2010

april 2010

Blind Barber opens in the East Village. An idea that Jeff had written on a piece of paper comes to life thanks to some handshakes and Josh and Adam’s killer experience in the F&B world.

The minute the doors opened, we knew we were onto something. Friends came through, parties were thrown and a brand was born.

Ideas are real things with real energy. You just need to have the right ingredients to bring them to life: hard work, passion, honesty and most importantly, great friends. see video

We did our first pop up at Project NYC.

Sat down with Marcus Troy to talk about how it all felt. We built this whole set up by hand (it was actually too big to fit through the door so we had to cut it in half and put back together once inside).

This was a big step for us, bringing our brand into the lifestyle & fashion realm.

Covid Hits. What a wild time.

In a blink of an eye, the world had shut down, OUR world had shut down. There was no end in sight so all we did was the best we could with what had available. see video

January - June 2021

COVID: It was relentless. It never let up. Time crawled by; defined by masks, glass partitions, weird rules, false starts and uncertainity. However, through all of that madness we and our communities stuck together and in Dec 2021 the restrictions were lifted. We were back in biz. see video

And to think, all of this from a simple beer with a haircut. Here's to the next 10 years. Stay Handsome.
