Restaurateurs Sam Buffa and Taavo Somer first came on the retail scene in 2006 with the opening of their apothecary-cum-haberdashery, Freeman's Sporting Club. The pair added a second location just a few years later, as well as the first F.S.C. Barber in 2008. Now, Buffa has opened this grooming and retail spot in a former Williamsburg garage. The offshoot will maintain the old-school F.S.C. vibe, featuring nine white-oak barber stations appointed with 1960s Belmont-style chairs. Walk-in services consist of haircuts ($40), buzz cuts ($20), straight-razor shaves ($40) and 20-minute Hangover Treatments ($25), which include a facial massage with tea-tree-oil–infused hot towels and a detoxifying mask. You can stock up on bath and body products, including Redecker bath brushes ($18), Uppercut pomade ($22) and Portland General Store whiskey aftershave ($16). The space also boasts a pop-up retail area with new brands rotating in every three months. First up is Malin & Goetz, showcasing its vitamin E shave creams ($8), peppermint body scrubs ($30) and grapefruit face cleansers ($30).
