Unwind from the pressures of a poor work-life balance at the capital’s original one-stop grooming destination. Recognising the burgeoning market for male-specific pampering, The Refinery was ahead of the game when it opened twelve years ago. Today, this all-white Mayfair groomery is an esteemed frontrunner with all the panache you could wish for and a varied range of services.

Barbering, waxing and full body scrubs so virtuous you’ll practically float home; you name it, it’s probably on the menu. Our only complaint is that there simply weren’t enough hours in the day to test every treatment that caught our eye. But thinking about it, it presents a textbook reason to return, right?

Inside track 

Top treatment: The SkinCeuticals City Recovery Facial. This beauty addresses every skin woe associated with central city living. From blocked pores to dry patches, dullness to UV damage, it covers them all. 

What to pack: Time is your only enemy here and unfortunately it can’t be bottled.
