Blue&Black, "new type of barbershop and apothecary," moved in.
Recently, we received more information on the new neighborhood business from owners Keith Krystofolsky and Anthony DeAngelis.
"BLUE&BLACK offers superior grooming in a chill and creative setting for guys to get a trim, a shave, or a fresh style. BLUE&BLACK isn’t your little brother’s “throwback” barbershop. You’ll find no handlebar moustaches or Edison bulbs here. Rather, you’ll find six chairs in an awesomely spacious, 900 square-feet chill-out pad with a fresh masculine vibe all its own. BLUE&BLACK’s decor nods to Big Sur with a touch of 60s/70s Scandinavia (think: wood, chrome, cream, and white, pops of clay, plant life, and of course Blue & Black). BLUE&BLACK’s styling sensibilities run the gamut from normcore to hardcore, and focus on subtle touches that make the experience and the look unique. BLUE&BLACK’s attitude evokes the chill and laidback vibe of surf/skate culture… No pretense here, just great grooming in a chill setting from professions who aren’t simply barbers, but trusted style advisers who also become friends.
There’s beer from our neighbors at Other Half Brewery on tap and Manhattan Specials for a buzz; you just might hear your next favorite band while you peruse the BLUE&BLACK apothecary, which offers seasonal personal care, accessories, and tools for urban survival. Product and grooming lines include Malin+Goetz, Cool Grease, Civil, Blackbird, BRSH, Marvis, Bálla Powder, and Wary Meyers. BLUE&BLACK brings the best of men’s grooming and lifestyle brands to the locals of the Carroll Gardens, Gowanus, and Red Hook neighborhoods."
Blue and Black is open every day except Tuesdays. Walk-ins are welcome. More information can be found at www.blue&black.com.
