Local Men’s Boutique ‘Friend’ Announces Location at New Ace Hotel
December 17, 2015
Friend will join Stumptown Coffee Roasters and a new restaurant from James Beard-nominated chefs Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman at the upcoming Ace Hotel in 2016.

New Orleans, LA – Friend, a contemporary men’s apparel and accessories boutique located on Magazine Street in the Lower Garden District, will be expanding to the upcoming Ace Hotel in early 2016. Friend will introduce its casual menswear and unique accessories to Downtown New Orleans at a pop-up event at The Paramount at South Market on Tuesday, December 15th.

“Friend could not be happier to join Ace Hotel, which I know will be an exciting hub for culture and good times Downtown,” said Parker Hutchinson, owner of Friend. “To me, Ace Hotel has always been a welcoming hangout, with the kind of relaxed openness for which Friend has always strived. We hope to see friends old and new join us Downtown.”

Friend’s Ace Hotel location will build on the leisurely aesthetic that it has become known for, bringing in new casual menswear and lifestyle lines; a curated collection of books and records; and products, gifts, and collectibles made in partnership with local artists.
