The life of a bon vivant is more arduous than meets the eye.
He’s gotta pick up his morning espresso. He’s gotta drop by the barber for a quick cleanup and a hot shave. Suit fitting at four. Opening remarks at a gallery opening at seven.
Where’s he find the time? Helps to a know a one-stop shop that does all those things, for starters.
Like Italian clothier Domenico Vacca’s new members-only club, where you’ll enjoy top-shelf libations and eats — with no bar tab ever — on a private rooftop terrace with a House Car at the ready to take you home.
DV’s new 10-story concept store off Fifth Ave. understand what the future of retail is all about: experience. And they’re succeeding.
There are two massive floors of men’s and women’s retail, a bespoke shop, an Italian espresso bar and cafe, a barbershop, a bimonthly rotating art gallery and the ultra white-glove DV Club.
The club will allot 500 memberships in total. They tell us there are approximately 350 coveted spots left at present. You can apply online here.
The members-only private club will run you $20k per year. Members can bring up to three guests at anytime, as often as they want, and eat and drink whatever they desire. All top of the line. No. Tab. Ever. As in: leave your wallet at home.
Come a member’s birthday month, the club will also throw a soirée for the man of the hour and 20 of his closest gals and pals. No need to divvy up the bill. This shindig’s complimentary.
Additional perks include access to a 24/7 global concierge service and a House Car available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Beyond the club, there are 30 fully furnished residences designed by Vacca himself. One-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with a 30-day minimum stay for $12k per month. A stunning option for a visiting guest or client with a pseudo-long term project, the residences are complete with full butler service, access to the House Car and honorary access to the DV club and all its amenities for the duration of the stay.
Come for the suit.
Stay for the everything.
