Modern males have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day, almost all of which revolve around whether a barbershop pole is peppermint or spearmint flavored. Seek answers from the source with today's Groupon: for $32, you get an old-fashioned blade shave (a $42 value) and stimulating scalp massage (a $22 value) at Old South Barber Spa (a $64 total value).
Belying its moniker, Old South Barber Spa is a modern facility where the charms and amenities of an old-fahioned Southern men’s club are ladled into a historic home’s luxurious confines. Gentlemen can unfetter facial tangles with an old-fashioned blade shave, performed by a steady-handed master barber. The invigorating treatment begins as bristles are bathed in high-quality shaving oils and skin is prepped with a hot-towel mask and thick coat of lather. The precision of a double-close straight-edge razor helps keep patrons from enticing amorous cacti, and a soothing after-shave mask soaks into skin, leaving it refreshed, hydrated, and smoother than a bald eagle. An additional stimulating scalp massage indulges gentlemen with 15 minutes of neck and scalp pampering.
The pleasantly placid interior of the 217-year-old home surrounds visitors in a comforting blanket of rich mahogany, lavish furnishings, and original antique heart-pine floors that evoke the drawing rooms of historic gentlemen’s clubs. In addition to dropping critical milliseconds from swim-lap times, customers may partake In complimentary beverages and shoeshines. Although not included with today's Groupon, cigars are available for purchase.
Although Old South Barber Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Old South Barber Spa
Belying its moniker, Old South Barber Spa is a modern facility where the charms and amenities of an old-fashioned southern men’s club are ladled into a historical home’s luxurious confines. The shop’s barbers carefully trim hairs and gently shave beards and necklines using hot lather, shave oils, and a straightedge razor; the way it was done in the good old days when all walks to school were uphill on sidewalks made of quicksand. Barbers also treat hands and feet with manicures and pedicures, and pores with facials designed to rejuvenate and brighten skin.
Old South Barber Spa’s pleasantly placid interior, located inside a 217-year-old home, surrounds visitors in a comforting blanket of rich mahogany, lavish furnishings, and original antique heart-pine floors that evoke the drawing rooms of historical gentlemen’s clubs. In addition to banishing split ends to exile in a dustpan, customers may partake in complimentary beverages and shoeshines, and top off their spa experience by visiting the cigar bar, which will also enhance their Groucho Marx impressions.
