Barber shop, furniture restoration studio, Hawaiian-inspired cafe coming to Carmel City Center this summer


Three new businesses will join Carmel City Center this summer: Magic Hat Barber Shop, 317Home and Manelé Café.

Magic Hat Barber Shop will offer haircuts and shaves as guests enjoy complimentary beverages at 885 Monon Green Blvd. Suite 101. It will also offer grooming products, fragrances and gifts.

“Barber shops are important for communities and Carmel City Center has areas built-in that bring communities together,” stated Justin Virgil Gramelspacher, owner of Magic Hat Barber Shop. “I felt (Carmel City Center) embodies the thoughtful growth that is occurring in Carmel, Hamilton County, and Indy at large. I love that it’s right off the Monon Trail, which I think is a gem.”

Barber shop hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Furniture restoration and workshop studio 317Home will open at 715 Hanover Place, Suite 140. It features the exclusive Annie Sloan brand and will sell its products in addition to selling restored furniture using them.

317Home will offer classes for guests to learn decoupage, molding, transfer and other furniture restoration techniques.

“The furniture will be painted in front of everyone, and it’s always fun to see a painted project coming together,” 317Home owner Rebecca Null stated.

The shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Manelé Café will serve Hawaiian-inspired fare in its 75-seat dining room and covered patio at 703 Veterans Way. It will feature salads and customizable bowls served warm or cold. It will also have a counter to order coffee, smoothies and snacks.

The cafe is owned by Craig Barnum, who also owns Carmel City Center restaurants Matt the Miller’s Tavern and Tucci’s Italian restaurant, which is set to open this spring.

The cafe will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
