News Briefs

California-based Get a Haircut, a men’s barber shop that combines classic haircuts with classic rock n’ roll, is now open at The Promenade at Juhl, the 20,000-square-foot ground-level retail component at Juhl, a 344-residence, multibuilding community that spans an entire city block in downtown Las Vegas. The Promenade at Juhl opened in November.

“We are delighted to welcome Get a Haircut to Las Vegas and The Promenade at Juhl,” said Uri Vaknin, a partner at KRE Capital LLC, whose company, in partnership with Dune Real Estate Partners, purchased Juhl in 2013 as DK Las Vegas. “This is a fun, hip place that has done very well in California, and we expect it to be equally popular here. While downtown Las Vegas has great beauty lounges like Bombshell, Get a Haircut fills a void by bringing a quality and reputable men’s hair salon to the area. Now all the attorneys and other professionals who work in the area have a great place to get their hair cut.”

The Corner Market, a community convenience store, is planned to open in the high-rise later this year.
