hey blu dot, welcome to san francisco.
last week, one of my favorite online shops opened a brick and mortar right here in san francisco’s mission district. blu dot threw a big bash to say hey there to their new neighborhood, so i popped in for a look around and a lovely little cocktail they mixed me that i highly recommend — prosecco and an aperitif i’d never had before, aperol. just like blu dot it was brightly colored and quite yummy! but i digress! i love their style — from the minimal, but really well-thought out vintage props scattered throughout the store (check that awesome hi-fi) to blu dot’s contemporary, but rather mid-century modern themed furniture, it’s all quite smashing. have a look around, and then stop by the new blu dot on valencia street if you find yourself in the neighborhood. and if not, never fear — they’re online, too.
