A different kind of party bus is rolling into the Lower East Side this fall. One ostensibly without the drunken mess.

It’s Partybus Bake Shop, an artisanal bakery opening in the former Chinese seafood wholesaler at 31 Essex Street. Upon debut next month, expect a “rotating seasonal menu [of] classics including breads, pies, and cookies by using the best ingredients the north east has to offer.”

The Partybus Bake Shop is the brainchild of Vaucluse head baker Jacqueline Eng. What began as more of a passion project, including tables at the Hester Street Fair – has become a full-time endeavor with this Essex Street brick-and-mortar.

Eng also launched a $10,000 Kickstarter campaign this week to “help us over the last hurdle” before debut in October.

Eng’s entry is the second bakeshop to open in the area this last six months, joining Michaeli Bakery on Division Street.
