Get A Fresh Cut at… Barclay’s Center??

barclay's barbershopJust when you thought the Barclay’s Center couldn’t get any better!  GQ Magazine and Fellow Barber (who have locations in Soho, West Village and Williamsburg), are partnering to launch a full functioning barbershop in Barclay’s Center this Friday, January 10th.  The launch will happen during the Nets vs. Heat game.  The barbershop will be 400 square feet, and will offer a full service menu of straight razor shaves, hair cuts and GQ approved products.  This is a way for GQ to connect with their readers outside of the traditional pages of their magazine, and Barclay’s Center gives them the opportunity to reach almost 18,000 people per event for over 100 events per year.   “We are thrilled to team up with Fellow Barber and Barclays Center on the first-ever GQ Barbershop,” said Chris Mitchell, GQ vice president and publisher. “It is the ideal intersection of style and entertainment…. And what better place than Brooklyn, one of the coolest cities on the planet, to launch this venture.”  The barbershop will contribute to the neighborhood ambiance of the arena, and guests will get the full Brooklyn experience when they visit.
