DRIPPING SPRINGS, TX - January 27, 2011 - Don't be fooled by the name, the only need for sharp scissors at this barber shop is for cutting a grand opening ribbon. With a nod to its location's history, The Barber Shop, a new brewpub in downtown Dripping Springs, Texas, opens for business this weekend.
Owned and operated by long time Dripping Springs resident and competitive homebrewer John McIntosh III and his business partner Dave Niemeyer, the bar promises a local pub atmosphere with community-style tables, darts, a dedicated dominoes table, and big screen television for sports. The beer tap line-up features a heavy emphasis on the area's burgeoning community of microbrewers.
"Dripping Springs is just a stone's skip from brewers gaining national acclaim including Real Ale, Jester King, 512, and Thirsty Planet," notes McIntosh. "The Barber Shop was created to celebrate and support local and our selection definitely reflects that."
Wine drinkers will also be able to sip and eat local as The Barber Shop offers wine selections including hometown favorite Bell Springs Winery, and is working closely with The Goodnight Diner, located just a couple of blocks down. Chef Jana Muniz is not only creating a custom nut mix for snacking, but also a convenient takeaway bar menu with easy to order, walkable eats.
The Barber Shop's building started its life around November 1924 as a wooden and tin garage. In 1938 it was given its rock exterior and served as a garage and gas station until around 1960. After that, it was not used commercially for most of the next 25 years when it was then remodeled and turned into a barber shop.
"While Dripping Springs old timers may chuckle at calling this building 'the old barber shop,' that's what it was for the past quarter century and that's the sign that was still up when we took over," muses McIntosh. "Plus it had 'bar' in the name so we went with it."
Repurposing the bar's name and sign is in line with much of the building's revitalization which includes walls made from leftover tin from a friend's barn and a bar built from wood salvaged from a family member's home remodel. Décor includes garage memorabilia and dozens of decades old beer cans that revealed themselves during the remodel.
"We feel fortunate to be in such a unique location and we're keen to maintain a sense of history and community," says McIntosh, a University of Texas graduate who also studied at Oxford where he acquired his appreciation for the local pub. "The Barber Shop warmly welcomes all, but if your family was around when the building was first built, you get dibs on the dominoes table."
The Barber Shop is located at 207 Mercer Street, Dripping Springs. Hours:
Wednesday and Thursday: 3pm-10pm
Saturday: 11am - 12am
Sunday: 12pm - 7pm
