CULVER CITY—In just a few weeks, New York's The Blind Barber will open an LA shop at 10797 Washington Blvd in Culver City. The concept: by day, it's an old-school barbershop where men can get cuts, trims and shaves and by night, it's a speakeasy-style cocktail den. Per our friends at Eater, the LA outpost just received its liquor license. [Blind Barber; Eater]
