From its setting inside the stunningly restored 1909 Crane Plumbing building to the organic cotton and recycled fabrics used by its acclaimed house brand, Santa Barbara–based Toad & Co, Lizard Lounge (1323 NW Irving St, 503-416-7476) walks the walk when it comes to sustainability.
Opened in 2007 as Toad & Co’s first retail space, the dapper clothier has become a beloved fashion source for a number of other clothiers who share its eco-friendly ethic, including Baro waterproof outerwear, 360 Cashmere sweaters, and Citizens of Humanity, AGOLDE, and Paige denim.
But a big part of the joy in browsing here is relaxing in this high-ceilinged space, with its weathered brick walls, exposed pipes and ducts, and massive windows. It’s the kind of setting that exemplifies everything we love about the Pearl District’s storied industrial heritage. –Andrew Collins // Photo by Elijiah Luevano
