Bar Ber Black Sheep is the brain child of Rory Sandilands, owner of Blo salon in Parkwood and Maboneng. He wanted to create a space people felt was an authentic barber shop, but where they could also have a whisky and cigar pre or post-shave and style. A space where patrons would just pop in after a long day for a whisky, beer, glass of wine or coffee which would ultimately become a favourite local watering hole; a grooming shop suggestive of a man cave. Patrons have a choice of bespoke grooming services, from a quick shave or trim to an executive experience (think three hot towels, hot foam shave with all the bells and whistles), as well as all other unisex hairstyling services.
