In New York, a barber shop turns into a club every weekend
During the day, the Blind Barber is a beauty salon in New York where men come for a shave or haircut. As evening draws in, the place is transformed into a bar, and even club on Friday and Saturday nights.
The founder’s aim is to move closer to the original function of the barber shop: a social place for relaxing and sharing ideas.
To promote a friendly atmosphere, the salon offers a cocktail to every client who has come in for a shave or haircut.
When night falls, the New York salon becomes a bar where guys can have a drink and listen to music. At weekends, it converts into a club, open until 6 in the morning.
This innovative strategy of mixing a friendly activity (the bar) with its initial purpose (hairdressing), allows the barber shop to attract and meet a diverse clientele depending on the hour of the day.
