In the mid-to-late 90s, I lived at Charles Street and Yonge for a couple of years. I was going to school down the street, so it was awfully convenient. During this period of my life, I got every haircut at House of Lords at 639 Yonge Street (website).
As a young man, House of Lords seemed very cool. They played loud music, had a funky creative vibe and the price was right. I think it was $14 a cut back then.
House of Lords is closing for good this October after 51 years. They're blaming increasing property taxes.
Here's a great old ad for House of Lords that aired on CFNY back in the day.
