Blind Barber

The Culver City bar’s East Side sibling is a cocktail bar, hidden behind a barber shop, with a distinct retro feel.

Blind Barber, which also has outposts in NYC and Chicago, has now landed in Highland Park, continuing the North East LA transformation into an electrifyingly cool neighborhood.

Inspired by Southern California of the 1970s – think Boogie Nights – the new spot features a wood-accented bar, plus spacious booths, wooden midcentury chairs and tweed wallpaper. There’s an original oak floor, vintage art and furniture from neighboring shops, palm prints and, to the right, a more private room where you can sip cocktails. 

The menu is all about grilled cheese sandwiches—complete with dipping sauces such as truffle aioli and harissa ketchup—plus pastrami reuben tacos, hummus, tomato soup and kale salad. U’ll also find rotating beers, wines and a killer happy hour every day the bar’s open.
