Yesterday morning a car smashed into Cigars on Sixth, which we called the "ultimate man cave" when we awarded it Best Cigar Bar in the Best of Denver 2013 (which was the last year we gave that award). Although the cigar store has seating just on the other side of what had been the front wall and windows, there were no injuries to patrons or the driver of the Subaru. The same can't be said for the store or the empty truck parked outside, which belongs to a couple from Kansas visiting their daughter.
The Denver Police Department arrived quickly at the scene. Keep reading for our Best of Denver award to Cigars on Sixth.
Cigars on Sixth is the ultimate man cave — decorated in dark wood, antique chairs and a flat-screen TV, and stuffed full of every cigar- and pipe-related knickknack you can imagine, not to mention a set of antlers and a fake mounted fish. Here you'll find old boys in suits and ties, lawyers, accountants, politicians and Hawaiian shirt-clad silverbacks trading throaty stories and jokes at just about any time of day. The humidor is well-stocked, as are the shelves of ashtrays, humidors, cutters and other paraphernalia. Wanna feel even more manly? Make your way through the thick air to the back, where you can get a shave and a haircut from the one-seat barbershop.
