Why locals love it

The Blind Barber is an old-fashioned barber shop, but step through the sliding door in the back and there is a hip speakeasy with great music, dance space, and some of the most talented mixologists tending bar.

Why you should visit it

No other place will treat you to a shave, a cut, and a stiff drink all under the same roof. This is a great place to mingle with the crowd while enjoying some excellently crafted cocktails (do try the "Sweeney Todd"). Make sure to check out the cozy old school living room in the very back.

Special tip

If you need a haircut, the barbershop hours are 12pm-9pm. The Back Room is open 6pm-4am, and they accept (and encourage) reservations.

One of my favorite speakeasies. Used to be particular and choosy at the door (if arriving late on a weekend would tell you no entry without bottle service) but hasn’t been like that of late. It’s a tiny space so bottle service is strange here anyway. They have like 3 small areas that would fit 6-8 for that service. Music is amazing old school hip hop. Cocktails are pretty good. Ambiance trendy, cozy.
