Three Generations

As a profesional barber it is about the community we work in and our clients that live there.  On many occasions we have had discussions about how cool it is to have father/son combinations in the chairs at the same time.  This is a rare opportunity when we were lucky enough to have 3 generations... mtb

We were lucky enough to be visited by a photographer from San Diego last week.  He contacted us because he is working on putting together a book of stand alone barber shops across the USA.  Sounded mello enough to us until we saw his artillery of cameras, flashes and gear and we got the feeling this would be a project we wanted to be a part of... mtb

The Votes Have Been Counted

Since buying the shop four years ago, owner Mike Swenson,

along with head barber Scott Young, have carried on the

tradition local clients have been enjoying at this location since

1963. “We are not trying to reinvent the wheel here, but instead

deliver a classic American barbershop experience including

razor-sharp haircuts and hot towel shaves,” said Swenson. —AS

Winter Festival and Kings Club Holiday Party 2010

This winter has us wrapping up 2010 with a lot of holiday cheer at the Kings Club Barber Shop. We kicked off our Canned Food Drive with our Annual Holiday Party last Saturday. It was quite a hoot. We welcomed back our favorite barbershop quartet The Harmony Partners and Scotty relinquished beverage duties to our favorite bartender "Taxidermy Craig". While the Embassy Room was serving up the holiday cheer, Boston was recruiting votes for his run for City Council and I hear there was a Gary Larson sighting. Speaking of City Counsil the Mayor of Dana Point dropped in on his way to flipping the switch for the Tree Lighting Ceremony and all was well.
To those that stopped by and brought gifts for the Canned Food Drive and for the Barber Shop, Thank you. It has been an unbelievable year and we appreciate your support... mtb
