Brush Barber Shop, Łódź
Hold on, did you just say “barber shop“? Is this not supposed to be a list of bars? It is. And that’s exactly the point. Some local entrepreneur in the city of Łódź came up with a genius idea: when bars are quiet in the daylight hours, the building doesn’t have to go to waste. Similarly, when barber shops and hairdresser shops are quiet at night, people could be drinking in the very same room. And that is the niche that Brush successfully fills. Not only can you get a haircut during the day, but come back at night and it is one of Łódź’s finest cocktail bars. The smoked whiskey cocktail is sublime, sipped in a secret bar zone known as “OFF”, just off Łódź’s main pedestrian street, Ulica Piotrkowska. In the daytime, you’ll see people getting a haircut here, yet could never predict the venue transforms at night. Do be aware that the opening times listed for both the ‘haircut’ and ‘cocktail’ periods and times can be irregular and change. As for the photos of the venue, can you spot the difference?
