Elvet Bridge, Durham is now home to some fabulous establishments for the modern gent. Located at the top of Elvet Bridge, The House of Gentlemen is Durham’s first luxury male groomers, offering barbers, refinery rooms and tattoos all under one roof. Described as a hybrid of British opulence and eccentricity, this is a renaissance of the Gentleman. House of Gentlemen offers everything that a modern Gent needs to keep himself dapper from moustache styling to barbering, haircuts and hair styling and even pampering with hot towels to cleanse skin, open pores and relieve tight neck and shoulders. The refinery offers a range of treatments including massage and waxing. There are several different massage treatments on offer including sports, hot stone, Swedish and the new bamboo massage, which is great for deep, tissue work. It also offers back facial, body exfoliation and a range of facials as well as manicures and pedicures.
We have long been fans of Durham’s Woven Gentlemen’s Outfitters, purveyors of some seriously stylish clothing for men. They offer floors of men’s fashion in their new store on Elvet Bridge and the lovely chaps are always on hand to give advice and guidance. Their best selling brands include suits by Remus Uomo and Gibson London with casual looks from the likes of merc London, Gabicci Vintage, Bertoni of Denmark and footwear from John White.
They have recently been shortlisted for three prestigious Drapers Awards, where the fashion world celebrates the best independent fashion talents nationwide. The shop has fought off competition from the best of the United Kingdom’s fashion retail sector to be shortlisted for: Best Customer Experience, Best Store Design and Menswear Independent of the Year.
