Barbershop Royale is a barbershop-themed web series produced and hosted by the Destination Quartet, featuring 9 quartets competing remotely in "Survivor"-like challenges. The series was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in the cancellation of many barbershop competitions in 2020.

Participating quartets were asked to provide a short introductory video of their quartet, video of past performance, a "music video" of the quartet singing a traditional barbershop song, and video of quartet members conducting an egg-and-spoon race.

Viewers were allowed to vote through an online interface to give their selected quartet "immunity" in upcoming challenges. The winner of the round was reported by Destination Quartet before releasing the subsequent episode. In addition to votes, immunity was provided to quartets whose chosen charity received the most donations. Each quartet picked one charity to represent for the duration of the series.
