Goldie, Bazaar, and Design Bar, three darling Coconut Grove boutiques, have merged to become one concept, Golden Bar, a quaint store where you'll find both clothing and home goods. But before you'll see these changes take place in Coconut Grove on April 1st, you can visit the brand's new South Beach locations right now; Golden Bar Clothing is open at 1570 Washington Avenue, and Golden Bar Home opened last week just a few doors down, at 1566 Washington Avenue.
"Instead of having 3 different stores with different concepts We're combining Bazaar, Goldie and Design Bar into Golden Bar," says Leslie Ames, owner of the trifecta-turned-one. Apparently there's a pizza place opening at Design Bar's current Home Goods 38-approved, Commodore Plaza location, but it may just be a good thing though. Instead of rounding the block to pick up a cute sundress and some shabby chic throw pillows, you may now traverse between stores through a doorway that connects the two on Fuller Street in the Grove.
