NOW OPEN: Barbershop By Day, Bar By Night – Blind Barber Nashville


Now open on October 6th, Blind Barber has landed in Nashville’s buzzy Gulch neighborhood. A barbershop by day and cocktail lounge by night, guests can expect not only the best haircuts & grooming products in Music City, but also the best cocktails and entertainment for an epic night out. The concept’s arrival marks a notable step for the brand, an NYC-based hospitality venture founded by Jeff Laub, Josh Boyd, Adam Kirschenbaum and Matt Breen, as Nashville joins spots in LA, NYC, Chicago and Philly to mark the company’s seventh location. Uniquely crafted to each neighborhood they call home, Blind Barber brings a discrete, elevated yet high-energy destination to Music City’s nightlife scene.

“Blind Barber was built on the premise that ‘you are only as good as those you surround yourself with,’ so when we had the opportunity to explore Nashville as a destination for our next spot, there was no doubt it needed to happen,” says co-owner Jeff Laub. “You can see and feel the creative and passionate energy all over the city, not to mention the music scene. Music is such an integral part of our brand; from the tunes played in the shop to the DJs taking every patron on a journey, music has always been such an important piece to the moments we create. Now, with our Nashville outpost, we’re lucky enough to be in the heart of it all. The local staff that makes up Blind Barber Nashville, the neighbors and friends we have already met, and the inspiration Music City brings to the table makes this opening feel incredibly special, like the first Blind Barber all over again.”

Furthering its commitment to featuring the best talent and entertainment, Blind Barber is pleased to welcome acclaimed country music singer-songwriter ERNEST as a partner for the Nashville concept. Known for his certified platinum debut hit single, “Flower Shops” featuring Morgan Wallen, the country artist is also a talented songwriter responsible for dozens of top country songs, landing #1 hits with artists such as Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Chris Lane and more. As the only Blind Barber location to feature live music in addition to DJs, ERNEST will provide creative guidance on writer’s rounds and other live music events at Blind Barber, along with partnerships and charitable initiatives that support the music industry community.


By day and early evening, a classic three-chair barbershop marked solely by an iconic striped barber pole offers haircuts, shaves, blow dries and styles. Each service features the brand’s line of high-quality, award-winning grooming products endorsed by Blind Barber co-owner and partner, Major League Baseball All-Star Bryce Harper. Inside, white walls and white hexagon floor tiles keep the space bright and intimate, while black and chrome Belmont chairs sit at barber stations adorned with distressed wooden wall paneling for an industrial vintage vibe. A brand staple, complimentary signature cocktails are offered with every Blind Barber service.

By night, enter through a door in the back where a swanky and seductive 70’s-inspired speakeasy awaits. Dripping In gold trim and accents, the expansive bar is the highlight of the room. Warm brown and orange throwback tones throughout the space are complemented by Tiffany-style vintage amber glowing lights, rich wallpaper and the brand’s iconic “Pretty Please” neon sign. Relax while sipping at intimate velour booth, or hit the spacious dance floor by the wood-paneled DJ booth while enjoying bottle service. At Blind Barber, there is something for every mood.


The hip vibe is perfectly paired with a cocktail menu that offers a thoughtfully crafted lineup of cocktails and mocktails, from nostalgic classics to fresh innovations. Guests can expect some Blind Barber signatures such as Strawberry Fields made with vodka, Cocchi Rosa, Strega, strawberry and lemon; Hot Heather with gin, tequila, Pamplemousse, pineapple, lime and ginger; and the Batman with gin, Italicus Rosolio, Peychaud Bitters, lemon and mint.
