Tommy Bahama to make Manhattan debut

New York -- Tommy Bahama will open its first New York City location in October.

Dubbed the Tommy Bahama “Manhattan Island,” the 8,500-sq.-ft. store will also include a bar and restaurant. It will be located in an Art Deco building on Fifth Avenue at 45th Street. 

The tropics-inspired lifestyle apparel retailer has covered the façade of its store with a barricade featuring imagery of a woman in a bathing suit holding a tropical drink on the 5th Avenue side, and a man alongside a swimming pool surrounded by palm trees and grass on 45th Street side.
