Bob, the owner, has been in the accommodation and real estate business for years, but found his true passion within the barber industry. He says that a lot of research and planning went into this baby of his. They use only the best, yet affordable, grooming products and they really focused on creating the shop with the true aesthetic of what a barbershop should be – using classical barber chairs with legendary vintage celebrity wallpaper imagery.

You can clearly see The Mens Club’s revolving barber light from a distance, instantly giving you the true feel of “barberness”. Because of Bob’s Irish decent, he decided to go with the red and white light instead of the American red, white and blue option.
