The owner, Ruben, looks after you and personalises every experience. Always a pleasure. Good music complements banterful conversation, complementary beer and optional hair-washes. Haircuts are always A+ with serious attention to detail - finished with a refreshing mint-infused hot towel.read more

I've been coming to Ruben's shop for over two years and his barbershop is the best in town! I no longer live in the East Village, having moved to Hamilton Heights recently, but I always make a point to come here to get my haircut. They offer a free beer with your haircut, great hair wash with scalp massage service. If you want to get your haircut, have a few laughs with the friendly staff and customers, this is the place to come!read more

I had a great experience here. I only give 4 stars because the layout of the whole salon is a bit confusing. However, the man who worked on my hair was very conversational and that made up for the peculiarity of the salon in my case. I would go again!read more

Started coming here after my roommate was getting great fades. Every time I’m in here Ruben has different people dropping in to bring him green juice, it’s hilarious

Ruben and his barbers do a tremendous job and for a very reasonable price. Best value I've seen in the city for a clean men's haircut.

Ruben is super professional and cultivates a laid back environment where you immediately feel like a regular. He gives an A+ cut and always delivers, no matter how difficult the ask. I have and will continue to recommend this to anyone looking for a cut in the city.read more

Tried a bunch of barber shops in the area once I moved here and got some pretty terrible haircuts. Found this barbershop and I’ll never go anywhere else again. Love the guys that work there too.

East Village Barbershop is hands down my favorite barbershop in NYC! Ruben, the owner, is the most charismatic (not to mention talented) barber I’ve encountered so far. When I step into his shop I feel like a friend, not a customer. Before COVID I would get my haircut and be in there for an hour longer just talking with Ruben and the other customers. It’s really a great place for the community! Also, the haircut you get will be great! Stay sexy!read more

I've been coming to Ruben for 5 years, and at this point I can't imagine finding anyone who could give me a better haircut. Or anyone who takes the needs of his customers more seriously. At the start of the pandemic, I moved to CT and having tried a couple of places up here, I now drive 90 mins to the city every month just for a haircut. Being in the music and entertainment industry, having a fashionable look is extremely important, and I always know I'm going to leave Ruben looking great.read more

Been coming here since they opened about 8 years ago in the neighborhood. I actually moved to a different neighborhood but keep coming back because you can't beat this place. Best cuts around, consistent quality, and always good people and a positive vibe in the shop. Ruben is the man!read more

Best haircut on the island. I have been going for years and will continue regardless of where I live! The cut is amazing but it is bested by the conversation that are had.

Truly my favorite place to get a haircut of all time. I’ve probably gotten 12 haircuts from Ruben over the past 2 years, and every single one has been excellent. The barber shop is right next to me in the East Village, and it’s strikingly easy to walk in and get a cut. I could not recommend this place more, especially if you’re a guy who has struggled with finding good haircuts in the past. Definitely check out East Village Barbershop.read more

East Village Barbershop is the best barbershop I’ve been to in a long long time. Ruben is brilliant. If barbers are great listeners, Ruben is the epitome. He will engage you, make you feel so comfortable, and understand all that you want in a cut, and even more about you, in no time at all. You see, Ruben is a true master, he hears you wholly and cuts, trims, fades your hair and your beard in ways only possible because he sees you when he hears you. You walk in, he is already listening. The hot towel to finish, so great!This is the best of the best. Go to this barbershop!! For a great haircut yes, and to feel so great about life, yes that too!read more
