1. Temescal Alley Barbershop 470 49th St, Oakland, CA 94609 (Oakland)

From two tattoo-sleeved dudes with serious old-timey grooming skills, TAB is new "shave-and-a" shop erected where the pre-Caldecott tunnel mule stables once stood, with a red-door'd, fir-beamed interior sporting classily framed sepia portraits of their double great-grandparents, a cowhide rug'd waiting area, and three vintage barbering chairs, including one that Mark Twain used to sit on up in gold country.
