NICHOLASVILLE, Ky., Apr. 27, 2019 — The EOP-designed Jake’s Cigar Bar opened today with hundreds celebrating the new location with cigars and bourbon. A historic barn that once filled the Brannon Crossings site provided the design inspiration.
“EOP’s objective was to illustrate the story of tobacco and bourbon,” comments Kevin Gough, AIA, EOP’s principal in charge of the project. “From the color palette to the club-feel layout, from shou sugi ban-treated tables to the custom chandelier designed to represent drying tobacco. Every element of the design contributes to this story.”
The new location doubles the seating from the former location, with even more seating on the patio. A private mezzanine level with private patio overlooks the main cigar lounge. A custom, linear humidor for maximum showcasing lines one wall of the space. Outside, guests can enjoy several activities from bocce to cornhole.
