From the street you won’t see the typical barber pole or geriatric barber who can cut a flat top in three minutes. What you will see is a selection of men in their 20’s and 30’s probably sporting tattoos & Goohrin Bros. Hats, exchanging clippers for shears and bobbing their heads to underground hip hop or electro. With a completely deconstructed piano greeting guests, vintage deep red leather barber chairs and arcane neon – accented light installations the décor is eclectic and raw.
Through the glass door at the back of the barber shop Killjoy Barbers cocktail club can be seen. Here you can sip and savour a glass of wine on tap or a gin cocktail poured by Yaletown’s finest cocktail bartenders, while Chefs customize meat and cheese offerings from favoured local suppliers – the perfect pairing.
Custom lights from Chromoly float above the staircase leading down to a small, low-ceilinged nightclub space, glowing dimly with exposed bulb fixtures, lighting cinderblock brick and glassed-in walls that are over 100 years old. The rough warehouse feel of the room is barely offset by the minimalist, modern furnishings and contemporary tunes pumping out of the DJ booth.
