The unique spaQ concept at the new QT Sydney hotel is designed to cater to the needs of the modern urban man.
Set in the historical Gowings building in the Central Business District (CBD), spaQ pays homage to its roots by reinstating the former department store’s traditional men’s barber service. While sitting in an authentic American barber’s chair, guests can experience a flawless shave with a straight blade, hot towels and face massage.
The barber also provides man-friendly facials and speedy services for gentlemen on the go, using products from Australia’s Uspa and Britain’s George Trumper.
SpaQ also accommodates men who like to keep their skin looking healthy and refreshed. Treatments include massages, facial and scrub therapies using Uspa products, and a waxing service. Various treatment packages, including Weekend Warrior, are devised with men in mind.
Settle into the experience in spaQ’s complimentary Hammam-style steam and ice room.
The spaQ interior, designed by acclaimed designer Nic Graham, speaks to masculine tastes with a rich, dark colour palette. The six treatment rooms, relaxation room, and full amenity change room boast modern fixtures next to conversation pieces such as restored stained glass, heritage tiles, and wooden lockers recovered from World War II Japan.
