True to our roots

At one time, Indiana Avenue was home to one of the busiest jazz scenes in America, and one of its most famous clubs was George’s Bar & Orchid Room. Word has it George renamed the club The Black Orchid when he moved to a new location.

When we set up shop on Indiana Avenue, we took our name from George’s club, and our inspiration from the neighborhood’s creative legacy. Just like jazz, Black Orchid Barbers builds on what came before to create something original.

Here you’ll find the perfect blend of classic and contemporary. Our barbers take pride in their craft, and take the time to give every client the perfect cut. Fashions change and looks evolve, but quality service never goes out of style.


When you first walk through the door, you’ll see you’re someplace special.


You’ll notice that good music and good conversation fill the air.


We want you to feel comfortable while you’re here – and like a million bucks when you leave.


Style is individual.

 The desire for a place where you can go to kick back, relax,
and chew the the fat with friends and strangers – that’s universal.
