Manhattan – Midtown West
226 W 37th St between Seventh and Eighth Aves
A favorite of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, Southpaw is a sprawling rock & roll lair with mirrored coffee tables and retro concert posters. Specializing in vintage with a few current pieces thrown into the mix, owner Jeff Patty has the goods arranged by era and color for easy navigation. A citrus-striped Ginger Rogers--style 1930s gown rents for $225; a black draped-jersey goddess dress fetches $225; and a 1910 silver mesh belt with floral buckle rents for $65.
