It can boast of names like Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, Lord Byron, Frank Sinatra, Winston Churchill, Alfred Hitchcock and Laurence Olivier among few of their renowned clients. 

It is one of the oldest barber shops in the world (it began in 1805) and now It has opened its proud doors in Mumbai to the sheer pleasure and indulgence of men who are particular about their grooming.

So what do you expect on the menu here where men with glorious past and history have walked in for their personal grooming? You will find The Royal Shave, A Royal Haircut, Classic Shave and Haircut, other hair treatments, manicure & pedicure, head massage, facial among many more with a complimentary shoe shine with every visit.

That’s not all, you can also shop for lifestyle and grooming products, which include shaving travel kits, exclusive perfumes and colognes, bath and body products. Along with this they will retail exclusive hand-made cufflinks, some of the finest shoes from England, and other exclusive leather.
