Conceived by Clique Hospitality partners Andy Masi, Ryan Labbe, and Jason Craig as a traditional barbershop and grooming salon by day, the shop will also feature a ‘speakeasy’ style bar that will host live music at night.
“This is a concept we have been wanting to do on the Las Vegas Strip now for some time. We’re extremely excited and honored to have the opportunity to create such a unique venue space,” says Jason Craig, Clique Hospitality partner.
The Barber Shop – The Cosmopolitan debut weekend will see a Friday night performance by Gavin Rossdale and his band Bush, and then on Saturday, the Barbershop’s house band The 442s will take the stage. The 442s, which toured for years with Lifehouse, Vertical Horizon and Savage Garden, includes guitarist Ben Carey as well as singers Justin Carder and Shawn Eiferman, bassist Eric Runquist and drummer Chris Lukes.
The venue will feature DJ programming on Fridays and a live concert on Saturdays. Other upcoming performances scheduled for the barbershop include Dennis Quad & The Sharks as well as Robin Thicke.
