Macaron Parlour Saddles up Alongside Meow Parlour on Hester Street

Two “Parlours” now sit side-by-side on Hester Street.

The Macaron Parlour, the popular bakery founded by Simon Tung and Christina Ha, recently relocated from St. Mark’s Place to 44 Hester Street, the OG headquarters of Hood by Air. (The latter business is now located a few blocks north on Ludlow Street.) Tung and Ha decided to move the bakery from the East Village to a space right alongside their other local hit, the Meow Parlour.

The kitchen is already up and running, apparently. A few days ago, we saw a bunch of pastry chefs running crates of macarons down the block. No word just yet on the official opening, though.

Here’s the update from the Macaron Parlour Facebook page:

We are so pleased to announce that we are moving our East Village shop to the Lower East Side. Yesterday was our last day of operation in our East Village location. Our new address will be 44 Hester St., right beside our sister company Meow Parlour. We will be opening sometime next week (TBA) once we’ve settled in. In the meantime, you can find our treats in our UWS shop or the Meow Parlour Bakery.

Macaron Parlour East Village was our very first brick-and-mortar store, which we opened in October 2012. These past 4+ years have been truly amazing. What started out as just a dream has grown beyond our wildest imaginations. We will miss being in the East Village so, so much. We’ve simply outgrown the space and are looking forward to a bigger kitchen for production!
Finally, we wanted to thank our neighbors and regulars in the East Village who we have come to know and love dearly, our friends who have provided their never-ending support for us, and our customers who continue to come from near and far to try out our treats. We hope you will visit us at our new location in the LES!

We are excited to join the neighborhood and see what the future holds!
