The first Pall Mall Barbers Gentleman’s event took place on November 12th at the Boisdale of Belgravia in London. The event saw a collective of companies that have worked with Pall Mall Barbers on various projects come together at the decadent venue to showcase, 'What makes a Pall Mall Gentleman?'
The Boisdale was descended on by an eclectic mix of London’s most stylish guys and girls – from media types, lifestyle bloggers and journalists to models and stylists. The jazz club and restaurant was packed to the rafters with movers, shakers and some pretty impressive facial hair.
The front bar played host to two barbers’ chairs as guests were treated to a luxury wet shave with an audience. Pall Mall’s stylists talked the crowds through each step of the process as they prepared their patients for the shave of their life. All participants came away looking positively revitalized and baby-soft. Some Movember guests requested to keep their ‘tasches’ intact, some opted for a trim and tidy and a few requested to have theirs whisked away altogether.
Other stands within the event showcased the Pall Mall Barbers’ range of products as well as grooming goodies from their good friends at both Captain Fawcett and London’s oldest chemist, D R Harris. Park Lane based Shoe Shine UK set up shop in the back room, imparting advice and performing their superb artisan shoe shines to plenty of happy chaps. London Dating Club drew a crowd with their professional advice for modern day dating in the capital, and upstairs another treasure trove awaited guests where they were treated to professional portrait photographs by talented snapper Robin Bharaj, and browsed luxury silk scarves for both men and women from St Piece.
King of cufflinks, Simon Carter was also in the building with a range of stunning gifts from his Covent Garden flagship store. Needless to say, plenty of Christmas shopping was crossed off that evening, and guests stepped back out into the night laden with purchases and goodie bags.
Speaking of the event, Daniel Davis, General Manager of Pall Mall Barbers said,
I would like to thank all of the Pall Mall Barbers team who got involved and worked their socks off for me at the event along with the companies that showcased their craft.
With hosting and organising the event I can safely say it was a fairly big workload, but on reflection I would do it again in a heartbeat. We made some amazing new contacts and strengthened our existing ones. This only strengthens the Pall Mall Barbers brand and sets us up for bigger events in the future - we’re already looking forward to, and planning, our next event.
