This shop is one my favorite destinations. It has a wonderful family owned time honored tradition feel with welcoming knowledgeable employees. It reminds me of Europe, but has a unique friendliness that the shop of this type across continents would not have. It has everything...More

If you are into traditional wet shaving, this is your place in Chicago. The prices are better than Art of Shaving, and the selection is very good. Lots of shaving soaps, brushes, double-edge safety razors, and after-shaves. They also have a really nice selection of...More

The apothecary expanded, adding a whole attached shop for shaving. It's expensive, but the service is friendly and you can ask for test strips. Warning: the smell of shaving products is very strong.
