By night, the Meatpacking District is one of New York City’s most iconic party neighborhoods. But by day, the area is a prime shopping zone. Designer stores like Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch are everywhere, as well as high-end local boutiques. Shopping in the Meatpacking District is a must for any NYC shopaholic – and although the price points aren’t exactly a bargain hunter’s dream, some stores are worth exploring. Even if you can’t afford some of these luxury goods, it doesn’t hurt to check out a little eye candy.

Founded by Kilian Hennessy, heir to the famous cognac throne, By Kilian is a fantastic shop for bespoke fragrances. With enticing scents like “A Night to Remember,” “Arabian Nights,” and “Vodka on the Rocks,” By Kilian offers a broad range of unique perfumes, candles, room sprays, and more.
Arhaus, 410 W 13th St
Arhaus is a Meatpacking District favorite when it comes to housewares and décor. Whether you’re setting up a home office, furnishing a new studio apartment, or decorating for a special dinner party, make Arhaus a definite stop on your downtown shopping excursion.
Trina Turk, 67 Gansevoort St
Escaping the NYC winter or heading to the Hamptons during the summer? Trina Turk is the ultimate place for stylish resort wear. Trina Turk’s designs are the perfect blend of trendy, classic, sexy and comfortable – not to mention, colorful prints that are a nice change from the classic black wardrobe many of us New Yorkers wear. And it doesn’t hurt that the friendly staff offers wine while shopping.
Banchet Flowers NY, 447 W 16th St
Who doesn’t love to receive a gorgeous bouquet of flowers? Picking up a bundle of stems from a street vendor or farmer’s market on the weekend is always lovely (and oh-so NYC). But for something extra special, stop into Banchet Flowers for an exquisite selection. Potted orchids and colorful floral arrangements in Baccarat vases are sure to brighten anyone’s day.
Nesh NYC, 15 Gansevoort St
Jump on board the athleisure trend by finding your new favorite workout ensemble at Nesh NYC. Nesh’s collection of yoga pants, sweaters, and cashmere goodies are a stylish and comfortable way to get around the city. And they transition perfectly between a Pilates class and brunch.
The Soil & The Sea, 75 9th Ave #2
Purists will love The Soil & The Sea. Located within Chelsea Market, this kiosk sells body products made with natural ingredients (just as its name suggests). Try the bamboo charcoal body wash, coconut sea kelp facial cleanser, or lavender chamomile facial toner for starters. After a full day of shopping in the Meatpacking District, you’ll love unwinding at home with these luxurious treats for your skin.
Efva Attling, 36 Little W 12th St
To put it bluntly, Efva Attling is a total rockstar, and this Swedish jewelry designer can occasionally be found visiting her Meatpacking District boutique. Aside from engagement rings, Efva Attling sells luxury jewelry collections with cheeky names such as “Bend Over” and “Take No Shit!” – an exclusive line that donates a portion of sales to an anti-bullying organization for children.
