New Marc Jacobs store in Milan with accompanying bar and cafe. Designed by American firm, Stephan Jaklitsch Architects.

I really like the idea of a cafe/bar in a clothing store. I think it enhances your experience at the store, so that you are treating it as a social/relaxing place other than just a source for shopping. I've been finding it harder and harder to go to malls just cause I don't like how fast-paced and monotonous that experience has become for me. If more stores were designed to be a meeting place and casual dining experience it might allow people to slow down a bit and experience the store in a different way that goes beyond simply looking at clothes.
