Baxter Finley Barber & Shop

This place is great. It's meat and potatoes. It's the Toots Shor of Barber Shops. I walked in a couple of days ago and felt totally at home for my first time.
I'd been to other barber shops that offered the 'classic' shave experience, but was ultimately disappointed by the cartridge service I received. This place is the real deal. It's a straight razor with all the fixings. The barbers are well versed in what to ask, and they execute what's best for your face.
The decor is simple. I listened to a great reggae playlist while I spent my thirty minutes in the chair. And I left with an excellent shave that lasted me well into the next day. There were a couple of small spots that could've done with a little more attention, but ultimately the time and money were well spent. I might even brave a haircut on my next visit. Stay tuned!
