Newport’s Very Own

Jose’s Chop Shop was founded in 2015 by Mike Micheletti and Master Barber, Jose Rios. Together they created a unique vision of bringing Newport, Rhode Island residents & visitors  traditional barbering services like no other. Our crew of carefully trained barbers maintains very close attention to detail in all aspects of the grooming experience. We cater to special event groups, as well as regular customers and spur of the moment walk-ins. We’re here to bring Rhode Island the best of the best in traditional men’s grooming services.

Probably thanks to our strong traditional values, business principles and the quality of our barbering services, we are definitely the number one classic barbershop for men in the Rhode Island area. We hope to offer you an adventure back in time, to the historical period when the traditional barbershop culture was still alive.
