Need a shave and a cocktail all in one stop? Not to worry. Blind Barber has you covered. With locations already in Culver City, Chicago and New York, the throwback barbershop is setting up in Highland Park, Eater LA reports. Unlike the other locations that have more of a speakeasy vibe, the HP shop encapsulates the styles of the 1970s and 1980s. Blind Barber is expected to open sometime in late January. Blind Barber is located in the 5700 block of N. Figueroa in Highland Park.
