Don Me Now adds champagne bar to new location in Channel district

SOUTH TAMPA—Don Me Now, a women's contemporary boutique in business for nearly five years in Hyde Park Village, is moving into the Channel District and opening Tampa's first champagne bar, Bubbly Barchique within the space.

They are putting the final touches to the new store located at 1211 E Kennedy Blvd. and plan to open in the coming weeks.

Don Me Now started just as a styling and wardrobe for clients, and then decided to open a store to have one place to cohesively do both.

It also does closet makeovers to assess what a client currently wears and what they don't wear, and in-home personal styling to focus on the style of the client on an ongoing basis.

It prides itself on making the shopping experience fun and easy with their expertise on helping women find their unique style and what works well for them whether it's the right color, or what works well for their body type.

"We want to help you find the thing that you're going to actually wear," co-owner Danielle Evans said.

"Too often people have that instinct of what's trending right now or what's on sale and that's easy to purchase, you put it in the closet and never wear. We don't let you buy something that will just sit in your closet and you'll never put it on again."

The champagne bar certainly will help create an experience for its shoppers.

After serving complimentary champagne at their Hyde Park location where they couldn't sell it, they quickly learned that champagne and fashion works, and hope to be known now for their champagne bar as well as their clothing.

The boutique features everyday contemporary women's wear such as jeans, blouses, and more and a number of different brands such as Blank NYC and Do + Be. Prices range from $40 to $100 and they operate Monday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with separate hours to come for the bar.
