Blind Barber—a concept that operates as a barbershop by day and a cocktail lounge by night—has reopened its Culver City, California location with a revamped look designed in-house.
The relaunch of the brand’s first West Coast outpost marks a significant milestone for Blind Barber, which was founded in New York in 2010 by Jeff Laub, Adam Kirschenbaum, Josh Boyd, and Matt Breen.
“We are thrilled to unveil the new and improved Blind Barber Culver City,” says Boyd. “For us, reopening this location is not just about bringing back the place where it all began; it’s celebration of the community and spirit that make Blind Barber a reality. This space has always been a special place for us, and we’ve poured our hearts and souls into making it even better. It’s a homecoming we’ve longed for, and we’re excited to share it with both old friends and new faces.”
The concept maintains its unique identity as both barbershop and cocktail bar, while its refreshed looks brings a new energy. The front barbershop area features pristine white walls and stylish hexagon floor tiles. The four barber stations feature sleek black and chrome chairs set against distressed wooden wall paneling that adds an industrial vintage feel.
As night falls, a discreet door in the back of the barbershop opens to a seductive, 1970s-inspired speakeasy. Departing from its original prohibition-era design, the new Culver City bar exudes a sultry atmosphere thanks to deep red Venetian walls, wood paneling, and an ambient red neon light.
The dimly lit space features red leather stools at the bar, plush oxblood booths, and a wood-paneled DJ booth overlooking a dancefloor with red and black checkerboard floors.
