Introducing Dapper Barber and Style Lounge

If you want en pointe styling and grooming advice you’ve come to the right place.
Dapper Barber and Style Lounge was born out of a passion that Niq James has for men’s grooming and fashion. A love of international travel highlighted a need for a space in the local fashion scene where men could relax in luxury surroundings and be assured that they would receive fashion grooming and styling advice that could hold its own on the global style scene. 
If you want to be Dapper, be our guest.

Having grown up around watches, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with them. Being a spatial design student and a freelance artist, it all came together nicely.
