Scissors and Scotch, a combination men’s barbershop and cocktail bar out of Nebraska, is opening its first Austin location this fall. It will head to the Lantana Place development at 7415 Southwest Parkway.
Scissors and Scotch has a full bar, serving classic drinks like an Old Fashioned, martini, and Bloody Mary. It will also have selections from Austin breweries and distilleries, and there are plans for events like liquor tastings and tap takeovers. The bar and lounge is open to anyone, and patrons get a free drink with every service. No food is planned.
Scissors and Scotch was started by three friends (Erik Anderson, Tanner Wiles and Sean Finley) and opened in 2015 in Omaha. After beginning a franchise in 2017, it now has six shops in five states. This is the first of several shops the team plans to open around the Austin area. The company offers memberships to pay for spa services like waxing, barbering, or haircuts on a schedule.
The Lantana Place development is already home to restaurant and movie theater Moviehouse and Eatery, with Carve, a casual new grill from Perry’s, coming in the summer.
