Short back and booze

Just like pubs, burgers and Peckham, the old-fashioned barber shop has had an image overhaul.

Far better and far more expensive. You can play pool, have a drink and get your hair cut. The latest male hairdressing and grooming experience Manifesto is perhaps the most stylish yet.

Boasting an in-house art gallery and fashion installations, the dimly lit concrete and brick interior wouldn’t be out of place in Brooklyn. Neither would the drinks menu - no Yorkshire tea here, but you do get a whisky or freshly squeezed juice with your new ’do.

To experience Manifesto’s very finest try The Dandy Experience - a traditional wet shave or beard trim, haircut, treatment, head massage and glass of whiskey for £80.
