Entrepreneur New York Men’s Boutique Opening at 29 Kenmare

Posted on: March 22nd, 2012 at 6:45 am by

Lots of activity on Kenmare Street of late. Toby’s Public House just opened after a year under the knife, Ellabess called it quits after seven months, and Travertine is currently amidst a transformation to some upscale shit called Ken & Cook.  Throughout all this high drama, however, the stout 29 Kenmare has quietly secured a permanent tenant.

The former Yee Fay warehouse at 29 Kenmare (163 Elizabeth) hasn’t seen much action since the one-story building received a complete makeover in the summer of 2010. There was a pop-up gallery onsite last October – “Thieves Like Us” – that celebrated the release of a new typeface into the wild. Paper arrived in the windows shortly after their departure, the obvious signal of something new. Something predictable.

That something is a Japanese menswear boutique called Entrepreneur New York. We passed by yesterday afternoon during load-in and learned that the threads shop will only occupy half the footprint of the corner building, and that it plans to open sometime this weekend.  Not much else is known about the company as a website is still in the works. In the meantime, orange flags are affixed to the facade for identity purposes.
