Hong Kong: a Suave Salon for Male Grooming

Male grooming has a new home with the opening of the first Hong Kong branch of London’s Gentlemen’s Tonic (B47, The Landmark, 15 Queens Rd., Central; 852/2525-2455; gentlemenstonic.com). This trim little salon, tucked away below The Landmark shopping center, offers a touch of British suavity and a host of feel-good, masculine-inspired treatments, from massages and facials to beard sculpting. Dressed in muted white and black, the new salon makes up in service and diversity of treatments what it lacks in cigars and smoking jacket decor. Try the Hemingway (US$230), a package that includes a steam facial and back massage as well as a Bloody Mary; or slip in for a quick wet shave, conducted in chic private suites. –Nicholas Walton
