Patsy’s Barber Shop

Styling the Capital Region Since 1930

Nestled in the heart of Downtown Albany stands the flagship Patsy’s Barber Shop. Just four blocks from the Capitol, stepping inside is like transporting back to a simpler time. With excellent service and an amazing atmosphere, you can still experience what it was like to get your haircut in the 1930s. The experience is only intensified as they continue to pay homage to their history with mahogany paneling, cut glass mirrors, white marble stations with rose marble trim, and brass fixtures. It’s a functioning barbershop museum that we are privileged to be the custodians of.

His great grandfather worked as a barber at Patsy’s from 1938-1942 and he continues the legacy of providing the best service to his customers. He keeps the time honored traditions of the shop alive by personally training each of the barbers who work there. Most mornings you can find him at his barber chair in the front window of the shop.

Stop in to say hello and ask for a story, he always has one to tell.
