About

We're opening a bakery. Not just any old bakery. A bakery where you can grab a croissant and a coffee on the way to work of course,  but also a bakery that invites you in to stay awhile. 

the Partybus market table at the Hester Street Fair this summer

At Partybus Bakeshop you can linger for hours in our bench nook over a good book and a decadent pistachio croissant. You can share a personal pizza with your best friend or eat the whole thing yourself (no judgement). You can stock up on baguettes for that wine and cheese party you're having this weekend. You can fill a box with exquisite pastries, rye brownies, and monster cookies to share at the office. You can snack on a ham and cheese focaccia while beating your mates at your favorite board game. Most importantly, you can be sure that once you step through our door you'll be treated like family. 

Just like our service (which will be second to none) our products will be made of the finest ingredients available. Produce will come from the NYC Greenmarkets and farms with-in the tri-state area. Flour, our star ingredient, will be ordered in small batches  from local stone mills guaranteeing the highest quality grain. Most importantly, our breads will be naturally leavened through a slow cold fermentation process so that when you eat it you will feel good!

We want to be your home away from home, your comfort food, your howdy neighbor! 

Our menu will include a full selection of breads, pastries, sandwiches, pies, and pizzas. Our monster cookies will be available daily and we will feature coffee from City League Coffee Roasters, our new friends from the Hester Street Fair. We'll also have a full curriculum of baking classes available for true beginners and home-baker-prodigies alike.

Help us finish our build out so we can get you in the door! With a little bit of luck and love from y'all we'll be opening by November, 2019 in the Lower East Side, New York.

Risks and challenges

Starting a business has many challenges. One of our biggest hurdles has been finding the right space. After searching for almost a year we scooped up a stellar spot on Essex street in Manhattan but what the space has in curb appeal it lacks in guts. Our new home needs a major interior face lift, some structural improvements and some plumbing work. Construction in NYC costs a pretty penny which is why we're asking for your help to bring our bakery into tip top shape.

We are sincerely grateful for any contribution you can give towards making this dream become a reality. We are itching to finish the build-out and get back to what we do best - baking so we can feed all of you wonderful people. We can't wait to meet you!

Quick shout out to Kimberly Lolk [www.kimlolk.com] for creating our amazing wallpaper (seen in our photo banner above) and my awesome brother David Russo [www.logandhatchet.com] for designing all the logo/branding material for Partybus Bakeshop <3
