I was pretty impressed with this place, though not necessarily from a beer-drinking standpoint. What this really is, is a full service tobaconist and liquor store, with a giant and fairly-swanky bar attached. Really its more like two bars. The cool part is, the liquor store and tobacco shop are open as late as the bar is, and anything purchased in one part of Churchill's can prettymuch be consumed in the others.

The place seems to cater to a more middle-aged professional crowd. Women were noticably in the minority when I was there. Both shops are well stocked and staffed with gentlemen eager to help you and though the bar was crowded that night, we never waited long for drinks. The lighting is low and soft, though not too dim. There are lots of leather couches and fancy-looking tables.

As I said, this is a cigar store, and the place is pretty damn smokey. Also on a crowded night, over half the patrons will likey be waving lit cigars around. This can make a trip to the bathroom seem like some tribal initiation ritual, and I did not escape "The Gauntlet of Fire" without a burn on my shirt.

However if you risk these minor annoyances, you will be treated to a nice range of beers on tap and a modest but esoteric bottle selection, and some great people-watching.
