    At least the UK breeding ground.

    Overly expensive Italian espresso machine - check
    Biking leathers that are a fashion statement - check
    Barber shop internal to 'bike shop' - check
    Chesterfield sofa's - check
    In an overly pretentious part of town that was (and still is to an extent) dodgey as fuck - check

    I think that is probably the most hipster thing I've ever seen the UK, especially the fucking barber shop - can't wait to see the prices for a short back and sides.

    I can't lie. I would probably go there to pick up hipster chicks.

    The place looks interesting but also a little to uppity for me. Seems cool though for some.

    The barber shop reminds me of a small little western themed....old styled.....casino in Henderson Nevada called the Skyline casino. Really a cool little casino and walking thru there is an old fashioned styled barber shop by the front door.

    I already see the routine........ All the old geezers go to the diner with their wives for breakfast........then after the women go to the casino to spend their husbands pension checks and the old men go to the barber and get a trim and shoot the shit.......old school style. They don't have an old Indian motorcycle in the barber shop but maybe an Indian statue outside.

    Looks like their business model is working. Wonder if they want a northern branch

    Plus Nottingham is still the gun and crime capital of the U.K., so it would be more dodgier than fuck up here

    Did that once. Took a "café racer" down to a hipster bar. Never again.
