I was in town for a 3 day conference and went to Shelly's on Sunday & Monday night with some work buddies to catch some football, relax, and of course kick back & smoke.
What a great place! Very comfortable, lots of friendly BOTLs (one guy overheard my buddy & I talking about baseball and offered advice on my son's college/draft prospects.) Lots of room, the cigar prices are pretty steep but you can BYO, and the bar selection is great. One of the best things about Shelly's is definitely the air purification system--it's top notch. The place was pretty full both nights and we spent more than an hour there smoking, but our clothes didn't stink at all.
