Greetings! I’m in Atlanta and I’m just now coming back to pipes after a 10 year hiatus. Lots of great places for cigars, but I’m hunting for a pipe shop myself.
One of the best places to enjoy your pipe is Dantana’s near Lenox. Excellent steakhouse with a cigar bar in the back. I don’t know if they sell pipe tobacco, but you can enjoy your pipe there. They’ll serve you drinks there as long as you’d like.
Puff’N’Stuff in Tucker. Don’t be thrown by the name. Their selection is quite nice.
Tobacco World in Marietta is also pretty great.
Places I can recommend from my cigar days, but I’ve got to circle back for pipe tobacco. Here’s my short list:
Cigar City Club
Highland Cigar Co.
Davidoff of Geneva
Manuel’s Tavern is a smoke-friendly legendary stop and kind of a must-see if you happen to be into Democratic Party political history. If you do not happen to lean that way, might not be high on your list.
Thanks Peterson! Unfortunately, I ended up being so busy at work that I never had any time to get out for a visit to any of your recommended pipe stores. Didn't have a rental car. So, that made getting around an inconvenience.
Thanks for the effort and guidance. Next time I'm down there, I'll hopefully have some time to get out and visit these places!
That is so very sad. When I first started smoking a pipe in 1979, there was Royal Cigar downtown, Dunhill and a great Tinderbox at Lennox Square, good Tinderbox shops at Cumberland, Perimeter, Northlake and Southlake malls, an Edwards in Buckhead and one at Clarkston. Oh, and Tobacco Village in a center across from Perimeter Mall.
Except for the Dunhill store, where one person was the only one who knew the least bit about pipes, the owners/managers were knowledgeable about what they stocked, which varied from place to place. At the Lennox Square Tinderbox when Al Mandel owned it, grey market Castellos could be seen by the dozens. Royal Cigar had annual Charatan trunk shows where you could see everything from Coronations and on down the line to Belvederes. Some of the best smoking pipes I owned were Edwards house brands made from Algerian Briar, fills and all. If you wanted one without fills, they had free hands made by some guy named Randy Wiley. It was a competitive, well served, market. The space devoted to cigars was, except for the Dunhill shop, minor by today’s standards.
