West Park Barbershop Premier Lounge To Open on Tuesday, October 18

A soft opening is planned for an upscale barber shop created by Patrick Burke and the people behind the original West Park Barber Shop, which will remain open at 17008 Lorain Avenue. The new place, West Park Barber Shop Premier Lounge, is at 17134 Lorain Avenue, just nine doors west. The phone number of both will be 216-252-6666 for now. The new Premier Lounge takes clients by appointment only, whereas the other is strictly walk-ins. To reflect the higher level of service, cuts at the new place will run $20 to $35 rather than $9 to $19 at the established place. Look for an official grand opening in early spring. "Thank you to everyone who makes us Ohio's best," said Patrick Burke, owner of the West Park Barber Shop, West Park Beauty Salon, West Park Barber and Beauty Supply -- and now West Park Barber Shop Premier Lounge!
