Hammer & Nails
Coral Gables isn’t the only locale giving guys their own “me” time. The new Hammer & Nails in Midtown is a cross between a traditional barbershop and a nail salon in a laid-back, industrial man cave. Complete with TV-embedded mirrors, it’s the kind of place where a guy could do some serious relaxing.
