Some things have a singular, unique appeal—a good shave and a good cocktail are two such things. Barber & Booze in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico, has capitalized on the lure of these two things by offering them both in one location.


And that’s not to say clients can merely have a beer with their haircut; Barber & Booze has a customized list of signature cocktails available, including the Sweeney Todd for vodka connoisseurs, barber negroni for gin-lovers, hot mustache if tequila is the poison of choice and more.


This certainly doesn’t mean that barbering services and techniques aren’t of the utmost importance at Barber & Booze. The service menu covers a full range from straight-razor shaves, skin and facial treatments, and, of course, haircuts. If the old hair-of-the-dog adage doesn’t help with the previous evening’s tequila escapades, a hangover rescue eye treatment can help freshen up clients with Repêchage’s Opti-Firm Eye Contour Treatment.


“The art of cutting or styling hair is undoubtedly one of the oldest in the history of mankind,” says Yolanda Amador, spa consultant, co-owner of Barber & Booze and Repêchage Mexico distributor. “Taking this framework and a new eclectic fusion of contemporary architecture, we decided to bring back this profession to create an unparalleled space within the romantic area of Puerto Vallarta with a full-service barbershop and a full-service bar.”

Maggie Mulhern | December 7, 2016

Kasey Rials ( from House of Color Hair Studio, Colorado Springs, Colorado, says "My client came in with a really grown out ombré and wanted to try out some deeper, rich tones for fall and winter. After combing through her hair I came to the conclusion that we should not use any lightener on it, as her hair is very curly and fragile."
