Specialty provisions shop Pine & Polk has debuted in the Hudson Square section of Manhattan—as has PS, a clandestine cocktail bar tucked behind a hidden door. The women-led concept was conceived to reflect a synthesis of East and West Coast sensibilities, as reflected through a cohesive design envisioned by architect Glen Coben of Glen & Company and designer Kristina LoMonaco.
“The goal was to make the two spaces feel different but connected,” says co-owner Lindsay Weiss. “The intention was for Pine & Polk to feel current, but also warm and welcoming. Many of the restaurants and bars in the area have been around for quite some time and are more rustic or ‘worn in.’ We wanted the bar to feel like you’re in a home—or a cozy living room of a friend who’s hosting a dinner party.”
The bright and airy store embraces soft, more neutral finishes and natural materials that allow the goods on display to pop. Hanging greenery contextualizes the space’s high ceilings and establishes a handsome contrast to light wood grains and stone and white quartz elements.
PS contrasts the retail area with a moody vibe expressed via a palette of dark blue and jewel tones. Walnut wood and concrete floors evoke a more distinctive New York flair across the secret bar, while white and gold plaster walls infuse the space with a subtle brightness. A handmade dipped yarn art piece even nods to the Golden Gate Bridge.
