On the corner of 4th and Monroe there sits a unique business. What makes this a unique business is that it is not only a barber shop, where men and boys go to get their hair cut, but it is also a tavern, a place to go have some craft beer or a bloody mary.
The barbershop section of the business is separated from the tavern with a partition wall housing a door and a large window pane. Depending on which side of the building you are sitting; at the bar waiting for your turn in the barber’s chair, or in the chair getting your hair cut, you can easily see what is going on in either side of the building. Of course because of the liquor laws in this country, no one under 21 can enter the tavern section, so obviously no drinks are offered to minors. But minors still get a treat while waiting. A bucket full of candy sits at the end of the room awaiting youngsters to help themselves.
If you haven’t noticed after looking at the photos…they do have a unique way of writing their business name….The Hair of the Dog Bar/Bershop.
On my next venture there I am thinking of having one of their "Tito Bloody Mary" drinks…who’s coming with me?
