got it?
Starting from the top, the emporium's roof will feature alfresco dining and a to-be-confirmed flower market. One level down, on the third floor, there will be the brand's men's line as well as The Gorbals, a restaurant by the Los Angeles gastropub of the same name. A mezzanine bar, which confirms the aforementioned liquor-license approval, will presumably provide an outlet for boyfriends to get drunk while their girlfriends purchase kimonos and crop tops on the second floor, which will house Urban Outfitters' women's line.
The ground floor will be a market for local designers and artists such as Dusen Dusen and Cold Picnic, as well as the brand's vintage line, Urban Renewal. Last of all, in the basement, you'll find rotating custom artwork by Williamsburg painter Jason Woodside and goods from pop-up shops, kicking off with Adidas Blue.
Racked reminds us that Urban Outfitters is also planning a massive lifestyle center in Herald Square. Details on what that will comprise are vague for now—other than "features never before seen from the brand"—but we'll be sure to update you when we have more information.
