BARBER AND CO.
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
