Whistling Dick’s: A Traditional Barber Shop With A Modern Twist
This week I visited owners and founders John Parlow and Gregory Kahnert of Whistling Dick's Barber Shop in Old East Village. These two are not new to the entrepreneural lifestyle as you may recognize them for their involvment with The Pulp & Press Juice Co., Wood On Steel, and Hairpin Legs Canada.
Over the past few decades, London’s Old East Village has seen a massive amount of urban regeneration from breweries to boutique shops and so much more. But this time around, something a little different is popping up on the eastern Dundas stretch. Brought to you by local business aficionados, Greg Kahnert (WoodOnSteel and Hairpinlegs.ca) and John Parlow (Pulp n’ Press and Rebirth Wellness Centre), Whistling Dick’s Barber Shop is about to become the go-to hangout in OEV, whether you need a new ‘do or just want a drink.
