In the 1920s, the United States signed and put into effect the 18th Amendment, the prohibition of alcoholic beverages. As a result, speakeasies emerged from the concrete and mixology experts brainstormed and created illegal but ingenious cocktail concoctions to sustain America's taste and sense of unwind. After a little over a decade, the amendment was appealed, legal beverages began to flow again, but the popularity of the bar style never faded. Today, NYC has an awesome innovative array of speakeasy bars. Among them is the very unique Blind Barber. Step into the front door and you will find a couple barbers ready to cut, trim, and shave. Walk to the back wall, through the sliding door, and embrace a dim setting with furnishings and interior designs from multiple past decades, and mixology as an art.

Talk about a genius speakeasy; barber shop at the entrance, hip bar in the back. Awesome spot to grab a drink in the Alphabet City, non pretentious, good drinks. Definitely an outside the box NYC gem.

My favorite speakeasy in New York that I have been to so far. The entrance itself is a pretty sweet wow factor to show visitors or first timers. If you go on a Monday it is a really good spot to grab a drink and chat up the bartender and if you go on Thursday- Saturday it is packed and great for dancing! The drinks are fabulous and well thought out.

With a barber shop in the front and speakeasy-style bar in the back, the Blind Barber might be the perfect place for all those bartenders with fancy mustaches to work. I ended up here one Sunday night after a long week of New York City style hedonism. The drinks were expertly made though I don’t recall which one I had, and the bar banter was perfect for a Sunday night where I felt like ass. I’d like to stop in here for a shave or a haircut at some point, too. They range from $20-$40 and each come with a cocktail. (Oh, they actually have barbers here? That’s cool. Can you make this a bit more obvious?) Hopefully the barbers aren’t drinking them too.
