Chez Ménick, one of those iconic spots

Radio-Canada talks to Dominique Perrazino, the man behind Chez Ménick, currently closed. Some may be puzzled by the description of the barbershop as being “emblématique du coin” in the Plateau, since it’s possible to live in the Plateau for years and never set eyes on it, but this is because Chez Ménick is on the little spur of Masson Street between Papineau and the tracks where one doesn’t tend to stroll without a reason. I did some work for a studio in the old Cadbury building, or I’d never have seen it either.

One thing the Radio-Canada photos don’t show is how the barbershop’s floor is painted to look like a hockey rink, too.
