Locals Only; Barbeer Shop
Barbeer is barber shop that soon will be serving beer (it's in the process of getting the alcohol license). It is a barber shop + bar, but it's also a nostalgia shop. When I walked in, I couldn't help but think of Don Draper hanging out in a place like this. It's targeted towards guys with an old school barber flair- it uses straight razors, a high quality pomade, blasts Johnny Cash from the speakers, and smells of freshly cut dudes. One complaint from my husband getting his hair cut at my salon was it was overpriced, and he just felt out of place. Barbeer is close to home, and it's exactly what he was looking for.
It's professional, clean and there are two men's stores connected to the shop. Get your hair cut, grab your coffee, and then pick up a couple shirts all on Center Street Promenade in Anaheim. It is directed for men, but women aren't turned away but they are limited. The barbers employed have their State Board license for barbering and not cosmetology, so if you're a woman looking for a new stylist, this isn't for you. However, if you want a clean bang trim, this is a great place to check out. If you want a hip new place for your man to clean up well, bring him here.
