LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 10/17/13 -- In a world where nearly everything can be done online, certain institutions assume a sort of sanctity by virtue of their rarity. Such is the case of the gentleman's shave. The steaming towels, the thick cream applied by a shaving brush and the expert razor strokes can be as difficult to find as they are luxurious to experience first-hand. Luckily for the male patrons of St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, they can enjoy this and much more at the hotel's brand-new Gentlemen's Tonic Express.

The opening launched its initial Express location at the luxury hotel near King's Cross on August 6, 2013. Offering a tailored range of barbershop services, Gentlemen's Tonic Express at St Pancras Renaissance promises to be an often visited destination. Haircuts, colours and shaves hark back to an earlier era when expertise was a touchstone of such services. The signature Wet Shave, for example, combines old-fashioned technical skill with the latest in luxury products. Other treatments, like the GT Bespoke Hair & Scalp Treatment, which promises to help repair, moisturize and treat various hair conditions, reflect modern grooming needs and preferences.

Gentlemen's Tonic has already established its reputation for expert services with its original Mayfair location. It has since expanded to Hong Kong and Dubai, but its Express branch at this spa is the first of its kind and ideally suited for this particular hotel, which has direct access to St Pancras International Station. Visitors staying at the hotel or catching a train out of town will benefit equally from the efficient services available.

The arrival of Gentlemen's Tonic to one of London's most revered hotels symbolizes the sort of changes underway in the King's Cross area. As visitors take advantage of the deals at this spa and the St Pancras hotel, they are bound to fall under the spell of this magnificent property and the ever-evolving neighborhood beyond.
