In the days when strongmen ruled the earth, a mustache was considered both a blessing and a napkin. Praise and raise the handlebar with today's Groupon: for $47, you get a men's clipper haircut (a $25 value), hot shave (a $25 value), and 30-minute massage (an $45 value) at 379 Club (up to a $95 total value), located in Allston.
The follicle-savvy staff at 379 Club helps keep clients well kempt and ache-free through personal grooming and massage services in a welcoming, modernized facility. Visitors can treat natural head-hats to a seasonal shearing by an experienced barber, and then eliminate overstaying stubble with the hot, straight-razor close shave. After excess hair has been stylishly pruned away, a therapeutic massage employs dexterous hands to knead taut muscles into flexible forms––ideal for those recovering from a stressful workweek or leg-wrestling bouts with Shaquille O'Neal.
The warm wood floors, cream-colored walls, and exposed ceiling beams create a calming atmosphere where men can chill on plush leather couches and catch a game on one of the wide-screen TVs. Y-chromosome holders can find added entertainment with a pool table, dartboards, chessboards, or by playing "What power tool is hidden in my beard?"
Though the 379 Club sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon is still the best deal.
