The Gents Place in Dallas

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and The Gents Place doesn't disappoint. It's decked out in big comfy lounge chairs, wide open spaces paneled in wood, and a giant red felt pool table for killing time between appointments. There's a menu of annual memberships that range from $795–$3000 and include their signature "hand repair service," which is a favorite of clients. Just don't call it a manicure. "We would never call it that," says founder Ben Davis. There's a place to plug in your laptop while grabbing a drink at the bar if business calls. Pony up while getting a hot towel shave. That's not a bad day at the office. [214–329-0400,]
