Was looking for a new barber when I stumbled upon this place, and I'm glad I did. Brittany did an excellent job with my haircut, I got a skin fade with a hard part and comb over. She was also very friendly, and a great conversationalist. Price was on par with other good barber shops I've been to. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a good haircut. Bonus Tip: if you get Brittany as your barber, and you want to get a laugh in, ask her about her ice cream preferences.

I have been getting my hair cut here for years now. On the rare occasion I have to get my hair cut anywhere else, I always regret it! Brittany is fantastic and so are the rest of her team. I highly recommend Beatnik!

Connor Elias Way

Great place. See Lance.

Quickest barber in Mt Vernon. Stop going there when I do people, Google tells me you are all reading this. I go stand out side 5 minutes before they open. Or is it 10min? I'm not telling you, there was 2 other dudes there early last week 6.6.18

Was here this last weekend (5/18/19) and got a haircut with Rich (long hair, wore a Carhart beanie). Asked for a high fade with the top being finger width length on top. When he finished I asked twice for him to bring the fade up higher because the fade was way too low (asked for a HIGH fade), he didnt listen and just ended the haircut. The sides were at least a half inch longer than the hair on the top. 2nd worst haircut I've ever received. Had to go somewhere else on sunday because I looked like Frankenstein. Halfway through the haircut he knew someone who walked in the door. Basically rushed the haircut from that point on; so I have a feeling he just rushed the cut to get to the next person. Will never let him touch my hair again since the total cost to get a haircut that weekend was $55

Fantastic skill and friendly barber.


Aboon Malhotra

I was very hesitant to try and find a new barbershop in Baltimore after moving here. I let my hair grow out, but ultimately followed my friend's requests to visit Beatnik because of its location, affordability, and helpful and knowledgeable staff. Richard is my go-to barber, but if for some reason he is unavailable, I have the utmost trust in everyone at Beatnik, something I can honestly say I haven't felt at other barber shops. Its very easy to see why they earned so many awards in the past, as they continue to do tremendous work.

Trevor Soule

Mark Valle

Absolutely love this place. Small but intimate barbershop. A barber named Lance has been cutting my hair since 2013 and is the best when giving me a fade and a shapeup. There's only a few that I trust with my hair but Lance is definitely my go-to guy and has never disappointed me.

Omar Abarca

They are just okay. The two times I have been here, I got the same girl. Not really my type of place but music was fine. They just do whatever they want to your hair despite your request. Prices are juat fine and hairdressers a bit annoying. Terrible!

Manny Ruiz

This is my go to Barber shop in the city. Chill vibes nicest genuine barbers. Very local and affordable... They always have the best music playing

Rosemary Asquino

A real haircut, no judgement, $18.

Joaquín Ortega

Really cool place. Great haircut. Thx!

Jonathan Jacobs

needed a last minute haircut. my brother goes here and recommended it. wandered in for a walk-in. got a great cut right away! i totally recommend it to others looking for a cut!

Andrew Hazlett

Maximum quality cut for the minimum price price. Great poster art on the walls too.

Bo P

Colin Freas

Laid back spot to get a cut by some great barbers. It's got the best bits of an old school barber shop with a good dose of new school cool. Pete who runs the place is a highlight, but anyone there will get you a great do. Quick & reasonably priced; great central location in Mt. Vernon; (metered) street parking has always been available despite the Mt. Vernon location.

Jeffrey Beans

Beatnik was great. I have been looking for a consistent cut since I left home a bunch of years ago. I think that I found it here.

Tobias Haller

Very happy with my first visit! Great little place; I'll be back!

Rachel Englander

Dan Morrison

I love this place. Been coming for years when it was under previous management and obviously stayed a loyal customer. Occasionally I have to go somewhere else to get a cut and it's never as good as here. Brittany is the best!!!!


Very nice ambience and one of the best haircuts I've ever had--all for only $18. Highly recommended.

Tyler Jensen

Awesome barber shop. They made me feel me at home. Their hair cuts and beard trim are amazing. Recommended.

Ve Green

I had a really crappy haircut from another place. I went in there and was initially intimidated because I was the only black person there and there was a bit of a wait. I was in and out of there within 40 minutes and there were at least 5 people in front me. Jay was able to take the poor haircut I had gotten previously and make it into the best haircut I have ever had. He listened to everything I wanted and was able to give me that and more. He was amazing. Before it was my turn, I watched the other barbers cut other customers' hair and all of their haircuts were nicely done. All the barbers are quick, precise, and personable. They also shave your neck with warm shaving cream and a single blade razor which was a really nice touch.

Mark Souder

Will always go there

Liam Kaplan

Tarek Zughaib

Felipe Massa

Mark Wieske

Good barber.

Gabriel S

Friendly and courteous staff.

Clayton Summit

Great haircut. They did exactly what I asked and did it quick. Haircut and a beard trim, $24. Rich even ran after me when I left work without my sunglasses.


Cory Espinosa

No-nonsense haircut with great staff!


Good haircut, cheap. Can walk in. Had to wait about 5 minutes, no big deal.

Robert Abad

Great barbers with the best prices around.

Matt Post

Friendly, competent, fairly priced.

James Webb

Very plane, but got a great haircut.

James Mickelinc

When I went two of the "barbers" were actually cosmotologists and therefore weren't licensed to edge up my haircut with a straight edge razor. They both work in this barbershop but can't do a basic undercut very well. The fade one gave me is poor and the changes in length aren't level on either side of my head. She finished in less than 20 minutes but I think that's because she didn't know where to go with it and how to get the details right. Really nice people and I feel bad leaving a poor review but this is not a place for men to get their hair cut.

Heidi Loeb

Jimmy Brokaw

A real gem of the community. Grab some coffee and chat with neighbors, while getting treated better than most barbers. Never had a bad cut here, nor have I left with anything but a smile.


I’m always hesitant to try a new place to get a haircut. After having been there a few times, Rich always does a good job and is consistent. The price is reasonable.

Daniel Mclellan

I have been here for years. The service has always been great, I HIGHLY recommend it!!!

Ray Casavant

Love Lance, he always does a great job..

Nick Clyde

My favorite barbershop in Baltimore. All of the barbers are friendly and good at what they do. I've never gotten a haircut I didn't like at this place. They also go the extra mile and give you a neck shave at the end, which feels nice. The shop is decorated nicely, too. The wait can get long at peak times, so if you can try to go during the week. But they are well worth the wait if you can't!

Corey Schuler

Pete and crew are the best for men's haircuts in Bmore. Don't forget to get the hot lather neck shave!

Kevin Contrera

Pete cuts hair like a boss

Michael Stone

Good haircuts and reasonably priced, never waited for less than half an hour though.

Sy Saulynas

Kevin Morris

Excellent haircuts for a good price

Joseph Romano


Your average neighborhood barbershop, nothing to brag about.

Zane Baker

My favorite barbershop for the last 10+ years

Jason Levy

Had to get my hair fixed after this haircut. Barber wouldn't stop talking trash about his Hampden neighbors

Gavon Peck

Friendly staff; affordable, quality cuts.

Brian Bond

Stopped in for the first time the other day and got a great haircut. Ashleigh did a great job and we had a nice conversation. If she is available I would recommend her as a barber(barbette?) if you don’t already have a preference. Compared to some other shops that charge $50+ and require appointments, I got a cut as a walk in for $18 plus tip. They are also in a great location with a small coffeeshop/bakery right next door. I will definitely be coming back soon.

andrew heiliger

Very disappointed in the results. Ended up having to get it cleaned up somewhere else. I won’t be back.

Bruce M

Good cuts, friendly crew, waits usually brief. Cost $18.

Brooks Rubin

Dante Fields

Great cut, very quick and neat and a surprisingly short wait for how busy they were.

John Butz

Always a wait when I end up coming in regardless of the day; typically 3-4 people. No complaints on the haircut, done just as I asked. Good to have a little more than the usual awkward hair cut banter too.

Krissi Love

Feras Mossa-Basha

Where I go for haircuts. TBH the best haircuts I've had and for less than $20! Cool, friendly people work here which is a big added plus. There is often a wait

patrick Dutterer

Will Schanno

So after I decided to grow up and get a real haircut, I began to check out different barber shops around Baltimore and Annapolis. This is the place to go. I've had both of the girls twice, and it was a rock star job both times. The neck shave is awesome and it's a cool atmosphere.


Nick Stiles

Great clean cut at an affordable price. The people were really friendly and helpful in helping me determine the best look for me.

Michael Chester

Matthew Horton

Victor Kunst

Now here is a great place! This was my third visit for a haircut and as usual, got a great cut. Go early because they are usually busy midday. The barbers are great, friendly, and really try to get to know you. They share their life with you and in this impersonal world, it is a delight to go there.

Eddie Imada

Never had a bad haircut in here. The staff are polite and the price is ok.

Darren Samson

gary grimmette

Rico Moody

Place is great with my hair. Fades are on point and it’s affordable. Parking is on the street, but I’ve never had a problem parking right in front. I have been to every barber in there and I always walk out happy. The only place I’ll go and I live 30 mins away!

Owen Henry

Lance and I had a great discussion about the intersection of white poverty, drug use, and the need to invest in rural counties. And he gave me a slick haircut to boot.

Nice place and fair price. Kasey was awesome with me and she did a great job. I sent a pic to my girlfriend and she said “It’s like a new person”. Approved :D

Greg Schuster

Stanley Bright

This shop is amazing! Five stars is not enough! Warm, friendly, fast and efficient. It's hard for me to get to because of my schedule but I get my best hair cut there.
