Neighborhood Guide: Chelsea
Nestled between galleries, restaurants, and shops, our Chelsea store is situated at the heart of a lively neighborhood where art, fashion, and culture converge. Once known as an industrial district, it now buzzes with creative energy. A few of our favorite spots in the area:
In addition to their coffee bar in the lobby of the High Line Hotel, Intelligentsia also serves coffee out of a ’63 Citroen truck parked outside. Photo courtesy of Intelligentsia.
It’s nice to be able to pop into one of the many nearby art galleries during our lunch breaks. Some of our favorites include David Zwirner, Greene Naftali, Gladstone Gallery, and the Gagosian Gallery.

In addition to the numerous galleries, there’s often public art to be enjoyed.

For a quick bite, nearby Chelsea Market offers several great lunch options to go (as well as unbeatable prices at The Manhattan Fruit Exchange). For a proper dinner, we like the Southern-inspired comfort food and cocktails at Tipsy Parson. For dessert, we like the pastries at La Bergamote.

A neighborhood guide would not be complete without mentioning The High Line, our favorite elevated park — perfect for a sunny day stroll.
