Southside Cigar & Tobacco | Cigar Friendly: Indianapolis, IN

A Wednesday morning in Indianapolis, a ten-minute drive south of the city center: four older men have taken a seat at the card table in front of the walk-in humidor and are immersed in their game. Opposite, in the lounge area, a small group talks about the most interesting offers from the local auto parts shops. The walls are decorated with cigar posters, boxes and souvenir photos of various festivals.

Jeff Bryant, the owner of the homely smoke shop, welcomes the guests who come in … he knows his customers by name, knows what to offer them. Everyone is here to enjoy the first cigar of the day in Indianapolis, which is not exactly a tobacco-friendly city.
