BIRD SCOOTERS FLY INTO BUCKHEAD
Residents now have a new rideshare option, thanks to the arrival of Bird scooters. The electric vehicles have roosted all around Buckhead, and users can rent one using the Bird smartphone app. The scooters provide a unique and fun, not to mention more energy-efficient, way to traverse Buckhead’s busy streets. They reach a maximum speed of 15 mph and can travel approximately 15 miles on a single charge. Riders must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license, and a helmet is required (Bird provides free helmets on request through the app, but they must be mailed to users and cost $1 for shipping). It costs $1 to open a rental session, and you’re charged 15 cents for every minute of use.
CLASSIC BARBERSHOP OPENS BUCKHEAD LOCATION
After operating in Sandy Springs for the last eight years, Gino’s Classic Barber Shoppe has now opened a second location in Buckhead. Located in the Monarch Tower office building across from Lenox Square, the shop offers haircuts and old-fashioned straight razor shaves by master barbers. Located within walking distance of numerous offices and residences, the new shop is owned by Gino Teyf, a native of Belarus who has practiced classic barbering techniques for more than 30 years.

LOCAL VENUE BIDS FAREWELL
A mainstay with many area business professionals and residents, the City Club of Buckhead unexpectedly closed its doors a few months ago. Since its opening in 2008, the members-only club was a popular spot where dozens of business deals were brokered and was the site of countless events, from wine dinners to the regular Thursday morning meetings of the Buckhead Business Association. It’s certainly the end of an era.
