Ludlow Blunt of Brooklyn has attracted the attention of celebrities as well as anyone looking for a unique barbershop that brings classic heritage together with modern styles. The new shop, located in Tokyo’s Daikanyama, is their second location, and it mirrors the original store with its 1930s style. The store has gone all out with marble brought in from New York under vintage designed chairs, and the company has even processed the mirrors to give them a worn-out look. Unlike the New York shop, the store has an adjacent café with enough space for about thirty people. Here they hold events such as seminars on everything from polishing shoes to how to enjoy a good cigar. This is a social spot for mature, rugged types who enjoy the finer things and engaging with each other into the night with a drink in hand. Ludlow Blunt is more than a barbershop.
