It used to be that the barbershop wasn't just a place to get a haircut or straight razor shave; it was the hub of the community – where people came together to bond, socialize and exchange ideas. With the goal of bringing this camaraderie back in style, The Social Club is a boutique barbershop that acts more like a membership club and boutique hotel. With its single location is Detroit The Social Club has created a concept that goes well beyond haircuts and straight razor shaves.
