A quirky business that has been running a DIY party service for several years will be opening a brick-and-mortar space that could be nicely positioned for a post-COVID world.
Tipsy Tie Dye will be taking over the former Sushi House spot at 155 First Street. The storefront is currently decked out with magazine cutouts that were selected by owners Katie and Kevin Tague, a brother-sister team that has taken tie dye from childhood activity to cocktail hour.
Per the company’s website, Katie comes from the fashion world and has experience as a creative director and denim designer. Kevin is an analytic chemist who specializes in garment finishing. Their parties have tended to be private gatherings in the past, but their Hoboken space will give them a much more formal venue.
The Instagram account @tipsytiedye teased some plans of how they intend to overhaul the space, which appears to be a BYOB situation. The Sushi House lacked a liquor license and a request to transfer one of Hoboken’s other licenses to the property has not yet been made.
Tipsy Tie Dye is the second new business slated for this lively stretch of First Street, as ownership behind NYC’s Jackdaw is planning a new restaurant just two blocks away.
