The signature service is Royal Shave which is very unique 45min service. Experience the luxury of a timeless straight-razor shave. Perfected since 1805, this classic Royal ritual begins with the wrapping of hot towels followed by exfoliating the face with a scrub. Thereafter, the skin is nourished and massaged with a light-textured pre-shave oil. This makes the beard soft, allowing the razor blade to glide smoothly. A hot towel is wrapped again, an occurrence that is repeated often to help open the pores and relax the customer. Using our handmade badger brush, a small amount of our glycerine-based shaving cream is applied to create a rich and emollient lather. The brush coats each individual whisker with shaving cream ensuring the most comfortable shave possible. Now, holding the skin taut with one hand, the other hand does its magic with a straight-razor. This zen experience of shaving heightens when the Royal Shave concludes with a relaxing facial massage and the application of a selection of 10 aftershave balms. 

They also have an exclusive VIP Room called Dukes’ Den for that special engagement, business meeting, or simply just to relax and unwind!
