Located on the 2nd floor of the hotel, the Mandarin Barber offers traditional shaving and hair services together with restorative grooming treatments for men. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and reminiscent of a private gentleman’s club.
The experienced Barber team, many of whom have been working with their loyal clientele for decades, preside over the six traditional barber chairs. For those preferring the privacy of a solitary shave and trim, a VIP room has been incorporated into the space. Lifestyle massages, waxing treatments and facials are performed in a private treatment room and the hotel’s legendary Shanghainese pedicures are offered by our in-barber resident pedicurist Ben Cheung which can be enjoyed from the comfort of our dedicated pedicure room.
A strategic part of a Hong Kong gentleman’s daily routine since 1963, The Mandarin Barber enjoys beautiful interiors inspired by the Art Deco chic of 1930’s Shanghai. The result is a comfortable, masculine urban retreat with many of the original 1960s furnishings remaining.
The Mandarin Barber has also been fitted with subtle state-of-the-art technology to ensure guests can keep track of their favourite sports or follow the markets from the in-mirror television screens.
Alternatively, for a truly unique experience in our VIP treatment room, our 30-minute Baby’s First Haircut service welcomes young ones and their parents. The experience includes a Baby’s First Haircut certificate signed by our barber with a lock of hair placed in a frame to treasure forever. The service is available on Sundays only from 9 to 11am and advance reservations is needed.
