New Neighbor: Home Espresso Bar, 250 Broome St.

Home Eespresso Bar, 250 Broome Street.

The other day we heard from Elliott Gabbay, who was hoping to get the word out about Home Espresso Bar, his dad’s new cafe, which just opened a few days ago.  We’re always happy to do our part to spread the word about new independent businesses, so I stopped by 250 Broome Street (the former La Barra space) yesterday to talk with Homayoun (Home for short) Gabbay.

New Neighbor: Old Hollywood, 250 Broome Street

We’d like to welcome a new neighbor — “Old Hollywood,” a Brooklyn-based boutique setting up a permanent outpost at 250 Broome Street (at Orchard).  They just opened this past weekend, offering a curated blend of both “old and new,” including jewelry, men’s and women’s clothing, accessories and home goods.

Owner Tiffany Porter was at the Limelight Marketplace in the Flatiron District for about a year before deciding to open the Lower East Side shop.  The store is open from 12-9 p.m. Monday – Saturday and 12 – 7 p.m. on Sundays.

DEAL FOR READERS OF THE LO-DOWN: “Old Hollywood” is offering a 10% discount on all non-sale items, good for the 250 Broome St location and good for 1 week, from now until Sunday. All you have to do is say LO-DOWN NY when you check out to receive the discount.
