    The Blind Barber speakeasy is hands down one of my favorite lounges in LA that happens to be hidden behind a real barbershop. Go through the backdoor of the shop and be transported narnia style into a hallway that leads into a sleek lounge w/ checkered floors.

    Originally from New York City, I am glad they expanded out here and love how this West LA location feels like a hideaway clubhouse to those who find the unassuming barber sign out front.

    Drop in before 6pm to get a haircut (every cut comes with a free drink), enjoy their delicious menu of grilled cheese gourmet sandwhiches, sip on their seasonal cocktails, and listen to the sounds of their talented music selectors (DJs) that they have on the weekend and on select week days. Being a music enthusiast myself, I especially enjoy the DJ's they curate here. I have been there several times and have seen well known DJ's spinning unassumingly which made this place so much cooler to me.

    Here is a mix I particularly like where the Blind Barber teamed up with NYC DJ Dash Speaks. Enjoy!

    Great place to get some tasty drinks with surprisingly good service!
    They have many interesting cocktails on the menu, both regular and seasonal drinks. All the ones I tried were really tasty. Only one was completely off, and I think they messed it up. The waitress was nice enough to get us another drink to replace it!

    Enter through a door located inside a barber shop and you'll feel like you walked into a secret-speakeasy bar.

    Spacier than what I have expected and dimly lit. They have crafted cocktails which could be a hit or miss. The popular cocktail for the ladies is called "Strawberry Fields". From what I remember the sweetness wasn't overwhelming. I'd give it a C+ because I love my drinks pretty sweet.

    They do have food for peeps who come in hungry. Heard Mac n Cheese is their popular dish.

    Parking: street parking! Wasn't that hard to find. I almost missed the bar when I was driving down Washington Blvd.

    This is a good place to stop by and chillax if you're nearby. Not really a place I would go out of my way for.

    Shave & a haircut...........two bits!

    Flashback to the Prohibition Era, where Speakeasies offered libations clandestinely to avoid the long arm of the law.

    From the outside, Blind Barber looks like a simple, full service barber shop, where customers receive a complimentary cocktail with their cut.

    The barbers know just the cut a guy needs to make women swoon.

    However, make your way to the back of the barbershop & you're brought back to the speakeasies of old. A full service bar with booths and tables to enjoy one of Blind Barber's signature cocktails or their gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. Blind Barber's grilled cheese sandwiches are legit & worth the $10 price tag which includes a small kale salad.

    Friendly bartenders & waitresses help you unwind after a long day of work or to kickstart your weekend off right. The barkeeps kept my club sodas w/ limes flowing the whole night, since I don't drink. Music was on blast & the 90's rap songs on rotation the night I was there brought me back to my younger days.

    Once a month, Blind Barber has The Secret Show, a free comedy show on a Wednesday night. Street parking is available in front, on Midway Ave. and the Best Buy shopping center directly behind the building.

    Looking to relax? Perhaps availing yourself of a nip/tuck before turning in? Then, I highly recommend checking out Blind Barber in Culver City. Have a haircut & then slide on over to the back for a nibble and/or a tipple.

    Love this hidden gem. If you walk into this barber, first thing in your head is like where is this place? Well, the barber guy will tell ya. A hidden bar behind this barber shop. It has a speakeasy vibe and its very calm. Great place to bring your date. Drinks ranges from $8-14. There's happy hour from 5pm-8pm!

    Drive down Washington Blvd and you might miss this place near Culver Center/Best Buy.

    Street parking with meters will be your main option unless you risk parking in the Best Buy and walk.

    The place has big floor to ceiling glass, store-front windows.
    They have old school barber chairs which recline where you can enjoy a nice shave.

    Pro tip- this is a speakeasy.
    There is a bar hidden behind the barbershop.

    Walk though the "secret" door and be amazed to find a bar.
    The place is dimly lit. But, it is not dark.
    They have awesome grilled cheese sandwiches. I lost count after 50. Okay maybe a dozen but they are all so delicious.

    If you want a chill place to have decent drinks, go check it out.

    This is a true speakeasy. You have to walk through a real barber shop to get into the back speakeasy bar. Blind Barber originally came from NYC and just opened in the heart of Culver City this past year. It's such a cool spot. I highly recommend!

    A dozen delicious grilled cheese sandwiches to pick from?!? Yes! They just unveiled their new menu last night and the options are diverse and fun. I tried grilled cheese #5- Taleggio/Aged Parm/Shiitake/Crimini/Truffle Oil/Rosemary Olive Oil Bread. It was an ooey gooey delight. I also really liked the lemon vinaigrette on the small kale salad on the side. The drinks were strong and tasty, and the gentlemen pouring them were definitely easy on the eyes. I look forward to returning to this hidden spot!
