Katz’s Deli Opening ‘The Space’ Pop-Up Gallery and Apparel Shop

Posted on: October 4th, 2013 at 6:04 am by


Katz’s Deli is taking control of the uber-short-lived Tim Horton’s/Cold Stone combo next door at 203 East Houston, owner Jake Dell tells us. Dubbed simply The Space, the recently-renovated retail unit will act as both a pop-up gallery and apparel shop for the 125-year-old eatery. Each month, a new cast of commissioned artists will decorate the store with “deli-inspired” artwork.

Fifth-generation owner Dell stated:

Every month we will introduce a new rotation of talented artists and designers that will fill the location with deli-inspired pieces. In this way, The Space will serve as a tribute not just to the restaurant’s past and present connection to the neighborhood, but to the people who continue to live, work, and create art in all its forms right here on the Lower East Side

Official launch party for The Space at Katz’s Deli is set for October 22, 7pm – 10pm.

Katz’s Deli previously used 203 East Houston in March 2012 for a private wedding reception that Ivanka Trump attended.
