Where would the Angus Barn be without its contingent of tobacco enthusiasts who have made our humidor a top destination for selecting premium cigars? On January 1, 2010, after two previous attempts by the North Carolina legislature, a new law prohibiting smoking in bars and restaurants became effective. While some cheered the law, plenty were shocked. For those who still relish cigars during social discourse, we offer a gift: the Meat Locker at the Angus Barn.
The challenge was how to accommodate the Barn's loyal patrons who smoke and still respect the new law. Using a pre existing space on the outside of the restaurant overlooking Glenwood Avenue, Van eyed the prospects of converting this remote area once used for meat refrigeration into an open-air smoking lounge and patio in the summer of 2009. She turned to master carpenter Dan Callahan to work his magic. Between Van's imagination and Dan's construction skills, smoking patrons of the Barn would soon find a home where their appreciation for tobacco, great food and spirits flourished.
The Angus Barn is proud to offer an extensive list of premium cigars to our guests. Please ask for your favorite selection. Listed below are a few of the quality brands we try to stock at all times. Please note: like a vintage wine, some selections may be out of stock due to availability. Also, look for our Cigar Steward's specials. Our selection includes: Arturo Fuente, Dunhill, Macanudo, Savinelli, Ashton, La Gloria Cubana, Partagas, Carlos & Torano just to name a few.
