Honoring Tradition...

When I decided to leave my gig as a tradesman to become a barber full-time I dreamed of owning my own place. Something that I can do my thing where people felt relaxed and were treated with respect. When I found Frank's Barber Shop it was clear that I had to honor his legacy, so we kept the name. He and I share the same respect for tradition and history. I may have added a bit of bourbon but the honor and respect for barbering remain. 

My promise to Frank and you, my customer: I'll always have good music playing, I'll always offer you a good drink, I'll always treat you with respect and give you great service. 

–Mat Bonnette, Owner
