La Arcada Will Welcome Hampstead Village

Locally-owned Quality British Goods Setting Up Shop in December

It’s been a good year for anglophiles in Santa Barbara. Following the opening last spring of Mac’s Fish & Chips, which brought deliciously authentic British food to downtown, a new shop purveying British goods will open in December.

Hampstead Village, the creation of owner Angela Torin, will be located in the beautiful courtyard of La Arcada at 1114 State Street. Ms. Torin describes the concept as “a unique and elegant retail store specializing in fine quality British goods.”

Kristopher Roth and Francois DeJohn of Hayes Commercial Group represented Ms. Torin in the lease of the 2,070 sf storefront. The deal follows closely on the heels of Tracy Porter’s lease of the corner space in La Arcada.

At this point, the only remaining vacant space in La Arcada is a portion of the restaurant space formerly occupied by Stateside. Angela Torin said she “wants to thank Kristopher Roth for his advice and guidance in helping her find the perfect site for this new downtown shopping experience.”
