QG: The Classic Men’s Department Store
31 S Calvert St.,
Baltimore, MD 21202
(410) 685-7428

All right boys, put down your remotes and game controllers and try to accomplish at least one thing on your to-do list this weekend. Don’t get annoyed just yet; you might actually be able to make this fun. Let’s start with the haircut and shave and head over to QG (Quinntessential Gentleman) to turn you from a boy into a gent.

Since opening a small barbershop in 2005, Craig Martin has been working hard to perfect the art of the barbershop, while bringing respect back to his profession. On October 18th, with the grand reopening, he will re-present this six-floor man haven to the public as QG: The Classic Men’s Department Store.

With TV’s, drinks, games, shops, a tailor and of course, the cut and shave, you’ll not only be able to get that haircut your hunny has been nagging you about, you’ll also be able to check off a few more things on that list of yours.

And though this place has clearly redefined “me-time” for the man, you’re welcome to bring along your lady for a romantic spa day, your way, because, of course, the Quinntessential Gentleman is always pampering his lady.

There are several types of memberships you can choose from at QG; if you want the full experience however, it’s the Office members who will be able to decompress in Baltimore’s only real man lounge. Here you will receive so many perks you won’t know where to start: from a premium cigar smoking lounge to a wet-bar with a poker table, HD TV’s, vintage arcade cabinet games, X-box and oh so much more.

Just be prepared, after visiting, you’ll never look at your man cave the same way again.
