For those looking for some unique libations in-between shopping, The Spare Room's lounge will be serving signature, hand-crafted cocktails. Stylish foodies can also enjoy bites by Valerie Confections, cold-pressed juice by Moon Juice, kombucha by Health Ade, and Alejandra's handmade blue corn quesadillas.
