At-Slopes Pop-Up at the Bowery House Hotel
The ground level of 220 Bowery is active again, having reopened in tandem with the Bowery House hotel on the upper floors. As previously reported, gone is commercial kitchen supplier City Restaurant Equipment Corp. Instead, it’s now a pawn of Bowery 2.0 hospitality. In the last few weeks, the space has taken on an almost garage-like feel and is now haven for two symbiotic businesses. Tees and bikes.
First up is a new pop-up endeavor entitled At-Slopes, specializing in graphic tees and posters that “symbolize a shift from the horizontal & vertical.” The concept itself is the brainchild of Art Director/Designer Andrew Thompson, who works under the At-Slopes pseudonym. All items being sold carry pop culture iconography from Thompson’s upbringing in the 80s and early 90s. But patrons can also create custom-designed shirts, printed on overpriced American Apparel fabric.
At-Slopes is currently in ultra-soft open mode, but should become full throttle by early next week.
Alongside this pop-up operation, meanwhile, is a collection of Bowery Lane bicycles, which are the property of Bowery House. These custom built, single-speed bikes are part of the amenity program offered by the hotel-slash-hostel, and are available for daily rentals.
