  • Awesome staff and selection, this cigar and store is a national treasure. If you are a cigar person you will find a great selection of brands as well as accessories. For pipe smokers, you will find an even better experience with hundreds of pipes, many blends of tobaccos, and an incredibly knowledgeable staff.
  • I stopped in at the suggestion of a friend of mine. The shop is a wonderful place to visit. Definitely a place to buy a pipe if you are looking for one. I was looking for a Peterson and I found one to purchase. I bought a Jeckyl and Hyde model along with a Nording. If you have a pipe that needs some TLC they can help you. They had a vast selection of pipes. They were patient with me and took time to teach me how to care for my new pipes. Each purchase included a pipe blend of tobacco. They have a wide selection of pipe tobaccos also. I chose 3 different blends. Harry took the time to ask me what pipe blends I had smoked and what I liked about them. He made some suggestions based on my preferences. Harry was very helpful and did not pressure me into purchasing anything. After we talked about pipes; we talked about cigars and I asked for a cigar that is unique to the shop. I bought a few of the Hoffman House Robusto Vitola. They are great cigars. Most of my visit was talking about pipes and pipe tobacco and that is why I stopped in. There is nothing that compares to this shop in my area. If you want to learn about pipes and cigars and are in Chicago and have the time and are looking for a place to buy a pipe or cigar do yourself a favor and stop in. They do close early so be sure you plan accordingly.
