Jimmy Figg’s Bare-Knuckled Barber in Newcastle

It happens all the time; things that were once great go out of fashion. But the good things come back: Vinyl, film cameras, acid wash denim, and of course, old fashioned barbers. Well, at least in Newcastle. Jimmy Figg’s Bare-Knuckle Barber is the place to go for a traditional shave or haircut. And at a modest price, why wouldn’t you?

Along with the obviously good service, it’s the extra things like enjoying a beer or just having a chat that make Jimmy Figg’s a welcome new addition to the inner city. Oh, and did we mention they’re hoping to start poker nights?
