— The latest trend to hit the dance music world is the emergence of dance clubs with a barber pole, hair salon and a gymnasium.
The trend has led to the emergence and growth of barbershops in the United States and Europe, which have flourished under the influence of a barbershop culture that includes dancing, socializing, and a sense of community.
Now, some of these new clubs are popping up in the U.S. as well, as more than half of bars in the nation are now clubs, according to a report published by The Dance Industry Association of America.
The report found that of the top 100 American clubs, more than 50% of them are now bars.
Many of the new bars are popping under the guidance of local barbers, with a handful of chains such as Barber, which opened in Denver, and Club La La featuring a bar that features a bar with a pole, a hairstylist and a bar in the gymnasia.
Barbershops are often run by people who already have a good rapport with customers, says Matt Smith, executive director of the dance industry association.
“We’re seeing the emergence, in a lot of these places, of a little bit of a new barber club culture,” he says.
Some of the newer bars have been open for just one or two years, but others have been in business for years.
“It’s a little more of a movement, and it’s a whole new industry that’s bubbling up,” Smith says.
A lot of the clubs have barbers and hairstylists, but the barbers also serve as the general manager.
The barbers’ role in the club is a great asset, because they can make it seem like the barber shop is part of the club, but it’s really just an extension of the bar,” says Jason Kiely, owner of Barbell Barbershop in Louisville, Kentucky.
Kielys has opened Barbell after years of opening bars for customers in his hometown of Louisville.
Kiesly has a reputation for doing things his way.
The shop opened in 2013, with just three customers.
The new barbers have to be willing to take a little risk, too. “
I’ve never seen anything like this before, and that’s just amazing to see,” Kieslys said.
The new barbers have to be willing to take a little risk, too.
“They can go in and make it their own, but then I have to keep the rest of the staff here, too,” Kielys says.
Barbell, which specializes in high-quality barberships, is located in a building that houses the city’s MetroHealth health care system.
The bars are often called “medical clinics,” and are a key part of health care for people with chronic illnesses, including diabetes and heart disease.
Kielys says the bar is a success story.
“The barbers are here and they’re doing a great job, but there are people who don’t like it, because the bar might be in their home,” Kielies says.
The owners of some of the bars have had to deal with a lot in recent years, including a federal investigation that found the bars’ owners violated the law.
A number of the chains have also faced legal battles.
Barber Bitch in Nashville, Tennessee, shut down in 2015, after a woman accused a bar owner of sexual harassment.
That was followed by an incident in which the owner of a Los Angeles bar was arrested for domestic violence.
Kiedly says he and other barbers know their customers and the bar owners.
“If you don’t have good relationships with your customers, it’s not going to work out for you, because it’s going to be a long time,” Kiedlys tells The Associated Press.
A barbers owner from Arizona told the AP that he is suing a bar for not treating his barbers well and that a chain called “Barbershop Bitch” was founded by his barber in the 1990s.
Barbshop Bity has been closed in several states, including California, because of the federal investigation, which led to a number of lawsuits.
BarBots in Las Vegas are popular for people who want to dance and have a little fun with their hair.
They often have a dance floor and a big screen to watch videos of their customers.
“You can’t do that in the real world, so they make it fun and entertaining,” Kioly says.
In addition to the bar, BarBot also offers classes, and many of the restaurants have barber shops, too, including one in Las Venegas, which offers haircuts and other services.
