The Godfather Bistro Cigar Bar | Shelby Township, (MI)

Dream of an ultimate cigar/bistro/sports hybrid of a bar.  That’s what you get when you visit the enthralling Godfather Bistro Cigar Bar in Shelby Township, Michigan, just North of Detroit.  This is a party utopia for the cigar smoker! 

The entire wall on the left of the main space is lined with cabinet humidors which are stocked with delectable leafy treats and the center of the establishment has a nice size wrap-around bar stocked with all your favorite spirits.  A nice wine list along with beers and meads on tap make this libation heaven for those who like to match up their cigar with an adult beverage.  The Dadou brothers; Brandon and Triston along with Omher Sawa are your hosts with the most at this party destination.

There is also a wonderful menu with delicious bistro-style food.  From a steak to a quesadilla or a burger, there are many ways to satisfy your hunger.  Many big screen TVs surround the place so all of your favorite sports events are never missed.  There is also a small lounge and bar upstairs for private functions, which happen on a regular basis. 

The selection of beers, wines and other spirits here are mind-boggling!  I was especially taken with a local mead that was poured for me that was pure heaven!  There are many craft beers on tap from all over The Motor City as well as other parts of Michigan.  The wines are plentiful as well as the spirits.  All of your favorite top-shelf bourbons, scotches and tequilas are available to accentuate your experience.

So on a gorgeous summer or fall day in Michigan, have Brandon open up the garage doors on the South side of the building and sit outside on the patio and enjoy a top-shelf spirit and beautifully constructed cigar.  Out of all the cigar lounges you visit in your life, Godfather will definitely rent some space in your heart!  I was there only once and I can’t wait to go back with some friends and party hard on some random Sunday while we watch football and smoke and drink and eat to our heart’s content!
