Our Shop

Established in 2015

Our motto is E.G.O. which means “Experience a Gentleman’s Oasis,” because in a world that can be stressful to say the least  every man should have an oasis where he can escape the rigors of life and enjoy the camaraderie of colleagues and friends in an atmosphere that is both manly and therapeutic.

We stand on a tall legacy of barbershops that have been pillars in the community by teaching young men how to shake a man’s hand, providing a place for men to network, and being a place to celebrate the milestones of life such as graduation, marriage, and promotion. We gladly take part in this legacy.


Great people and amazing cuts. It’s been a long time since a barber shop felt like a safe space for the community. Barbers here are friendly and insightful. Highly recommend!
