Ella owner Joshua Boyd has teamed up with Adam Kirsch and Jeff Laub (a former manager at Ted Gibson Salon) to open this dual-purpose hair salon and lounge. In the front, an old-timey barbershop provides cuts and shaves for men; a back area is decorated with couches and a bar that serves thematically appropriate cocktails, like the Sweeney Todd (Jameson, lemon juice, honey syrup, grenadineand egg white). If you're hungry, nearby Italian restaurant Gnocco will deliver its Roman-style pizza.

This barbershop is unlike any I have ever been to in my years. Not only can you come in for a trim and a shave,you can also enjoy an adult beverage in the back. This speakeasy is just behind the back door within the barbershop. I have yet to come here for a haircut, however I have been here a few times to enjoy the bar. The drinks are nice and cold, the decor is welcoming, with plenty of seating in the back and a smaller intimate area even further back. I've been to a couple of these speakeasy establishments, and when I'm in this area, I always remember to come here.
They did a great job on my hair and beard. I actually had fun and the improved groomed look got noticed. Now nobody else but the Blind Barber.
