Top hats, prepare to doff. Gentlemen’s Tonic provides rich and relaxing hair and grooming services to men in an upscale, masculine setting. The name refers to the strengthening and invigorating properties of tonic in a venue that caters exclusively to males, even though it was built by Houston’s only all-female construction team, Sisters with Earth-moving Power. The company began in London, where the male-grooming experts have received tons of press coverage. The Houston establishment, featured in Modern Luxury and the Houston Chronicle, is the first location in the United States of America.
This place is an oasis tailored to the needs of male professionals looking to take a constitutional away from his job winding watches for the Transatlantic Wire Service or inventing the electric bank. Today’s Groupon gets you one of two service combos at Gentlemen’s Tonic: a haircut and express hand treatment or a haircut and wet shave. The haircut in both packages includes shampoo and conditioning, a scalp massage, and cut. The express hand treatment refers to hand exfoliation, moisturization, and massage, while the wet shave is exactly what it sounds like: an immaculate facial-hair-removal-process-with-blade performed by Gentlemen’s Tonic’s male-grooming experts.
Gentlemen’s Tonic brings you more than just male grooming; they provide a uniquely masculine salon experience. The decor is wood, leather, and marble. Music consoles and LCD screens allow you to watch TV, access the Internet, and listen to CDs during your service, so you won’t miss any of the latest baseballing results or satirical piano rags. Gentlemen’s Tonic also provides complimentary drinks and a wide selection of newspapers and magazines (many with Men in the title).
Luxury services shouldn’t be limited to the fairer gender, or even to women. Treat yourself to the pampering you deserve. If you are a non-man, this deal makes a great gift for that man in your life.
One Yelper raves about Gentlemen’s Tonic: > * AMAZING… there are NO female clients at all. Has a nice, cool laid-back atmosphere. There’s no fuss or frills, and on top of everything the staff was INCREDIBLY skilled. – G H.
