Gentlemen alert: Now is your chance to get coiffed and groomed in an upscale boutique salon dedicated entirely with you in mind.
The Barbershop Lounge located on Boston's fashionable Newbury Street, offers a private gentlemen's club designed solely to fine men's grooming.
As soon as you walk into the lower level salon, you will be greeted by a friendly receptionist and offered complimentary soda, water or coffee. Come in and relax by the rear bar area with a magazine while waiting for your time to be called. Here you can relax, shoot a game of pool or catch the latest score on one of the many flat screen TVs that line the walls.
The interior of the space has a truly masculine feel with deep reds (be sure to check out the red velvet couch), black oversized leather chairs and exposed brick walls. The Barbershop Lounge offers its own line of products, including shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, pomade and lip balm, all of which are available for purchase.
The Barbershop Lounge offers a variety of services including a traditional haircut, color, facial hair grooming and of course, their famous hot towel old fashioned shave. This one comes complete with pre-shave oils and a rejuvenating hot lather shave.
Be sure to keep an eye out when you are in the salon as you never know who may sit down for a shave next to you. Red Sox players Jacoby Ellsbury and David Ortiz are regulars at the salon.
For the ultimate VIP package, sign up for a $495 membership of unlimited haircuts per year plus scalp massaging shampoo, conditioning treatment and beverage, and 10 percent off all services.
