PlantShed debuted their floral cafes in 2018 in both Nolita and the Upper West Side. The concept introduced a unique retail experience incorporating both a traditional floral and plant shop with a wellness-focused cafe. Challenging what a conventional retail space should entail, PlantShed’s floral cafes emphasize a lifestyle centered around nature. A lush oasis filled with tropical foliage, cacti and succulents along with premium flowers sourced from all over the world creates a space where busy New Yorkers can slow down and embrace café culture in its most unique form.
With extended hours, a revamped space, new workshops, and HaND’s botanical libations, PlantShed Prince provides a unique space to socialize and gather. Perched on the eastern edge of Nolita, directly across from the New Museum, PlantShed Prince’s reimagined interiors offer a laidback, casual environment for shoppers, museum-goers, tourists and Nolita natives to find respite from the buzz of this central downtown hub. A family-owned company with a strong community focus as a part of their core values, PlantShed is thrilled to celebrate this milestone with the local downtown community – residents and visitors alike.

From this facility, PlantShed continues to service tri-state area residents and corporate clients with floral delivery, plant installation, and maintenance, as well as experiential event design. In 2018, PlantShed introduced a floral café concept at 555 Columbus Avenue on the Upper West Side and 1 Prince Street in Nolita, where florals are served up alongside coffee, pastries, and plants.
