Best of everything – This must be the only cigar shop, lounge and bar all-in-one that I have ever seen. This place is awesome! The humidor is not just some tiny bartop thing...it is a nice walk-in size. The sofas were absolutely amazing to relax in. The bar is beautiful - and so are the girls that work there. Need I say more? They made a loyal customer out of me!
Phenomenal place! Great experience – I found this place during a business trip to Atlanta and went back every day that I was in town! The service was great and the selection was impressive (the new Camacho Triple Maduro rocked my world!).
I even brought my laptop and got some work done during the day while there. The pleasant music and comfortable sofas were just what I needed. I can't say enough about the ventilation system there. Not a trace of smoke!
I highly recommend Highland Cigar Co. I will definitely be back whenever I am in Atlanta!
Is Highland Going Out of Business?? – I Love Highland !! What happened?? I used to walk in and the girls remembered my name and they had an excellent selection of cigars. Most comfortable couches in Atlanta! My waitress even recommended what turned out to be a great scotch! Last time I went in the waitress didn't speak english and they had maybe fifteen brands. No one new my name and I had to go fetch a server. The title says it all. Inconsistent service (one night it's great and the next it takes three tries to get the right scotch). Inconsistent Selection. If I'm going to drive out of the way, it should be good every time.
Editorial Review – Clubby bar offers fine spirits and premium cigars from popular and hard-to-find brands, including private label, hand-rolled stogies.
Great bar in Inman Park to relax in – Great bar with friendly staff. They even let you order Johnny's Pizza if you are hungry!
This is a great bar to smoke a cigar in, in a great part of town. Even if you don't, the air isn't smoky as their HVAC seems to clean up the air quickly. There is now seating outside. I guess they read the comments here!
The leather seats are so comfortable, you could almost fall asleep while watching your favorite sport in them. The seating area is setup as a lounge, so you can get to know the people around you. I love it! If you get a private humidor, they put your name on a little plate on the front of it; very cool.
It feels like home! – I am so glad that I've come across this gem. The welcoming warm ambiance lures you in and is complemented by the exceptional service of their very attentive waitstaff. It is not too big and overcrowded. I notice that some people listed 'not being able to smoke inside' as a con. I, however, find this to be one of the most courteous gestures. I can fully enjoy the experience of smoking my cigar without a muddle of different kinds of smoke. (And I smoke cigarettes!)
You really get this feeling that you are hanging out with your friends in your own living room--well, so you tend to believe after you sink into their plush leather couches and catch a game on either of the big screens on the wall. I was just short of kicking off my shoes but decided against it for the sake of discretion. :) It really feels like home. In fact, it will be.
Great Cigar Shop – This place is amazing! They seem to have thought of everything - excellent cigars, excellent scotch and other drinks, excellent ventilation, excellent sofas, excellent service.......I could go on!
There is nothing even close to this anywhere. I walked into what I assumed would be a nice cigar shop (MUCH needed in Intown Atlanta) and I found my personal Xanadu! The combination of elements there is the key. You don't have to choose between a nice place to buy a cigar, then a nice place to smoke it, then a nice place to have a drink, then a nice place to go relax, then...then...then. It is all there!
THANK YOU GUYS FOR CREATING HIGHLAND CIGAR! After one visit, you can count me as one of your regulars!
The answer to my prayers! – There really are no cons to this place. Their selection of cigars is outstanding as well as their knowledge and personal enjoyment. Rob knows cigars like the back of his hand and is extremely helpful in helping you pick them out as well as giving the best advice on storing and taking care of them. And because of him, great conversation with just the right touch of attitude is dispensed daily at the bar. It's a place for cigar aficionados and novices alike. They serve only the top notch liquors at just the right price, and I could go on all day about the ventilation system and the humidor. The girls that work there are amazing. They tend to the rental humidors (yes you can rent your own!) and make every customer feel at home. They will even order food from local eateries for you! You can't beat this place, really. This neighborhood has needed a spot like this for a long time and these guys did it the RIGHT WAY! All of the excitement surrounding it is for a reason.
Great customer service!!! – I attended the grand opening of the bar and they had a really good crowd. I chatted with the owners, bartenders and waitresses and other patrons. The management and staff were personable and attentive. I?m a fan of good customer service and that?s exactly what I got. Needless to say I returned to the bar. I was shocked to see that they remembered me since there was such a large crowd at the grand opening. Even more shocking, the waitress asked if I wanted her to make the mixed drink I was drinking opening night. I laughed in assurance that she would not remember. Before I knew it I had my vodka, soda and 3 limes in front of me. This in itself sold me on the bar?oh and a recommendation of the perfect cigar! Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name?and they?re always glad you came.
Great New Spot!! Wonderful staff. – My girlfriend and I were trying to find a spot where we are able to enjoy a night out. We happened to spot Highland as we were driving by and decided to stop in for a minute and check it out. Of course it turned out an all night evening for us at Highland. My friend smokes cigarettes, and we were told it was a cigar only bar we decided on one more drink before leaving. That is before we were introduced to the wonderful Chocolate and Cinnamon cigars!! It was our first time trying a cigar. The owner took his time to explain the cigar and the process of smoking one. We paired the cigars with some wonderful Martinis and closed out the evening at Highland. We will definitely return.
