Expanding on Amsterdam-based fashion brand Scotch & Soda’s successful New York City footprint, the brand will open its newest store on Manhattan’s Upper West Side this week. Located at the corner of 80th & Columbus, the store marks the brand’s first uptown location.

In addition to the Upper West Side store opening this week, the year-old Bleecker Street store location has unveiled an expanded space with the addition of a dedicated women’s store– the first Scotch & Soda location in the U.S. to do so.

Further New York City expansion is planned with the brand anchoring the South Street Seaport revitalization development. That store is slated to open in spring 2017.

“New York City is a very dynamic retail market for Scotch & Soda,” said Ari Hoffman, U.S. CEO of Scotch & Soda. “Our expansion follows the path of proven success in opening neighborhood stores and providing an intimate experience.”

Scotch & Soda currently has 27 U.S. store locations in key markets such as Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Chicago.
