Next to the main entrance of the impressive Hotel New York, almost hidden, you’ll find three steps down to a small door with a vintage ‘We are open’ sign on it’s window. I open the small door and ‘The Voice’ of Sinatra fills the room with jazzy sounds. Four top barbers are concentrating on giving men stylish haircuts. Once seated I am offered a Jack Daniels, which I eagerly accept. On the wall photo’s of Mickey Rourke, Matt Damon and Pelle, the famous soccer player who played for Rotterdam. All of whom have visited this well know barbershop.
It takes a while getting your haircut. But you are treated like a king in this classy establishment. It’s a combination of a good conversation, a smooth shave and an even better haircut. Want to go back in time, impress your girlfriend or wife with a stylish new look? Then you should definitely take the time and visit this place.
