The mystery of The Blind Barber, a 1934 whodunnit by John Dickson Carr, concerns a collection of valuable straight razors gone missing. The mystery of The Blind Barber, a hair-cuttery/drinking hole that replaced Plan B (and is run by a consortium that includes Ella owner Josh Boyd), could prove to be something else entirely. The nightly crowds of partygoers in the back lounge, mixing so hard themselves they hardly notice the bar's specialty mixed drinks—like a Smoke + Dagger, with JD whiskey, Ancho Reyes Verde, cucumber, lemon, and soda for instance—don't seem above shenanigans. The DJ-boosted energy level contrasts with a staid design of scuffed-up mirrors, black-leather booths and cream wallpaper dotted with delicate filigree. In the far back is a tiny room stuffed with sofas for getting your old person on. During the day, the action happens in two chairs in the front shop. Local barbers maneuver around spindly medical trays, giving spindly East Villagers $55 cuts and $30 trims. The price includes a free drink, but it's advisable, obviously, not to request your barber to do a shot with you.
