Coming Soon: Three Monkeys Eyewear at 35 Spring Street

Posted on: September 23rd, 2010 at 6:32 am by

In due course, two establishments within a half-mile radius will lay claim to the Three Monkeys moniker.  Except both are complete polar opposites.  First, there’s The Three Monkeys at 99 Rivington Street, which serves up Middle Eastern fare from the storefront captured on the Beastie Boys record Paul’s Boutique. And coming soon to 35 Spring Street – Three Monkeys Eyewear.

The hype signage already in the front windows indicate that the funky sunglasses outpost is coming soon.  No more information, no less.

Three Monkeys Eyewear is a product of Santiago, Chile, and specializes in all the high-end brands out there (Oakley, Ray Ban, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Prada, etc.). They also feature house frames made in Italy.  This Nolita location is part of their two-pronged infiltration of the US market – a store in Manhattan and Los Angeles.

35 Spring Street itself just recovered from a three-year facelift operation.  The three-story structure, originally built in 1820, was bought by a hedge funder named Andrew Suckling back in 2007.  Aside from interior renovations, cosmetic changes included the new storefront, adding a fourth floor, and a glass balcony.
