Inside Strap and Scraper London

What’s new at Strap and Scraper London Barbershop

Since we opened our barbershop doors on Cheshire street (Just off Brick Lane) just under one year ago, we have built up our brand priding ourselves on our quality of work. Our ethos has always been a simple one listen to clients and work with them to achieve a better result rather then the get what your given approach. Consultations have been the foundation in helping us achieve our fantastic reputation and is something we always make sure we get right. Our last addition to the Scrap Book was a while back and during that time we have found a lot more of a our favourites:

(In no particular order)

Coffee spots

Hair cuts

Beards

Boozers.

Where Else?

If you read our Shoreditch Hotspots post you would have seen some of our favourite places within close proximity of our barbershop. However we have cut a little more, styled a little more and explored a little more since then. It is safe to say we have found some new East London gems. We have added Holy Shot to our selection of coffee shops. Located on Bethnal Green Road it does fantastic coffee with plenty of options and the pastries are pretty damn good too.

We have had a huge variation of cuts and beards to style and shape. If you follow our Instagram you’ll know all about that. We have been getting a lot of textured short cropped cuts as of late and we are loving it.

As far as boozers go. We spend some of our time in our local, The Carpenters Arms. We did attend the Craft Beer Rising festival which took place at the Truman Brewery from the 22nd-24th of February.  A great event with craft beer from all over the U.K. and amazing street food to keep the party going.

As you can see we have had some busy months. Our Youtube channel kicks off this month and our Academy courses begin in April so it’s only going to get busier. Stay tuned to hear more about our updates.

Sincerely, your local Shoreditch barbers.

The Music #StrappedIn

At Strap and Scraper we are always on the look out for great tunes to add to our collection. Our forever evolving playlist is always on the hunt for new bands and artists for our Spotify. Lucky for us being located in Brick Lane there is always an event or gig right around the corner for us to check out new music, new beer and good times. When you walk through our doors for one of our fine sprucing sessions you will hear the likes of Tom Grennan, Raleigh Ritchie, Maverick Sabre, Jordan Max, Tom Walker  The Sha La La’s and plenty old school soul and R’n’B.

Our New Music Finds

Over the past month or two we found music that may not necessarily be new, but it is new to us and  ever since we have thrown them onto our playlist we always get asked ‘Who is this,’ or ‘Can you play that song again so I can shazam it.’ 😀

Our new additions:

Violets, especially their tune When The Lights Go Down if you don’t know check it out!

Upcoming Music Gig at The George Tavern on Commercial Road.

So Saturday the 18th of November a good client and friend of our barbershop is running an event at the George Tavern on Commercial road. Live music,  soul tunes, indie tunes, good beer and a great little boozer. Not to mention one of our playlist faves the Sha La La’s are performing! This event just screams Strap and Scraper London so we will most certainly be attending this one! Located just around the corner from us at Brick Lane we can swing by after a full day of Sprucing up the fine people of London.

If our style of music sounds right up your street, swing by this Saturday. Tickets only costing 5 pounds AND you can purchase on the night. Seems like a steal!

If you have any recomendations for our playlist please do let us know.  If you are an artist with with a style that matches our Strap and Scraper London barbershop track list we would also love to hear from you. Just drop us an e-mail which you will find on our contact page of our website.
