It's been said that London is a man’s town; the city’s barbershops certainly live up to the reputation. Prime among them is Pankhurst, just off Carnaby Street (that Swinging 60s hot spot turned pedestrian shopping strip) in a space billed as “part speakeasy, part gentleman’s club.” This means you can sit back in a Midcentury Modern man cave with a hefty drink from the Johnnie Walker basement bar and listen to vintage records (Ziggy Stardust, anyone?). When it’s your turn, you’ll take a seat in a bespoke chair upholstered by Bentley’s leather craftsmen. On the menu? A haircut, a classic wet shave, or a scalp or hot towel face massage (or all four). Looking for a souvenir? Founder and master stylist Brent Pankhurst has stylishly packaged a range of his products, from a shaving set to a “silver fox” shampoo.
