COPENHAGEN: RUBEN AND BOBBY

On the tour we love nothing more than a challenge. And what could be more challenging than making a film while having a haircut, within the space of an hour? Copenhagen laid down the gauntlet and we, dear reader, picked it right up.



Ruben and Bobby is a tiny hairdresser-cum-retro-toy-shop, run by the perfectly geeky Bobby and patronised by cool guys from all over the city. Upon entering the place you’re transported 20 years into the past, with video games, consoles and plastic figurines lining every wall and filling any possible space. It’s his personal collection and his business – despite being a fully trained barnet stylist, Bobby is also what we’re calling a specialised antiques dealer. We were like kids in a candy shop, and he was a thoroughly nice chap, indulging all our questions and OMG moments. He’s knowledgable beyond belief about anything gaming and 1980s/90s, and is always on the lookout for new pieces – he’ll even trade haircuts for them sometimes! If you have anything you think he’d like, drop him a message here and find out. If nothing else you’re guaranteed a great conversation.
