With two locations, one on Magazine Street and one on Fulton Street in New Orleans, Aidan Gill is a mecca for any man in need of serious grooming. A one stop shop for cuts, shaves, products and select menswear pieces – this men’s destination will whip you into shape, preparing you for that special event or night out on the town.
Mr. Gill, a native of Dublin, has built the perfect and authentic throwback to a time when men socialized around the barber’s chair. Outfitting his storefronts with vintage finds from the “good old days” – including barber chairs from the 1930’s, huge antique mirrors, mannequin heads, suggestive signs and other items, visitors instantly feel as if they’ve taken a step back into an era of refinement.
If you make an appointment here, you might experience a spot-on haircut accompanied by a blissful hot shave with the proprietor’s own shaving oil. Enjoy a smooth Irish whiskey during the entire process and, after, peruse the perfectly curated selection of haircare, skincare and shaving necessities. You won’t find a better way to spend an early afternoon in New Orleans.
