Further staking its claim within the highest echelon of footwear/street fashion retailers is Extra Butter, the NY-based boutique that officially announces its second location in Long Island City. Located right across the East River and mere minutes from the MoMA PS1 museum, the new Extra Butter – located at 22-03 Jackson Ave. – establishes its elevated retail experience in an area renowned for its homegrown crafts, curated eateries, and bustling residential area. Within the new shop are all of what’s come to be expected from EB; the finest tier of footwear from your favorite shoe brands and a choice assortment of labels. Aside from the retail offerings, Extra Butter brings its 12-seat in-house theater with a projection screen and a full-service concession stand all contained with a crisp, minimal decor.
Outside Extra Butter LIC is a huge mural painted by none other than Stash, a much welcome sight that harkens back to the legendary 5pointz graffiti haven that has since fallen at the hands of real estate developers. The true separator is a cozy, dark, and ambiance-packed hidden speakeasy that serves top-shelf liquor, craft beer, and tasty cocktails. This dual personality offers up a near round-the-clock service to the locals while adding a much-needed retail imprint.
Extra Butter LIC is now open for business at 22-03 Jackson Ave., right off several MTA train lines. Before you visit, take a closer look at the store below.
