This old school barbershop in the heartlands gained popularity after a Facebook Post by Singapore's Minister of Defence. The shop was initially known as Abu Nawas Barber Shop and was started by Mr Abdul Latiff Mohammad Fahmi in Paya Lebar in the early 1960s. Neighborhood kids painted a huge Bugs Bunny on the exterior walls and since then, the name stuck to the shop all the way to its move to its present premise. This is the place to be for a regular hair cut and trim, with a whole load of nostalgia added to the mix. The eclectic decor is also appealing enough to have you visit time and time again.
