You’ll think you’ve stepped into a time machine upon entering this shop (even though it opened in 2008): The old-fashioned decor, 1940s-era soundtrack and antique barber chairs seem fit for Humphrey Bogart. Choose from a traditional shave ($30) or an ultimate shave ($50), which comes with a mini-facial finale; both will continue to turn back the hands of time, making you look years younger. During or after your shave, the staff is on hand to teach you how to get baby-soft skin on your own (shave direction and product selection matters!). And for those who prefer a straight razor at home, they offer sharpening services ($30) regardless of the razor’s brand or age.
