Since its grand open­ing a year ago, Domain North­side, with its mix of up­scale sa­lons and spe­cialty bou­tiques, has blos­somed into a des­ti­na­tion for Austin’s lust-haves. From the per­fect leather jacket via breezy SoCal brand Joie to a high-tech Pelo­ton bike for an at-home spin class, Domain North­side has at­tracted ex­clu­sive na­tional brands to the state. Nish de Gruiter, vice pres­i­dent of trendy suit bou­tique Suit­sup­ply, ex­plains: “Austin had been on our wish list for a long time. Domain North­side is the right part­ner, since we share the same dy­nam­ics.” In ad­di­tion to dis­cern­ing na­tional brands open­ing their first lo­ca­tion in Texas (like Will Leather Goods, a fam­ily-owned ar­ti­san com­pany, and Guide­boat, care­fully crafted boats and ap­parel from the founder of Restora­tion Hard­ware), lo­cal de­sign­ers are also well-rep­re­sented, in­clud­ing phil­an­thropic shop Raven + Lily and eco-friendly makeup bou­tique W3LL Peo­ple. The re­sult is a uniquely Austin at­mos­phere. “Domain North­side sup­ports their re­tail­ers by fos­ter­ing a go-to, wel­com­ing des­ti­na­tion shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence,” notes Rene Pet­tyjohn, gen­eral man­ager of modern home fur­nish­ings store Mitchell Gold + Bob Wil­liams. With high-end eater­ies, gor­geous green spaces and ex­tra sur­prises like Rhys, a twin­kling sculp­ture from Fly­ing Car­pet Cre­ative, Domain North­side has truly cre­ated a sec­ond city cen­ter up north, with all the mak­ings of a full-day ex­cur­sion.
