CBGB closed its doors at 315 Bowery in NYC a little over two years ago. CBGB was not only known for its legendary shows, but for its dirtiness and griminess. However this spring, 315 will get a spit and polish when it turns into a John Varvatos boutique, a designer of high-fashion menswear designer.
It is kind of funny that this location will go from fungus to $300 shirts. I guess it is mildly appropriate because past Varvatos spokesmen have included - Slash, Ryan Adams, Chris Cornell, Iggy Pop and currently Alice Cooper. We'll see how they tie in the new store with the history and the clientele will definitely be different. From the Spring 2008 S/S:
