Gentleman, say hello to PDL Dubai Barbershop, the ultimate man cave for all things grooming…
This isn’t just any old barbershop. Named after a bike ‘pedal’ thanks to the Emirati founders’ love of cycling, PDL is a barbershop, speciality coffee gem, retail outlet and community hang hotspot.
But you don’t have to be bike obsessed to dig PDL either. Because there’s plenty to fall in love with outside of the cycling paraphernalia. Take the huge leather armchairs in the private mani/pedi stations, which face your own private TV screen armed with Netflix, for example. Or the room with the pool table. And if you really want to unwind, the private treatment rooms with luxurious en-suites will handle that. Like we said – it really is the ultimate man cave for all things grooming.
Services include haircuts/colours and shaves, face shaves (including traditional hot towel) and threading, massage, manicure and pedicures, waxing and clippers and facials.
The Huntr booked in for two Foot Spa Pedicures (150 AED) – a totally relaxing experience that left our feet feeling like a baby’s. We loved being able to relax and catch up on Netflix too. We also had a trim in the barber’s chair (110 AED). The staff are talented, chatty and friendly.
The drinks and refreshments come courtesy of PDL’s adjoining speciality coffee shop (more on that here), which serves up your usual hot espresso bar options, cold coffees and 3rdwave/pour overs. There are also some light snacks, bakes, sandwiches and wraps.
