Cigar Spot in Birmingham, MI!

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.

IMG_3620One 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.
