There’s a hidden espresso bar here, and it’s kind of the perfect spot to have a La Marzocco Linea Mini machine. Hoodwink is a retail garments store, carrying fresh drops from international streetwear brands like the classic Lifes’s a Beach, the A.P.C. X Carhartt collab, and the sex-positive Carne Bollente. But head through the retail boutique’s doors and you’ll find a fun little espresso bar where most shops would have a till point.
With a barista staff and coffee selection from fellow Legazpi-villager, The Curator, coffee in Hoodwink really should hit the spot. But it’s not just about the quality of the coffee execution. It’s not even about fashion. It is 100% about creating community.
How often do you have a boutique that deliberately is trying to build up an audience of regulars in their shop using coffee as the excuse to come together? What an interesting pairing!
