Jenuwine Cigar Lounge is still one of the best places in metro Detroit to pick up a stogie

Jenuwine Cigar Lounge | 27754 Woodward Ave., Royal Oak; 248-291-5634; Open: 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday

A family operation, Jenuwine Cigar Lounge harks back to the late '40s when the shop was originally located in Center Line. Then it was called J & J Wholesale and it was run by Ed Jenuwine and his three brothers. For 42 years the brothers ran the operation that included vending wholesale candy, cigarettes, tobacco, and groceries to local businesses. Many years and changes to the business later, in 2004 the family opened a small humidor stocked with premium cigars. Ten years and three locations after that, Jenuwine Cigar Lounge is one of the best places to pick up a fine stogie in the metro area. Their Royal Oak location is the newest of the three and offers a large humidor stocked with both rare and limited cigars as well as your everyday smokes. Stop in and expect friendly service and enough cigars to make your head spin.

Along with their fully stocked humidor, they also offer cigar accessories like decorative (and enormous) ashtrays, beautiful cigar boxes, cutters, and more. This location also features a lounge area where guests can enjoy a newly purchased cigar, the entertainment of a big screen TV, and a fresh beverage.
