Here are the coolest barber shops in Orlando!
#1 ATOMIC BARBER CO.
400 West New England Avenue, Ste 8
Winter Park, Florida 32789
I first spotted Atomic Barber Co. on a stroll through Winter Park after operating hours one evening. I was honestly pretty surprised to see a barber shop occupying some of the most expensive retail space in the greater Orlando area. I took a peek inside and even thought the shop was illuminated only by a dim streetlight, I could see that no expense was spared on the interior.
Just look at that interior. Atomic Barber Co. looks like it could moonlight as a cigar lounge. It's the kind of place I'd want to arrive an hour before my appointment just so I could kick back in their leather sofa and thumb through that copy of "The Book of Rock".
#2 The Ultimate Cave Barbershop
6965 PIAZZA GRANDE AVE #106
ORLANDO, FL 32835
Calling The Ultimate Cave a barbershop does this Brazilian establishment in MetroWest somewhat of an injustice. With its pool table, full service bar, and leather club sofas, it's no wonder every chair was full and several guys seemed to just be hanging out when I visited. Owner Diego Henrique seems to have the winning formula, as his is the shop of choice for many members of the Orlando Magic and the Orlando City Soccer Club.
#3 Townies Barbershop
2909 Corrine Dr, Orlando, FL 32803
Townies Barber Shop has a classic feel, and is decorated with a mix of old school Americana, contemporary pop culture, and military memorabilia. It's laid back, casual, and relaxed. Townies is also kid friendly! As an added bonus, it's surrounded by some of the coolest local business in Orlando, including Park Ave CDs, Stardust Video & Coffee, Redlight Redlight, and the original Gideon's Bakehouse, so there are plenty of places to show of your fresh cut.
#4 Eleanor's Barber Shop
1217 N Mills Ave, Orlando, FL 32803
Eleanor's Barber Shop has a totally different vibe, and that was exactly the goal of owner Tito Santiago. In an interview by Bungalower, he explains that he wanted to differentiate Eleanor's from the large, loud shops with a dozen chairs and the smaller overtly macho shops where many people are uncomfortable. The pink walls should take care of that!
Regardless of where you feel more comfortable, you've got to admit that the distinctly retro look of Eleanor's Barber Shop is a bold and confident choice that is unlike any other in Orlando.
