Doc Guthrie's Barbershop Shanghai

Shanghai's One and Only
Traditional Style Barber

We opened Doc Guthrie’s because we felt Shanghai needed a place where men could go and get a quick hair cut in surroundings that suited us.

No pop music in the background, waiting on perms and curls and fancy hair washing to be finished. Somewhere we can go in, drink a beer or whiskey, talk shit, get a cut and leave looking better than we entered. We’re in the North Jingan area on Kangding lu, on the same block as Sailors, Sushi O, Malabar, Enoterra, and Lab. Feel free to make an appointment or just walk in.


Services at Doc Guthrie's

We’re bringing the classic, traditional barber shop to Shanghai. That means classic cuts and straight razor shaves for men. Whether you’re a come in every Saturday before going out or a once a month kind of guy we can guarantee you’ll get the best service and cut in town. All of our cuts include an optional shampoo/ rinse and we’ll also clean up your hairline with a straight razor. EVEN BETTER we’ll make sure you have a complimentary glass of Jameson Whiskey or beer (or soft drink) in hand while it all happens.

Appointments are not always necessary but are advisable.


All styles of haircuts available whether it’s a full restyle, a clean up or something a little more extreme. Clipper cuts, scissor cuts, fades, pompadores – you name it.


Straight Razor Shave

Whether it’s for a special occasion or just at the end of a tough day, you’ll leave our barber chair looking sharper and feeling better than you did when you sat down.


Haircut & Shave

Come in, sit down in one of our chairs, and let our barbers cut, trim and shave your hair & beard until you’re looking brand new at a special knocked down price.



Exactly what the title says. Keep it simple, we’ll make sure your hair is kept smart and tidy with a quick, no fuss clipper cut.


Back and Sides

Maintain your style. Nothing off the top, just clean up the back and sides. Get a proper cut every month or so, but drop in and keep it looking tight every two weeks.


Clipper Beard Trim

Keep your beard under control with a regular trim and shape from one of our trained barbers. Beard trim includes an optional hairline tidy up.



Bring in your kids (under 12 years old) and we’ll reward you with a whiskey. Doesn’t get better than that. They get cuts, you get whiskey.
