You can now get a cut and a cone at the corner of Altamont Avenue and Boulevard in Scott’s Addition.
The 1,600-square-foot space is a second location for High Point, which co-owner and barber David Foster said will help with overflow at its other shop at 112 N. Meadow St.
That outpost, which opened in 2014, is regularly booked up to six weeks in advance. The new shop houses eight barber’s chairs, one of which will be dedicated to walk-ins and same-day appointments to help alleviate wait times.
High Point’s Fan location and its five barber’s chairs will remain open.
Campfire and Co. designed High Point’s new space, with RIC Design Build as the contractor. Josh Bruce, a local carpenter, did custom millwork for High Point. Archingen’s PermitZip did the mechanical, electrical and plumbing permit drawings.
A community counter area in the back will serve Lamplighter coffee, which previously has produced a custom roast for the barber shop. Foster said the barbershop is working to craft an exclusive root beer with The Veil Brewing Co. to be served at the two locations.
UrbanCore Development and Duke Dodson of Dodson Property Management redeveloped the ARC building. One retail space remains available on the ground floor, while the upstairs is being converted into apartments.
