Design … Framed Classic Roots Reggae Album Covers at Miss Lily’s

20131210-180754.jpg

The restroom at Miss Lily’s — a Jamaican-and-reggae-themed cafe and shop in downtown New York City — is decorated with the framed record covers of roots reggae and dub music classics from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s. Our favorite is the cover for Dr. Alimantado’s “Best Dressed Chicken in Town” record pictured above.

On the Scene … Back at Miss Lily’s NYC

20130830-125634.jpg

We’re fans of Jamaican-styled Miss Lily’s, a roots reggae record shop and Internet radio station that’s also a cafe and “juicebox” — a place that makes fresh smoothies and juices — on Houston Street, on the border of SoHo and Greenwich Village, in downtown Manhattan, NYC. The full name is Miss Lily’s & Melvin’s Juicebox and Record Shop. (Melvin makes the smoothies.) Readers of this blog may recall we’ve posted about Miss Lily’s before and published images of the interior. Here are some pix of the exterior and some of the yummy food.

At Miss Lily’s & Melvin’s Juice Box and Record Shop

We’re taking a break from this steamy hot July 4th weather this afternoon to enjoy a coconut banana smoothie and bask in the atmosphere (live radio-DJ’d dub reggae and Carib decor) of Miss Lily’s & Melvin’s Juice Box, a Jamaican-style cafe, juice bar and record shop in SoHo / Greenwich Village in New York City. One of our favorite places in NYC.
