Churchill Bar, Denver, Colorado
Smoking in Denver likely conjures up images of weed, given Colorado’s legal recreational pot status. But if you’d choose a cigar and a small-batch bourbon over a joint, find your retreat at Churchill’s — arguably the favorite cigar bar of locals. It’s tucked inside the historic Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver. The menu is sophisticated, too, with offerings like slow-roasted prime rib and Rocky Mountain trout.
