Taking over the space where the punk rock club CBGB used to be can’t be easy, but it has already been five great years since the John Varvatos Bowery boutique opened, and it seems to be swinging over there.
Last Wednesday the boutique celebrated the five years it has been since April 2008 when Varvatos took over the legendary space at 315 Bowery.
On hand and welcomed by the designer Varvatos was blues musician Gary Clark, Jr. and the soul-rock band Vintage Trouble. All were dressed in perfectly cut John Varvatos suits. The store has often hosted live shows in commemoration and celebration of the history and heritage of the site.
