Want to get your hair cut with the Beltway's power players? Head to this Capital Hill mainstay in the basement of the Rayburn House Office Building. Head barber Joe Quattrone – on duty since 1965 – has held a straight razor to the necks of former presidents, including George H.W. Bush and Gerald Ford, vice presidents such as Al Gore and Dick Cheney, and more congressmen than he can count. The walls of the shop are filled with signed portraits of Washington's most powerful characters. You can talk politics if you want, but Quattrone is focused on keeping parts in place. [Haircuts, from $15; shaves, from $10; beard trim, $7; shoe shines, $7; 1015 U St. NW, 202-225-2327]
