About Bloke Barbers

Bloke was born in 2014, on the bottom floor of the historical 1879 Commerce Building. First used by the Otago Daily Times, before they grew too big, and eventually moved across the road to a larger facility.

Bloke is a blend of traditional Barbershop values and modern cutting techniques, in a man cave type setting, designed to make men & lads feel comfortable. Not a women’s magazine in sight or the slightest whiff of that eggy stuff that they put in ladies hair.
