‘I’ll have a coupe maison and for my hair, the same’. This might sound like something James Bond would say, but in fact this is actually a line you could use when you visit Coupe Maison.
The name says it all ‘Haircuts & Drinks’. You can go in for a new haircut, enjoy a drink at the bar and listen to Michael’s vinyl collection or both. A bar/hairdresser is nothing new, but the coziness and hospitality is what makes this place so unique. It’s like you’re relaxing in the living room with some friends and one happens to be a great hair dresser and the other makes delicious drinks and sounds.
On the menu you can find a fine selection of Belgian Beers, soda and fruity drinks… Going to the hairdresser has never been this relaxed. It’s like going to a bar. An on the hair menu you’ll find Label.M hair products from Toni & Guy (London, UK).
Tamara & Michael started Coupe Maison about a year ago. They were both looking for a new adventure to gain new experiences and learn new things. It was Tamara’s dream to have her own hair salon. After years of working as a hairdresser in Ghent, she wanted to work in a business the way she envisioned it to be.
Michael on the other hand always wanted to own a bar. In another life Michael is also DJ. You might bump into him during one of your nightly escapades. He has over 20 years of experience. He played at private parties, clubs and festivals. He used to play as DJ Chillax, but now he and his brother are known as The Blom Brothers. His love for music is clearly present in Coupe Maison. Have you noticed the records on the wall and his record player? Coupe Maison is in other words the perfect wedding of Tamara and Michael’s dreams, merged into a new concept.
But there is even more, Michael en Tamara also organize tastings, so you can learn a thing or two about wines, gins and beers. Music is also very important at Coupe Maison. Some weekends they organize ‘Vinylsounds’: a night where you can enjoy a drink and the smooth sounds of vinyl – the black gold. Feel free to bring your own favorite vinyl recors to listen to when you’re getting a haircut. The next Vinylsounds will take place on December 26th from 18.00 – 22.00. Don’t miss it!
So to sum it all up: Coupe maison offers you a drink for the tummy and a new coup to look yummy. Definitely worth your visit!
