El Rey on the Lower East Side


Wandering around the Lower East Side today I found the cutest coffee shop. There hasn’t been a spot in Manhattan or Brooklyn to remind me of Madrid before finding El Rey. All I could think about was how I wish I had brought my camera with me to the city today. The atmosphere is so comforting and cozy at the same time as being trendy and crisp. I also am in love with the graphic design and color of the logo. El Rey is a coffee, beer, and soda bar perched on Stanton Street in the Lower East Side, one of Manhattans trendiest neighborhoods and if you ever find yourself wandering around the area looking for someplace to get a coffee and just sit and relax, El Rey is for you.

Visiting El Rey really reminds me how much I want to open my own boutique/gallery/bar. I would love to be able to organize and design a space all of my own to share with my friends and family. You want to join, Hart Beat?
These four photos above and the first photo of the post are all via the El Rey Instagram feed. All of the pictures there are so beautiful, I can’t recommend following them enough.

The other two photos come via El Rey’s website and the Smith and Ratliff website.
