I found this place quite by accident when my client, Phillip and I were touring one of my favourite barrios, Caballito. We felt like we stepped back in time in this museum/barber shop/cafe. It's off the charts amazing!
Check out our keen model, Jules (sadly no one was getting a close razor shave that day) and our talented barber, Ignacio. This place has been around since the beginning of time. Every instrument used is legit. The little cafe is old school. Ignacio told me they are the proud owners of the oldest barber chair in Buenos Aires. Damn.
All around, a super cool experience. The cerveza is freezing cold on a hot day, the staff welcoming and kind. Be aware that you will be charged a fiver to take photos.
Oh! To up the ante on the coolness factor, the shop becomes a tango show from 4:30-6:30 Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Couldn't think of a better backdrop for a few tango photos!
