I spotted this in the Chiado district of Lisbon one evening and had to do a double take. A man appeared to be having a shave in the doorway of a bar. Was it a barber’s shop with lots of bottles of alcohol or was it a bar with a barber’s chair? In fact it is a barber’s shop and a trendy bar combined, called O Purista Barbière on Rua Nova da Trindade.
A year later we decided to try it out for ourselves, so while Neil had a hot towel shave (€10), I sat and enjoyed a glass of Dogtown Pale Ale.
