BARBER AND CO.

Where Toronto - - BEST OF THE CITY -

It took Barber and Co.’s own­ers three years to find the per­fect space in Toronto, one lo­cated smack dab in the city’s epi­cen­tre of cool, with floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows in the front and a se­cret bar in the back. Ser­vices in­clude hot shaves, beard main­te­nance, and ex­pert ren­di­tions of the es­sen­tial hip­ster hair­cuts: the pom­padour, the fade, the un­der­cut–man bun combo. And in­stead of the usual tap wa­ter or drip cof­fee, clients drink scotch and bour­bon or lo­cal beers. At night, the snip­ping stops and the place turns into a full-fledged bar, mix­ing cock­tails with in­gre­di­ents like house-blended yuzu bit­ters, gar­de­nia-scented dry ver­mouth and co­conut­pineap­ple foam. 89 Oss­ing­ton Ave., bar­berandco.com
