Specialties Groom is a barber shop, located in Center City, Philadelphia that combines classic techniques with modern style. Joe McMenamin, the owner and stylist, has established a setting that is quaint and comfortable. The decor, good conversation, and sweet background sounds from artists like Stan Getz and Django Reinhardt, are all part of what makes this as much about the experience as it does about the haircut. History Established in 2004 Groom Barbershop began 10 years ago in The Philadelphia Building. We moved to 1324 Locust Street – the Arts Condo/ Sylvania Building in 2009. We are located in the old basement barbershop that has been operating since 1926. We are “BEST OF PHILLY” winners for MEN’S HAICUT as well as shaving in 2012, 2010 & 2008. In 2012 we won the triple crown in the Philly Metro, Philly Weekly & Philly Magazine for best in town. Come see what all the hubbub is about. We’d love to have you & thanks for checking us out.
