    Sam's a stand up guy and a stellar barber. This spot is famous, but still feels like a best-kept secret; I stumbled in here before work one morning and have never looked back. Sam takes the time to understand what you want, and he has the skills (you won't find scissor work like this in other barber shops) to really make you look clean. My only regret is that I didn't find this place sooner.Services: Haircut

    If you want an authentic barber shop experience, Civic Opera Barber Shop is the best place in Chicago. Sam provides the complete package of services and takes the time to get to know every customer. He does great haircuts (complete with a straight razor neck trim) and I've also had the privilege of getting a full straight razor shave from him (complete with a hot towel to start, hot foam brushed on, and a cold towel / aftershave to finish). I always leave looking professional and feeling great and would highly recommend visiting the shop.Services: Haircut

    I am visiting Chicago for the weekend and needed a haircut. I read some reviews and asked a friend who lives in Chicago about where to go. Based on the recommendation, I called Civic Barber Shop - and I am happy I did. Sam told me that he could take me right away and I headed over there. The barber shop is located on the 15th floor. Once I arrived, Sam took the time to show me some examples of haircuts for my type of hair. Once we agreed on the style, he started cutting. He then gave me a shampoo and made sure everything looked perfect. He even offered me an espresso and cookies. I was very impressed with the whole experience would highly recommend.Service: Haircut
