Is it just me, or does Wedgewood/Houston just keep getting cooler? Last week, The Blockhouse, a barbershop-bar-hybrid, opened its doors down the street from Houston Station. Located in the May Hosiery Co-Op, The Blockhouse features a full-service bar and a six-chair barbershop.
"Leather couches, a pool table, a dartboard and television screens in an industrial space give the bar a laid-back vibe. A glass wall separates the bar from the barbershop. Eventually, The Blockhouse will have a smoking patio in the back and members who have access to a locker can keep a small humidor for cigars." - The Tennessean
“The Blockhouse design comes from our desire to have a place where we would want to hang out. Concrete, wood, steel and whiskey...every aspect of our concept is built around that desire.” explains Founder Jerrod Brown. “We wanted to build a place where men can go and feel comfortable getting a haircut while also offering a space and atmosphere where you don’t feel like you have to rush in and out. Come early, stay late.”
Wedgewood/Houston is quickly emerging as one of Nashville's trendiest neighborhoods. You can't go more than a block without discovering something new, cool, and adventurous. From record pressing factories, to bars, to art galleries, Nashville's top creatives are planting roots in the neighborhood. We're very much looking forward to seeing what's up next!
