That’s right, you read that correctly. A cigar bar, aptly named Churchills is located in downtown Birmingham, Michigan. I don’t know the area very well, but I was out there yesterday for a speaking engagement and upon finishing, decided I’d find a local spot.
One of the women I had talked to had told me she knew a few spots, but this one was probably the one still opened at this hour. It was after 10 PM when we were heading out.
After a short drive from my hotel, she dropped me off. I walked in to this rather large space, sort of like Highland Cigar Company, but arranged more with tables and booths, rather than couches. I have only the one photo of the place, as it was late and I was sleep deprived.
Huge leather chairs decorated the place, along with a sizeable walk in humidor. It looks more or less like an Ashton sponsored cigar bar. Decorated with Ashton artwork and ashtrays, a premium selection of Davidoff cigars, among others, the place carried a varied clientele, even at that late an hour.
I sat down and perused the extensive drink menu. Settled on Founders IPA and a glass of bourbon to finish with while the staff cut and lit my cigar for me.
I was left in relative peace – fine for a newcomer in my current mental state, but for the waiter coming by to tend to my drinks.
Awesome spot overall.
