Whats up?
If there was one thing in common among local rock stars, you might begin by stating that all of them, past or present, sooner or later, gets their hair cut at Roho. 15 years ago, owner Oscar Fernandez created this mecca for musicians, designers and artists who were searching for an original look that distinguishes them from the rest. In other words, this man knows exactly how to make a difference. Even if you don’t play guitar or have never recorded an album, don’t worry Roho still remains the ideal place if you're thinking about styling up your image. Make your trip to the hairdresser no longer a mere formality, but a memorable experience you’ll want to repeat often. Oscar’s two locations allure the outsiders to enter a fantasy world where music, film and the hairdresser’s scissors are exquisitely combined. The ambiance radiates spacious and comfortable couches, flat screen televisions playing music videos or Guitar Hero, the latest editions of fashion magazines, a delicious drink or espresso in your hand and a great record playing that make’s you forget you were waiting in the first place. In fact, it’s hard to leave the luxuries of the waiting room when it’s your turn for the chop. But what follows is no less exciting: a delightful member of their staff will take you to one of the sinks where they will give you a thorough and relaxing hair wash and scalp massage, while a small screen located on the roof plays your favourite TV series or a new movie. Don’t fear, your experience doesn’t have to end after your cut. Carefully planning each customers visiting experience, the staff take pride in their attention to detail and the next time you return your visit will be even more pleasurable. Entrust your roots to the delicate hands of your stylist and get the look your really want.

Take a stroll around Palermo on any weekend afternoon and you’ll probably come across a dozen places offering a “brunch” special. The end of the week ritual has become such a trend that it has spawned its own nomenclature: brunchear.

Maybe it’s because you need a password to get in. Or perhaps its because of the plush velvet interior, the crystal chandeliers and the roaring 20s soundtrack wafting through the doors. Whatever it is, everybody is talking about Frank’s Bar.

Located on the edge of Palermo Hollywood, you wouldn’t know it was a bar-unless you knew it was Frank’s. A “Joe Mafia” guards an...
