Rudy’s are good people. They’re our neighbor in Manhattan and Seattle (and elsewhere) and now they have a new outpost in Williamsburg — a mercantile for which 100% of profits are going to support Waves for Water's Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Stop by for a haircut, some Stumptown Coffee and good, upstanding holiday gifts for your loved ones and yourself. If you’re staying with us at Ace, flash your room key for 10% off everything in the shop.

A short vignette about the new Rudy’s Barbershop at Ace Hotel New York — all their beautiful old doors and shit. We love them. If you’re staying with us in New York, you have exclusive rights to reserving a cuttin’ chair and a solid deal on products. You can go home a changed wo/man….


Rudy’s is our newest neighbor at Ace NYC. They’ve only been here a few weeks and it’s already fireworks and balloon drops every day. We love Rudy’s. Remember — if you’re staying with us, you get priority real estate at the guillotine and a friendly deal on cuts, products and everything else.


If you’re a dad, or you have one, or you know one — come get your hair did at the new Rudy’s Barbershop opening up next door to Ace Hotel New York in June. When you book a Medium Room during Father’s Day weekend, we’ll throw in a free haircut and some dapper-smelling Rudy’s shampoo for the mane event and shave cream for handsome yet rugged cheeks. If you’re not in the neighborhood, you can pick up something dignified and proud for your dad (or yourself) on our online shop. Our Beams x Ace Passport Wallet is very international, and you can always go classic and scoop him an Ace x Baron Wells Necktie. If you have a radical dad or a dad who likes money (two characteristics that don’t have to be mutually exclusive), grab him a Billykirk x Ace Change is Good Tray — the only downside to that gift is it may seriously cut back on the savings account your dad is building for you in the couch cushions.

We’re inspired by the gracefully integrated activism of Apolis' line of work, including their Market Bag, made in partnership with a small artisan co-op in Bangladesh. Rudy’s Barbershop has collaborated with Apolis to garner even more visibility for the product and the partnership, and to support the co-op (the Rudy’s Saves bag is pictured here in action with CEO Vy Le at the Pike Place Market in Ace’s hometown of Seattle, WA). Demand for the bag has grown so much that the infrastructure of the co-op needs to expand considerably. In response, Apolis has created the Bangladesh Sewing Academy — a project to buy 20 new sewing machines for 20 women in the co-op. They’re taking donations now, and as a stakeholder, you’ll be a part of the collective investment of $8,500 in the building of a new facility, the purchase of 20 new sewing machines & the wages of two trainers who will provide 20 women with employment training every 6 months. They’ve raised over $3,000 — show your love and get 20% off at the Apolis online shop.
