WESTFIELD, NJ—Kennedy's All-American Barber Club celebrated its grand opening today with food and drink from Ferraro's, a magician for kids and a free raffle for prizes, memberships and Kennedy’s signature products.
Services including haircuts for men and boys, straight-razor shaves with hot towels, “MANicures” and hair color maintenance are available here to members and non-members, but Kennedy’s is much more than an old-fashioned salon.
“It’s barbershop meets country club,” explained Owner and Franchisee Dainia Oren. “It’s a great place for men to come and network.”
Basic memberships include unlimited signature haircuts, a complimentary beverage during visits and access for themselves and their guests to the club behind the barbershop, where members can play a game of pool, sit at the BYO bar and munch snacks, watch their favorite sports teams on TV and play cards in the card room.
More elaborate memberships include additional services, such as unlimited haircuts for your children, mini-facials and shoeshines.
The club, which opened at the end of December, gained its 150th member today.
“We’ve been really well received so far by Westfield,” said Oren. Many members learned about the club from friends.
“We want to thank them for that,” said Oren. “It’s really great. We really appreciate the word-of-mouth business we’ve been getting, and we’re going to continue to provide great service.”
Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club is located at 226C North Avenue West, Westfield, NJ. For appointments, call 908-233-0360. Walk-ins welcome.
