Description

The Blind Barber in Philadelphia offers a unique combination of old-school barber shop and speakeasy cocktail bar. Initially it appears to be a swanky retro barber shop, but in the back there is a hidden lounge, with velvet booths, floral wallpaper, and dim lighting. And of course, drinks. The haircuts are on the more expensive end, but you get a complementary cocktail, not just some beer, to sip on during your cut. If this type of atmosphere intrigues you, then Blind Barber is the place you are looking for.

I just got my haircut here, hands down one of the best haircut experiences of my life. Price of haircut is $55 but includes complimentary drink (not just Bud Light, I got a high end whiskey on the rocks included with the cut) and the attached bar and overall experience is first- class. Haircut itself was extremely well done as the barber even educated me on what he was doing and how to take care of the hair. Worth the money.read more

Owner is new to the city and a very genuine person. The best experience I've had stepping into a new barbershop. You're welcomed like a regular and it's an environment you just want to hang out in. Incredible cut it's obvious why these barbershops are in cities around the country. They're a step above most.read more

Omg love the vibe !! I love the whole “speak easy” theme! We went for the burlesque show on the first Thursday and it was top notch experience !!The only issue we had was the waitress was horrible! She bypassed us about 4 times. We ended up merging with another table and they complained as well that they waited 30 minutes for service. It was only until we physically stood up and yelled for her she paid us any attention... and we are very good friends with one of the burlesque dancers so I think she noticed and came running. Terrible TERRIBLE cocktail waitress. Besides that the place is awesomeread more

Blind barber is an awesome speakeasy off of sansom and 13th. There can be a line from time to time but overall great spot to meet people.Will be packed in the summer for sure.

Recently tried Blind Barber for the first time and walked away thoroughly impressed. I've been to many barbers in Philly and this is one of the best. Gave a great haircut and took their time. Fairly priced. Prime location too, close to subway and restaurants/bars. Highly recommend!read more

This is one of the most professional barber shops I’ve been too. It’s not just a haircut, it’s an experience. What’s great is the barbers here work with you to really customize your haircut to your head shape, hair type and the style you’re looking to get. The best part for me has been how good they’ve been about masks during covid. They only have 1 customer in the entire shop at a time, both the barber and the customer have proper masks (above their noses/mouths).read more

I was really excited for this place because I love craft cocktails. The ambience is great, entering through the barbershop is fun, but the cocktails are really nothing special. I tried 4 different cocktails (my friends and I all got different ones) and every one of them was just bland. Not bad, I just expect a lot better from a speak easy themed bar and at that price point.If your just going in to get a beer then I’m sure it’s 5 stars lol.read more

Upstairs is loud and busy, but downstairs is a peaceful, quiet speakeasy with a delightful bartender. Sneaks into the barbershop in the corner and pass through the back door. FUN! Bring your vax card!read more

Blind Barber is a really top-notch service that really gives barber shops a good name. Their main haircut package is on the expensive side, but includes a drink (alcoholic or not) in the price. If you don’t want the drink, the price is the same, so I wouldn’t suggest going here if you care about the value of your dollar for a haircut only.In any case, the barber’s are lovely and the haircut I got was great!read more

The male dj was a bit messy with the song selection. It felt more like a concert than a dance bar. The woman dj was far better. Idk why this man was chosen. He also wouldn't take recommendations and instead play very lame songs with some background dance music. It was not a good experience. I usually come for the music since the drinks are trash, but this was a bad experience. Idk if I'll come back 😔read more

Decent spot. The gimmick of entering through the barber shop is a fun thing. Might try to take someone here who didn't know it was a bar, since it would make for a good surprise.They really shouldn't have seats all around both bars when they're busy. Also, the drinks were inconsistent from one bartender to the next.read more

Fun "speakeasy" style location located at the far end of a functioning barber shop.Drinks were very yummy, service and menu options could have been more on point.The only food available during our visit were empanadas that could not be purchased at the bar.read more

Really cool if you like the speakeasy feel. You can have a nice quiet night in the lower section, or party it up upstairs.

Thought it was a bar. It was more of a club/bar. Up and down stairs. Okay drinks. I had one bartender on first floor make an awful Old fashion. Had to ask her colleague to make me another one which was made correctly. But I had to pay for both? Lame.read more

Visited on Friday night. The entrance through the back of the barbershop was really cool. Sat upstairs and the space has the feel of a dimly lit 70's basement. There are small seating areas for groups of 2-3 as well a few larger tables. The music is very loud. Service is poor. It took us a long time to track down our waitress to order our drinks. The drinks themselves were just average. Though the feel was very authentically "speakeasy," the drinks and service were not worth it. Would probably not visit again.read more

Fun speakeasy hidden inside a barber shop. Lots of cocktail and beer options.Inside, there is a small bar with a few tables on the first level. Upstairs is a larger bar with several seating areas.Definitely pop in for a drink when you are in the neighborhood.My only complaints are that most of the specialty drinks were pre-mixed, not made fresh and their specialty drink menu is pretty small.read more

Great little speakeasy. You walk into a "barber shop" show your I'd to the biyncer and head upstairs for exceptional cocktails, great DJ and lovely vibes. Excellent all around.

I have went in about a year ago and had Alex cut my hair. I asked him if he can give me a cut that would grow to be a good look when it gets long. He exceeded my expectation by giving me a new hair cut that I actually liked even more then what I wanted and it even grew into what I wanted when it got to that point. Highly recommend them they know there stuff and they are very inviting to enjoy a cold beverage after in there secret spaces.read more
