At the intersection of modern, young aesthetics — think skinny jeans and plaid shirts — and an old-school shave-and-haircut shop, you’ll find The Duke Barber Co. This hip but homey space specializes in particular brand of grooming, politely described as “straight-razor shaving, precision cutting and awesomeness.” With a coat of arms for a logo, The Duke is housed in an L-shaped space containing a row of barber chairs and a comfy, dark-leather waiting area that looks out upon the expanse of Northern Liberties’ Piazza. Wares for sale include classic chess sets, shaving supplies and stainless-steel flasks. You might want to wait until the end of the week to make your appointment, when Whiskey Fridays beckon all those looking for a weekend kickstart to combine with a fresh new look.
