Looking for a great place in NYC for cocktails, craft beers, or wine with a cool vibe, music, and attractive people? Give The Blind Barber a try if you haven't already. Be it a night out with friends or a date, this place is fantastic for drinks pre-dinner, post-dinner, or late night.
If you haven't been before, don't be confused by the barber shop at the front of the shop. The drinks are in the back room. Speakeasy-ness decor, mostly black and white, with mood lighting and a variety of music depending upon the night.
They have three locations... LA, the East Village, and earlier this year they opened their third location in Brooklyn. Hours and food options vary per location.
They always have different things happen at each location, so follow them on Facebook to keep up-to-date. For example, the LA location, which celebrated it's 2nd anniversary in May, has a live music series called UNWIND which started this month.
They also have a hair product line that can be purchased at their shops or at Barney's. Oh, and you can also get a haircut which comes with one free drink!
