john varvatos in the old CBGB's is so cool. the old punk rock venue has been bought and now is
home to the john varvatos shop on bowery. the old stage is now the display for the shoes and vintage apps and posters line the walls. the clothing fits the deco.
cbgb was a music club at 315 bowery at bleecker street in manhattan. named in short for country, bluegrass and blues was founded by hilly kristal in 1973, it was originally intended to feature its names sake musical styles but instead became a forum for american punk. the ramones, nisfits, and pattie smith, the talking heads all preformed there. in later years in became the stage for murphy's law and other hand core punk music.
Before it was cool.
this small shops sells ( well, by the prices i am not sure if they are really there to sell .... the lamp i hoped to bring home was tagged at $3, 200. ) so, as you guessed, it is still there. the museum/ shop entry is an old garage door that if you don't look close you will miss is open when the guy gets there and closed when he leaves. but, its worth it to circle the block and wait to get a look at what he has. the incredible collection of vintage lamps is mind blowing and all, as you would have guessed authentic and made long before it was cool as the name suggest.
