After leading the way in fashion for many years now, Ted Baker recently diversified into old school Turkish barbers with Ted’s Grooming Room. We heard on the T-VINE they’d opened the doors to their newest site in Mortimer Street (complete with medical theme, as pictured below). To celebrate the launch, we took our Turkish selves down there to check it out.
Situated over two floors, they offer haircuts, beard trims and of course the traditional Turkish shave.
Downstairs you’ll find a cocktail bar built-in, offering you the chance to sip some fine concoctions while you’re being groomed.
The shaves are done in a traditional fashion with hot towels, cut throat razors and a standard splash of Kolonya after every shave.
Even if you don’t need a makeover, the experience alone is worth the visit: treat yourself to a shave, a drink and, if you’re lucky, a bit of lokum (but you didn’t hear that from us).
