1847 continues to raise the standards for male grooming in the Middle East. As the ideal spot to disconnect and unwind from your demanding, modern day lives, 1847 promises a unique, ‘executive grooming’ experience like no other.
A traditional concept with a contemporary edge, 1847 offers a portfolio of both luxurious and essential male oriented services ranging from shaves to shoe shines, waxing to hair cutting, manicures and pedicures to massages and facials. The 1847 man can experience a host of treatments in masculine and sophisticated surroundings that incorporate those ‘added luxuries’ such personal plasma screens and private libraries.
Located at the prestigious Governor House in Dubai Marina (one of many locations), 1847 automatically generates the gentleman vibe with their James Bond like entrance. Once arriving at 1847, it will take you a good thirty seconds before realising that the entrance to the gentleman’s lounge is a tiny black bottom in the middle of a large black sliding door. Impressive if I must say.
With my feet hammered from all the loafer wearing and running around, I had booked in a sports pedicure and massage. After being shown to my chair, I was offered a nespresso with house biscuits, before my masseuse Lina introduced herself and what my 45 minutes experience will consist of.
My feet went from being washed, cleaned, scraped and sanitised before the nail clipping begun. After Lina had finished clipping my toe nails, all the excess skin around the nail was removed before brushed with cuticle oil. Both feet were then covered in an exfoliating mask in preparation for the sports massage.
After both feet were rinsed and dried, they were individually dipped into hot paraffin wax three times each before being placed in plastic bags. Once locked into the plastic bags, each foot was placed into its own separate massaging bags before the vibration kicked in for a relaxing 15 minutes. Finally, bags were removed, feet were washed and clean from all the wax, and I was done!
The sports pedicure and massage assists in good bloody circulation and is ideal for the gentleman who always active with sports or are always on the run, travelling on a weekly basis.
There you have it, our memorable 1847 Lounge experience. A must.
