A matte black, deconstructed piano wall sets the tone when you walk into Barber & Co in Yaletown — this ain’t your average, geriatric barbershop.
Settle in to the vintage leather seats or try your hand at the foosball table before jumping into a classic, Belmont barber chair for a cut, trim or shave. Eclectic and raw decor complements a relaxed, cool attitude in this neighbourhood hang out and barbershop.
Once an industrial park dominated by warehouses and railyards, Yaletown is now a densely populated and characteristic neighbourhood replete with high-rises, eateries, and lively patios.
Eat remarkably fresh seafood at Blue Water Cafe or Wildtale, classic Italian fare in a contemporary hotel at La Pentola, and local, bistro-style cuisine from The Flying Pig. Drink coffee in a hip, modern space at Small Victory, a pint over a game of shuffleboard at The New Oxford, and a cocktail in the trendy speakeasy-style lounge Hello Goodbye. See waterfront views of False Creek at David Lam Park, occasional art exhibits and antique locomotive at Roundhouse Centre.
