Over at 85 Stanton Street, two years of vacancy just concluded. A new espresso bar is now on the grounds.

As previously reported, this spot is the maiden Manhattan location for the Brooklyn-based Velvette Brew. (We’re told that the Prospect Park coffee shop closed in favor of the Lower East Side.)

The former boutique is now stocked with tables and chairs, including a sip counter near the entrance.

You’ll recall that the A. Turen boutique moved from 85 Stanton Street in January 2018, and settled around the corner. Its sidecar space had been occupied by RISE Coffee and likewise left the premises to consolidate at the Dudley’s kiosk further south on Orchard.
