Downtown Store Open

May 11 2023

Gotham opens its doors on 3rd and Bowery.

Gotham, a new, artfully curated cannabis concept store, opened its flagship store today, May 11, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. Located in the Bowery in New York City, the two-story retail and gallery space designed by Cinema Vitae features premium cannabis, fashion and lifestyle brands, as well as art exhibitions in a beautifully designed environment.

What makes Gotham special? The store is defined by its highly-considered curation, both in cannabis products and its non-cannabis selection of fashion, fragrance, skin care, home decor, and lifestyle products. Gotham is quintessentially New York, and that influence is palpable in the space. The brand is also deeply committed to creating systemic change through the power of jobs, education and opportunity for those that were formerly incarcerated for cannabis.

Founder Joanne Wilson, a seasoned entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist with a track record of early investment in high-growth consumer brands like Food52, Parachute and Sweet Loren’s, is the visionary behind Gotham’s new concept, the next wave of cannabis retail.

“Gotham is a reflection of New York’s rich history and influence. We’re proud to be one of the pioneers reimagining what the legalized cannabis market can become in the state,” said Wilson. “As part of that growth, we have an unwavering commitment to social justice which is why STRIVE was the perfect partner for us for our flagship store.”

STRIVE is a nonprofit which provides a pathway to life-changing careers for those who face societal barriers to economic empowerment and upward mobility--including those impacted by the justice system. As a beneficiary the non-profit will receive a portion of proceeds to fund their programs.

“STRIVE New York is proud to be a beneficiary of Gotham as part of our continued work serving the Black and Brown communities that have been disproportionately harmed by systemically oppressive cannabis laws,” says Ayesha George, Executive Director STRIVE New York. “Gotham’s vision will fuel positive social change and create access for people to build economic mobility and empowerment from what once brought them barriers.”

Cannabis creates community and connection, and every step in the design of Gotham's first retail environment was carefully considered to achieve the same.

Gotham works with best-in-class brands offering New York State’s finest cannabis products, including flower, edibles, vaporizers, pre-rolls, and tinctures. Gotham features high-end product partnerships with New York based brands like Edie Parker, Flowerhouse, House of Puff, and Rose New York x David Zilber of Noma. Additionally, the brand will debut Gotham Goods, its namesake line of CBD products and accessories. Product experts will always be on-hand to help customers choose goods tailored to their needs and interests.

The 2,800 square foot open-concept venue features an exhibition space that will display seasonally rotating shows featuring New York artists. For its inaugural show, Gotham will partner with Bright Moments to present an NFT gallery. The store will also feature a permanent installation by NYC-based multimedia artist Molly Lowe.

Located at 3 East 3rd Street in New York City, Gotham will be open for in-person shopping and in-store pick-up on May 11, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., with delivery coming soon. The store will be open for limited hours from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. its first week, from May 12 through May 19. For more information, check out the brand Instagram account, @gotham.ny.
