The Crispy Gentleman had the pleasure to visit and meet the crew over at Blind Barber in Lower East Side, NYC, when they first started their joint. With much success, three years later, Blind Barber has now opened a spot in LA. Back in the day, the barbershop wasn’t only a place to get a fresh cut and shave, it used to be the local hangout spot for the community where everyone came together to bond, socialize, and exchange ideas. With this concept in mind, Blind Barber brings this togetherness back in style. Along with cuts and shaves, the back room of the barber shop has a full bar and cocktail parlor so you can get your buzz on as you get your groom on. Blind Barber has expanded into all areas that make up a contemporary urban, modern-day gentleman.
A place that needs no introduction. Part bar, part barbershop, Blind Barber is the brand that is cool without exclusion. Not once do they make you feel as though you do not belong.
My friends in Nashville had a saying for when things go well with others: “The hang is real.” And at Blind Barber the hang is always real. They can tell you the best place to grab a coffee, where to pick up a pizza, or what new music to check out, all while you are given a fantastic cut and enjoying an ice cold beer.

“This place is totally new to the neighborhood, having just opened in the last few weeks. I love it because it not only has great Blue Bottle coffee, but it doubles as a bar. Sometimes you want a soy latte and sometimes you want a beer, problem solved!”
