New Cigar Shop in Town
I had the chance to go check out Tabak Co. a cool and swanky new cigar bar in Downtown Springfield. Located at 311 Park Central West, this former sports bar has turned into a classy, lounge-style space without the presumptuous air of an old cigar club. It’s ideal for after-work chill time or a great space to host a client.
One of the owners, Cody, walked the space with me as he explained the renovations made to the space, how he designed the humidor to keep the cigars under the right humidity and temperature as well as the newly restored bar for classic, pre-Prohibition era cocktails.
Tabak Co. has a lounge area with big leather couches where old fashioned and Manhattan cocktails can be imbibed, some window-front workspace for when you need a break from the office space and want a change of scenery, and an outside patio for you to taste and enjoy your choice of cigar or new pipe tobacco.
