At New York's Le Parker Meridien hotel, men now have a special place to prep and groom. Opened on April 11, Sharps Barber and Shop brings back the glory days of a nearly bygone institution, offering a range of hot-towel shaves, haircuts and beard and mustache trims by seasoned professionals with decades of experience. With hand-laid marble floors, subway-tiled walls, tin ceilings, dark woods and three simple barber chairs, the place has an old-school vibe. As the name implies, it's also part shop, offering the full line of Sharps products (the hotel liked the goods so much, it now uses them as amenities in its 731 rooms). Walk-ins are welcome, and hotel guests can also book in-room services. 119 W. 56th St.; 212-557-4400; leparkermeridien.sharpsnyc.com.
