Description

The Blind Barber in East Village has a very cool concept that distinguishes it from most barbershops. The barber shop area has hipster that is cool, but this place also has a full fledged bar in the back. During the day, you can get a haircut and complementary cocktail. Then, at night the backroom transforms into a speakeasy cocktail bar.

Just went in this morning for the first time. Got a great haircut from Dan and the price was very reasonable. Would definitely go back again!

After relocating to NY, I cycled through 5 barbers and hairdressers before finding *my* barber at Blind Barber. The location is swanky and bougie (in the basement of a Barney’s) but the service and prices are down to earth. I’ve come back here to my barber 5+ times and have always been able to book a chair in the early evening. I recommend! 💇‍♂️read more

Excellent barber shop! Was taken care of right away as a walk-in, and the haircut was superb.

Super cool bar. Everything about this place was nice. Bar tender "Teg" (definitely spelled it wrong) was super chill and took care if my cousin and I.

The place is great. Speakeasy bar with a barbershop in front and then you can enter the bar through the back door. Best old fashioned i have tried in Manhattan. Loved the vibe of the place. Bartender was awesome, skilled, and bilingual which I liked, (Thanks JC) our drinks were right on point, and he made us feel welcomed and appreciated. Will definitely come back. Nice spotread more

Good drinks but the music was so loud that we had to scream into each other's ears to have a conversation. The music selection was great but I would t recommend it if you're looking for a chill bar to catch up with your friends at.read more

Speakeasy entrance works well. But too big inside for a Wednesday night >> felt really empty and killed the mood. Good drinks

Review of the barber shop. Best haircut hands down. Dylan was super talented and professional. Came in from the hot sun overheating a bit and he made me feel accepted and comfortable the whole time that I could relax and let my worries go in the barber chair. I got probably the best cut off my life so I now know the hype. Worth every penny, even got a refreshing cerveza in the back while I waited. This shop is legit and I can see why Bryce Harper partners with them. 11/10 recommend.read more

Barber review: awesome haircut with a reasonable (slightly premium) pricing. During COVID they're taking sensible precautions (everyone in masks and eye covering, no shaves) but it's good that they're open and following guidelines. Bookings are required and they've allowing extra time between cuts. Sadly, no drinks from the speakeasy at the back, but it's still worth it to support a cool venture like this.read more

They have absolutely delicious cocktails, the epitome of a Speak Easy and it's a great date spot! It's pretty empty during the week, but I tend to like that more as it creates a more intimate setting.

Great idea, interior and bar design. The DJ however was of very low quality, extremely sudden and random transitions, track selection that didn’t seem to have any theme or be well received by the visitors. The crowd didn’t seem to match the style of the bar either.read more

Eli was wonderful, he gave me a really beautiful fade. The facility was safe, clean, & covid-precautions were in place.

The batman was good. Strawberry one is ok. They have a lot of space but for some reason not a lot of seats, just standing space.

Great for the mid to late 20s - early 30s crowd. Dance and drink with friends.Does get packed, not for those who like a space from others.The bartenders are awesome. Best whiskey sour I have ever had. I normally find them too sour.read more

Cool place, nice atmosphere, good music, they play a bunch of classics, gets tight inside which is great, and too much light. Young, even college, crew though, which was a but if a throw off for us.

This place is one of the best night out places ever. The bartenders are really great, the place is usually crowded and the prices are pretty average for NYC. The location is also great. And the music? it’s one of the best. Always playing hit rap and pop songs.read more

Went to the bar around 10/11 on a Friday night and there was no line (I say that because once we left, there was a very long line). As you may imagine, it's behind the barber shop so you enter through there.We were greeted by 2 lively hosts and were stamped and let in. It was super crowded but we jetted to the bar as quickly as we could. Asked for a tequila drink and a rum drink - bartenders choice - and both were yummy!Music was mostly 90s and 00s r&b and pop throwbacks which we loved! A lot of drunk, young annoying people there too but didn't bother us much when they weren't spilling drinks.I'd go back but not top of the listread more

You think getting a haircut by a blind barber is a good idea? Do you? Seriously? Yeah it is! What a blast! Never know what’s gonna happen next! Watch out for those scissors around my ears! My friends call me Vincent Van Gogh now! What a blast!read more
