Jimmy Rod's Barbershop

Play PS4 and sip beer while you wait for your trim.

Chances are, you've walked past a Jimmy Rod's Barbershop once or twice. There are ten in Brisbane alone, including this one in Broadway Mall, Westfield Chermside and the original in Oxley, which Jimmy Rod first opened in 2003. It's hard to pinpoint this success to one element. Of course, the stores have that sleek industrial feel, and the barbers know their craft well. But you can't ignore the little details like tasty snacks, complimentary coffee and beer, and a Playstation 4 to play while you wait. It's also pretty affordable for a traditional barbershop with men's cuts starting from $36.50 and beard trims from just $11.50. Meanwhile, cut-throat shaves start at $47.50 and the shop sells a broad range of aftercare products from Uppercut Deluxe, American Crew and Kingbrown Pomade. Hot tip: try to nab a midweek appointment as prices jump up on weekends.
