Two parts time-honoured barbershop, one part stately social club — Barber & Co Main Street is the well-crafted whiskey sour of men’s cuts, trims and shaves.
An inspired flora installation above the leather couch clad living room makes for lively banter before or after a visit to one of the restored, vintage barber chairs. Burnt wood walls, local artwork and a laid-back attitude makes for an experience in the tradition and craft of a genuine barber.
An old neighbourhood that has effortlessly made a transition from working class to arts class over the last decade, Main Street is engaged cultural hub inhabited by the cities young and hip.
Eat a refined, small plate brunch at Burdock & Co, seasonal Pacific Northwest fare from Nomad, and modern day twists on diner style food like burgers and milkshakes at Fable Diner. Drink exotic cocktails at The Shameful Tiki, curious and unique beers from Brassneck Brewery, and house-roasted coffee with donuts from 49th Parallel. See local mural artwork dripping with creativity in the alleys and building sides, contemporary works of art at Equinox Gallery, and an ironic antidote to the digital age at Regional Assembly of Text.
