Brooklyn native John Scala brings his 15 years of men’s grooming experience to Midtown East with a second location of this old-school barbershop (the first is in Nolita). The masculine space mimics the tonsorial parlors of the early 1900s, with two antique barber chairs, crystal chandeliers and mosaic tile floors. Dudes can walk in for a 30-minute straight-razor shave ($45), which includes a sideburn trim. You can also grab a standard haircut ($33), head shave ($30) or a clay-mask facial treatment ($15). Mahogany wood display tables are stocked with synthetic-free house-brand products, including shaving brushes ($35–$120), creams ($12–$18) and stainless-steel straight razors ($110).
