Over the river and thru the hoods, to Brooklyn we shall go. With Dewar’s Whiskey and some of the best, fashionable and extraordinary shops in the city.
Williamsburg is booming with small businesses and this bazaar that will help you find unique items for every haute hipster, cool cat and merry maker on your gift list — a nip of Dewar’s (12 and 18 years-old) helps spur the shopping spree — it’s a cocktail shop-a-palooza with many retailers. Situated in the stylish Wythe Hotel and host to this season’s pop-up shop, the Dewar’s Holiday Shoppe is festively decorated with holly and ivy and presents that will defrost the bitterest Scrooge.
I love the t-shirts and bags by Deer Dana. Where else are you going to find a Larry David Bag or a Freddie Mercury shirt (above)? The mall? I think not! Other hot venders include: Timo Weiland, lifestyle brand Greats, local Brooklyn retailer Cadet, eyewear Classic Specs, footwear by Hickoree’s, grooming products from Pilgrim Surf + Supply and tops from The Hill-Side.
Take the L train, hail a cab or hop on a sleigh.
