Dose Market’s April edition sees a sensational spread of delicious food, a super-sized sample of style and an expansion upstairs, making this the biggest, baddest Dose yet.
Here’s how to double-down on all the best food and fashion in town:
Start with a satisfying free cocktail from Nellcôte, stay buzzed with Metropolis Coffee then play your angles in the Smilebooth.
Go green with fresh-pressed Peeled juices and Mana sliders and salads before a buy-in on Earth Cadet’s colorful, cute, organic cotton onesies.
Float both upstairs and down: There’s more space to stretch out and snack!
Rock out your house with The ReBuilding Exchange, Houndstooth Vintage,House of KYM and Unison before sitting down to a cup of SenTEAmental tea.
Get suited for the season at Emerging Thoughts then hit a spring sundry upswing with Mama’s Nuts, Mess Hall & Co, Dinner Party and more in the Dose Pantry upstairs.
Fill your charcuterie quota with Smoking Goose, then get flush at Dose debut Ladybug Vintage, taking your wardrobe to a whole new level.
Ante up with Lucila’s Handmade alfajores and Chocolate Twist sweets, then stack your record collection at Hydrogen Plus.
Scoop up a big-a** brick of Duke Cannon Supply Co. soap, then stash it in the coolest bag in the city (besides the Dose tote, of course), exclusively from Haberdash EDC.
Bet on a royal flush of Sway, Toki, Shades of Grey, Wanderlustings and Winifred Grace jewelry before getting pie-eyed with maple-pecan pie pops from Cheap Tart.
Shop NYC and Detroit, too, by way of Petiole NYC and Honor & Folly, respectively.
Don’t muck yet! Go all in with Antique Taco, Real Kitchen, Franks ’n’ Dawgs, Honey Butter Fried Chicken and a lip-smacking Crumb + Coop Hot Sauce mortadella sandwich. It’s a rush!
