Location: Exceptional
Buckhead Cigar resides in the back of Dantanna’s Bar and Grill. Both are located in the ritzy Buckhead area of Atlanta right next to Lenox Square Mall. Walking distance to the MARTA (train), and many hotels. But the biggest perk of the location is that Dantanna’s provides a full menu and bar to the customers of the cigar shop.

Staff: Exceptional
The two owners Mike and Boram are characters. Both have been in the industry a long time, and are extremely knowledgeable. They are super classy, and at the same time, take no shit from anyone. One of the biggest draws to this place! Just follow the rules and you’ll be fine!

Stock: Exceptional
Not only are they a Diamond Crown lounge, they also are one of only 3 shops in the area that carry Davidoff. The selection is great, the humidor is large and well maintained. You’ll find mostly higher end smokes in this shop. You won’t find any bundles, 2nds, or knockoffs in here. Although the image doesn’t show it, the guys have recently installed a huge island of shelves in the center of the humidor. On one side the Davidoff/Zino products the other Arturo Fuente and Diamond Crown.

Lounge: Exceptional
Spacious, with seating for 36. 3 big and comfy leather couches, 4 LCD HDTV’s, and two huge HD projectors. What more could you want? Oh… did I mention the full menu from the Bar next door?

Overall Opinion: Exceptional (go figure)
Buckhead Cigar Club has become my favorite shop, one of only 2 in the entire city that I will actually hang out in. Mike and Boram are great, helpful, and generous guys. Having a Bar and Grill in the other room is a tremendous plus. Tho food prices are a little on the spendy side, you can’t argue with the ability to order a Session Lager to go along with your Davidoff Puro Belicoso. Also, even though the shop closes at 8pm on Sunday. The boys typically herf it up at a couple nearby cigar friendly bars after close. Great atmosphere, great lounge, great cigars… need anything else?

“You never know who you will run into when there. It may be a Superbowl winner, future Bowl winner, NBA Champion, writers, musicians, CEOs, lobbyists, Iron Chefs, an unemployed photographer, stay at home dads, cigar luminaries, weaseling cigar reviewers, movie stars(the guy in the trunk of The Hangover)…. but you can always count on a good time.” -Nick858
