Barbers + booze = happy customers
Once upon a time, barbershops were just barbershops. Men (and women who prefer their hair short) pop in, get their haircut, and dash off. But now, the refinery of the craft is making a comeback, with most serving as more of a man cave than just a barbershop.
The retrospective art of gentlemen’s grooming has found its way back to the present. Now barbershops are normally fitted with something else to complete a man’s experience, be it a haberdashery, a lounge, or a place to shine their shoes. But what else allows them to unwind after a long day? Of course, a drink or two. With your choice of whisky, scotch, or beer, take a look at these 7 barbershops in Metro Manila that’ll serve you some alcohol on top of your slick hairstyle.
Hatless Harry – New Manila
“Bespoke Grooming for the Modern Man” is the simple statement that drives Hatless Harry to provide its unmistakeable brand of quality to all of its patrons. A personal, intimate, and premium experience awaits every customer that goes through their doors. To each his own at Hatless Harry, down to even your choice of drink: you can choose between some beer or whisky!
