Pop the bubbly! Just when you thought Downtown Tampa couldn't get any cooler, enter Don Me Now. Formerly located in Hyde Park Village, this trendy boutique is making its debut in the Fitzgerald building in Tampa's Channelside District and adding a champagne bar. On February 24th Don Me Now hosted its grand opening, with the bubbles popping as much as the party. Shoppers sipped and selfied their way through the store and experienced something completely new to the neighborhood.
When Don Me Now first opened five years ago, owner Danielle Evans focused on styling clients in a one-on-one personal experience. Soon after they opened, Don Me Now became one of Hyde Park Village's go-to spots for private styling parties, networking events, and girls' night out celebrations. After hosting party after party, Evans noticed that clients loved to drink champagne while shopping, and she found they spent more time inside the boutique shopping while enjoying happy hour with friends at the same time.
"We knew we were onto something and wanted to merge the shopping side of things with the popping side of things," says Evans. "Overall, we're thrilled to offer an experience you can't get anywhere else."
