Space Ninety8, New York

The perfect destination for the Williamsburg ‘hipster’

The perfect destination for the Williamsburg ‘hipster’

Rupert Bentley-Smith

Amongst the modish cafes, bars and industrial space of Williamsburg, New York, lives Space Ninety 8, the five story Urban Outfitters concept store. Big and spacious, the multi-level space is located in a renovated warehouse. It has an industrial look, complete with exposed ceilings and brick wall.
This Brooklyn store has a ‘market place’ showcasing 40 local designers as well as a collection of rotating pop-ups, the usual womenswear, menswear, and homeware and is also home to ‘The Gorbals’, an Ilan Hall restaurant and bar as well as a recharge area to relax in. Self proclaimed as ‘a constantly evolving platform for art, music, food, and designers’ Space Ninety 8 is the perfect destination for the Williamsburg ‘hipster’.
It will be fascinating to see how they progress over the next few years as it was full of people (aforementioned hipsters), but not convinced they were all making purchases. Maje and Sandro have moved into an altogether newer, and shinier building further down the street, an interesting move for them, or perhaps an illustration of the direction Williamsburg is now heading.
