‘Bluestone Lane’ Coffee Shop Takes Over from ‘Three Monkeys’ in Little Italy
Three Monkeys Eyewear no longer has its sight on Little Italy. The Chilean retailer closed its flagship stateside shop last month after a better-than-usual seven-year stint.
Their Spring Street digs didn’t remain dormant for long, though, as a new bougie coffee shop is now in play. The Australian-style Bluestone Lane (not to be confused with Blue Bottle) opened here within the last couple weeks. Its fourth overall outpost in the city.
Three Monkeys Eyewear debuted in late-2010, and is a product of Santiago, Chile. It specializes in all the high-end brands out there (Oakley, Ray Ban, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Prada, etc.). They also feature house frames made in Italy. This location had been part of their two-pronged infiltration of the US market – a store in Manhattan and Los Angeles.
