OKC Pipes and Pubs.
Hmmmmmmmmm just goes to showya' some folks can be adult and some folks can't.
Wish we had some of that here in the dearly beloved Peoples Republic of Massachusetts.
Just "one" place, please God?
My club away from home is "The Fire-House Smoke-Shop".  Jack the owner bought it some years ago.  Originally it was a Horse drawn 'Fire Barn' from the Fall River "Lizzie Borden" days.  Then a bunch of Union Army vets bought it up and it became the GAR Veterans Club [righteous kitchen too] and stayed that way until 1970 when it closed its doors for the last time.  Jack bought it up in 1990.  The "nose" that hits you when you walk in is heavenly especially if there is some Dark English fired up.  He has an absolutely beautiful walk-in Cigar humidor with just about everything under the sun there, and a really tastefully made compartmented Victorian "Wall" humidor with cubbies to let.  There is  Cigar club that meets regularly .  Off the front, in a Victorian bay window setting opening view onto the sidewalk and street is the magazine and reading room, easy chairs, convenient ash trays, a 60" wall  screen tele. with either Lou Dobbs and Business Report or MeTV with Gunsmoke, Bonanza, or I love Lucy rerun marathons going.  The patron can buy himself a beautiful heavy porcelained coffee mug and join the "Mess" if he so desires.  "Wyatt" [for Earp not the Painter] will be there to greet you, a friendly Black Cocker Spaniel that actually isn't neurotic.  Conduct yourself as a gentleman and Jack is more than happy to have one sample a bowl of his different offerings from McClellands.  I could not begin to make this up; this is a Gentleman's Club in the most positive sense of the word.  If one is hungry they can walk around the corner to the Saint James Irish Pub  and order up an authentic Full Irish Breakfast [with brown bread that would sharpen your teeth] or Pub Dinner, bangers, mash, cabbage, and corned beef with a pint poured properly; Jack owns the Saint James.  Finish up, go back to 'FireHouse' and light up a bowl and enjoy the winter afternoon's late sun in the Reading Room wondering: "...what do the poor people do?!....Oh! we are the Poor people?!...."

PS "OKC"? those were the initial of USS Oklahoma City CLG-5; those of us who loved here we just called her "...OkaySee?..."
We made lots of bad guys die and go away in VietNam, "...warn't 'shamed of it neither???yawl!...."


You paint a very pleasant and welcoming picture of your local, Chief. Wish I could go there and share a bowl with you right now. Kudos to you that you still have places like that. I'm now officially envious!

In Pennsylvania they've set a criteria for certain bars to allow smoking. My wife works at one and business took a big jump because of it. I've not been to many of these smoking bars but all have been light cigars only and forget pipes. I'm not a drinker so bars are not my thing.

There's a number of high end cigar/pipe stores opening with décor nicer than most bars, not to mention the quality of patrons. Hated by 99.99% of the people and we still find ways to enjoy our tobacco. There's many here in Pittsburgh and one just opened 5 miles away from me that's amazing, blowing away any bar I've patronized in the last 30 years. It's also stocked with the finest of spirits in private boxes that are enjoyed free to friends gathering for the social night out. We adapt and change because we love our pipes!

cheers

What are the criteria? I love basically across the street from a bar that you can smoke anything in. It's a dive bar, not a cigar bar or anything. If I went out, it'd be a frequent stop, but I brew my own, so I drink at home.

  • Welcome to the Brotherhood, Mike!

  • Please come back often and join in.

  • I'm lucky to have a pub around here that still allows smoking.



 Cool




Sorry, PD.      lol!

Folks with smoking pubs like Mike's better relish and use them with great frequency, they are a dying and rare occurrence. It sounds like Mike certainly uses his local.

We have no such options in Maryland. Only outdoor smoking is available to us. Nearby WV still has a bit of personal freedoms, but I don't know of a real smoking pub in my vicinity.

Welcome to the forum Mike!

Sadly, I'm in the same boat here in Illinois. I believe the state's dispensation still allows you to smoke in a business if more than X% of their income comes from selling tobacco. Sadly, the smoke shops around here don't even qualify, as they are primarily dedicated to "alternative" smoking. What I wouldn't give for a friendly cigar bar, or top-drawer brick and mortar in town.
