The Barber’s Closet

I’m posting this here for posterity. I downloaded it a while back and keep moving the file from computer to computer. I suppose this isn’t exactly permanent, either, but it’s better than nothing.

The menu only tells part of the story. My first visit to this place was perfectly executed, with my friends not telling me where we were going, taking me into what looked like a barber shop, pulling on the wall, and then leading me into a candle-lit room that was absolutely timeless.

There were sofas and drapes blocking off areas where people could have interesting discussions over a giant fishbowl of a drink. Sure, there were pages of the menu that were limited to a maximum of two per customer, but the entirety of the experience was the magic. And it was magic.

  1. THANK YOU!!!! I downloaded this a few years ago onto an old computer that I can’t access anymore so I have been SEARCHING for this again. Thank you a million times over for posting this – I have nothing but amazing memories from the Barber’s Closet, and being able to drink an Oscar brings it all back to me. Love you.
