Patrons sip from glasses of beer and sake martinis while waiting to get haircuts and six-towel straight-razor face shaves. But at minibar.ber.shop, waiting for a barber appointment doesn't mean flipping through last October's issue of Hockey Pucks! magazine. It means sampling more than a dozen beers, listening to music, and sinking teeth into prosciutto-brie paninis. In the VIP room, clients kick back for hot-towel shaves and soothing facials with an arsenal of entertainment devices at their disposal: a 42-inch HDTV, streaming internet radio, and four regular walls—the 19th century equivalent of TV. The barbershop's playful signature services reflect its ethos, including its moustache trim—dubbed the geraldo—and its beard trim known as the zz top.
