Open for Business: Nick's Quality Barber Shop, 111 Seventh Avenue

A new barber shop opened last week in the small space that was last home to Sprint Wireless World, on Seventh between Carroll and President.

The old-fashioned shop is a rather no-frills enterprise (it's got the spinning barber pole and everything), with three chairs and not much else. It's run by Nick himself, who will be there seven days a week giving haircuts and Hot Royal Shaves. Men's haircuts are only 15 bucks, and they're open during the week from 9-7, Saturdays from 9-6, and Sundays from 10-5.

Nick's Quality Barber Shop, 111 7th Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215. 347-804-6361.

I have been going to Nick for a couple years now. I used to work in Melville by his old shop. Really happy to hear he has opened shop in the slope. I highly recommend Nick. $15 for a quality haircut.

There it is!

Where was Nick located previously, Joseph?

It's a very cute old school type shop and the fact that it replaced a cell phone store makes it even better.

That's two old-school barber shops, as well as fancier, edgier type of place, to go along with the relatively-recent Benny's, old stalwart Park Slope Barber, and a whole lot of less heralded places that have probably been there forever.

They're probably all needed, although it'll be interesting to seem how they divide up business. George's II has looked like a ghosttown every time I've walked by. It doesn't look like they're syphoning away from Benny's much on that end of 5th.

I went over the weekend and they have a nice operation. A cut and shave costs $15. The owner Nick was very nice and happy to have the business. The other guy gave me the cut and it was one of the best I've had in a while. I highly recommend.

When this place opened, I thought it was a welcome addition to a neighborhood lacking in good barber shop's. Then, on my third or fourth visit, the barber started telling me that he likes living in Brooklyn, apart from all the people black people - whom he referred to as "the monkey." He used this term repeatedly, said that black people brought drugs and trouble, even after I said I was offended by the way he was talking. The other barber made no attempt to remonstrate with him and neither of them apologized.

If you're ok with having your hair cut by people who make racist slurs while they're cutting, Nick's is for you. If you find that stuff offensive, STAY FAR AWAY

I'd like to update my comment from August re the racist barber shop.

When Nick came back, I told him my experience with the racist barber. Nick was incredibly apologetic and later fired the dude. I now go there regularly. Nick's a good barber and seemed genuinely upset about how things had gone.

I asked the Nick if he's ever cut "Asian" hair before and he insisted that he's done it plenty of times. Takes out a buzzer and almost made me bald. Had I not stopped him, I would be completely bald right now. If you want your head shaved off then come here. If you want quality hair style, don't go to this place.
