About Cook Street Barbershop Building

The Barbers at Cook Street Barbershop welcome you to our brand new shop and new location in the JukeBox on 110-1029 View St.

A Victoria go-to barbershop that has been in business alefor over 60 years.

Collectively our barbers have more than 100 years of experience behind the chair. We pride ourselves in keeping up with the latest trends and styles while still maintaining that old school barbershop charm.

No matter which chair you sit in you’ll get a consistently great cut. Our ability to discern the needs of our vast range of customers keeps our loyal clients coming back.

Trends come and go but great craftsmanship in the art of barbering never goes out of style.

About Us Cook Street BarbershopThe genuine conversation and lively barbershop talk as a whole will have you feeling comfortable if you have to sit for a bit. Don’t worry the wait won’t be long. We have more than enough space to keep you safe and comfortable within the current health and safety regulations.

Don’t be afraid to ask to turn up the tunes or request your favourite song. Our sound system rocks and our playlists will have you reminiscing of days gone by or Rolf’s eclectic worldly music will have you swaying in your chair. A little barbershop toe tapping never hurt anyone .

Our team brings a multicultural vibe into the Cook Street Barbershop, which includes the following:

Rolf, the owner, from Bern Switzerland, moved here to Canada the first time in ‘78. He took over the Cook Street Barbershop back in 2015. If you look around the new shop you can see little bits and pieces of Rolf’s life - truly an amazing life story he has to share. This man of many talents has been making people walk a little taller after sitting in his chair since picking up the scissors and clippers in the early 90’s.
