To all those who do not know, there is now only one place in Downtown Cincinnati where you can smoke indoors....that's right INDOORS.
Strauss Tobacconist (4th & Walnut) is a weekly (if not more) place where I go to smoke my sticks or fill up my pipe. The owner, Jim, is incredible. You won't find a better customer service team in downtown. Tim, Grant and Chuck all know their stuff and are more than willing to help you find exactly what you are looking for. Many of Cincinnati's famous, from athletes to radio personalities, make their way here often
As an added bonus, they are open on Saturday from 9-4. Just enough time to come in, grab a smoke and BS for a bit before heading out to dinner.
I absolutely recommend this place, or my name isn't CmbtEngr
