A remarkable old-world parlour reinterpreted — the Barber & Co in Cambie Village has antiquated charm blended with a modern take on the cut, trim and shave.
Racy pop-art dresses the industrial concrete walls which pave the way past restored, 1940s-era Koken barber chairs. A classic pinball machine and earnest atmosphere make for a casual, leisure-like experience.
Named for Canadian Pacific Railway engineer Henry Cambie, this small neighbourhood features many charming heritage houses, some friendly parks, and a fast-growing strip of bars and restaurants easily accessed by sky train.
