About the author
The vodka in my Bloody Mary. My appetizer, main course and dessert. My safe haven, the sunshine at my festivals and the home in homesick. The city that I know so well but love to get lost in.

Yes, Bubblekid is the best hairdresser in the city. Yes, they serve the best coffee (and wine if you’re lucky). And yes, they organize parties, have an art gallery and host pop-up dinners. And now they have their own shop where you can match your freshly cut hair with a new outfit from Things I Like Things I Love, or find that one piece of vintage furniture you were always looking for, and design your own fixie to ride home with.

Every two weeks a new batch of clothing comes in and gets filtered down by the Bubblekid staff. Whatever doesn’t match their style, won’t get sold. At least, not in theír shop. Nova (co-founder) scours flea markets, retirement homes, and her friends’ grandparents houses for furniture, vintage fashion and other curiosities that fit the Bubblekid profile. Legacy Bikes build fixie bikes in their workshop attached to the shop. Whether you want your bike fixed or customize your own, their in-store bike builder will make it happen.

The brands that are sold range from Fresh Cotton, Bare Minimum, Bad Habits, to Boardz Enzo and their own hair jewelry brand, One of a Kindness. All products have one thing in common: they’re Bubblekid-certified. So if you like these people and their style as much as I do, you’ll be sure to find something that exactly fits your style.

You could easily spend your days here without ever getting your hair cut

Bubblekid believes in its own bubble, fascinated by the creator god of the Mayas, Itzamna, who didn’t want to have anything to do with destruction or sacrifice and was associated with creation to improve people’s lives. And this is exactly what you feel when you enter their shop: a bubble of positivity, mindfulness, and above all, a lot of fun. You could easily spend your days here without ever getting your hair cut, or buying anything. Just chatting around and hanging out.

Bubblekid’s coffee comes from Cafés Meke, a couple of guys from New Zealand that have their coffee beans burned on Ibiza. Drinks are not for sale. That is, they are provided based on gifts. You’ll pay whatever you find suitable for your cup. Money, clothes, or even singing lessons. Bubblekid is up for anything.
