Barber and Beers in Clayfield

Mr Snippets Barber, a popular full-service barbershop, is launching a brand new local bar in Clayfield.

Already well known for its boutique coffee, adding a bar seemed like a natural progression for owner Geordie.

“We offer drinks with a hair service, and excited to have Newstead Brewing beers on tap at the moment,” says Geordie.

“We are also looking forward to getting more involved in the community with trivia nights, open mic nights and a space where locals can hang out.”

Mr Snippets has always been a leader in the Brisbane barbershop scene, and pride themselves on offering their clients the best experience.

“We have gaming entertainment set up when you arrive, great tunes while you are having your service, and now with our bar you can stay afterwards for a few drinks.”

Geordie and the team offer the latest services in men’s hair styling, colour services and grooming.

“Colour is becoming a big fashion trend in the local area. Lots of men want to go blonde, or add some bright colour. Shorter, cropped styles are popular too, as well as a rise in longer, sweptback styles,” says Geordie.

Geordie, who has been in the trade for over a decade, is excited to see the industry evolving.

“When I started barbering ten years ago it was all about fast haircuts – in and out the door. Now, we treat our barber shop like a one-stop man-shop, where clients can have a colour, eyebrow wax, beard maintenance, hot towel face shaves…it’s really an experience,” says Geordie.
