The cafe-salon concept isn’t foreign to Adam Hadley-Darrie. Before Archie & Co, he co-owned DAS.Hair and SAD Cafe, next door to one another in Ebenezer Place.

Hadley-Darrie took what he learned there to open Archie & Co with partner Paul Engelhardt. It’s named after their six-year-old Pug-Jack Russell cross.

The women’s and men’s salon is run by Hadley-Darrie, who has 17 years’ of experience. Next door, you’ll find Engelhardt serving bagels and pulling shots of espresso using Dawn Patrol beans, supplied by Hadley-Darrie’s old business partners.

Engelhardt created the store’s branding, which is clean and playful. See: the cacti-motif business cards that sit on the counter.

Footpath seating means you can enjoy the street-side view over a bagel and coffee while friends have their locks tended to. Visit on the right day and you might see Archie, too.
