Best New-School Old-School Barbershop - 2013
Ollie's Barbershop is tiny, with two cutting chairs and just a thin strip of real estate in the ever-more-popular Lower Highland neighborhood. But walking through the door is like taking a step back in time while still keeping uber-current. And hip is in abundance here, as four-year-old Ollie's specializes in giving hot lather shaves and haircuts to gentlemen whose wavy hair and finely waxed mustaches look straight out of an 1890s black-and-white photo. Old-school decor, including a swell barber's pole and sign, cover the walls; there's no TV; and if you bring your own grog, you can drink it right there in your seat. That's worth more than two bits.
