Rockin’ Republic

Picture this: You walk into 12th & Midtown’s latest retailer, and you’re greeted by transparent floors with water running underneath, an Xbox Kinect waiting to be dominated, live streams of social-media sites on flat-screen TVs, an organic cafe with an aquarium built into the bar and faux grass leading to a tree with lollipops hanging from its limbs. Oh, and there’s a live DJ and free mimosas on Sundays. You in?

Try dumbfounded. From the interactive shoe wall covered in iPads to the mix of high and low threads, we’ve found our next shopping (and dining, drinking and dancing!) hot spot. Charge it! @rocintheweb
