Is Kate Spade Opening on the UWS?
Rumor has it that Kate Spade might be opening a shop at 205 Columbus Avenue. If it's true, the store would be taking the place of The Emerald Inn, a bar that has been in business for 70 years and is expected to close this May.
The West Side Rag reports:
A bartender told our tipster Lindsay Anne Deak this week that Kate Spade will be opening a new store in the space. It was the second time we've heard the news, after a bartender told us earlier this month that "guys in suits" had been sizing up the Emerald Inn for new tenants. We haven't heard back from the Kate Spade corporate office, but an emoloyee at one of their stores said she had heard something about an upcoming Upper West Side opening.
Kate Spade's camp has not mentioned anything about an UWS opening...yet. As of now, the only new store location that has been announced is the new Upper East Side Madison Avenue location.
