Luke Bryan recently celebrated the grand opening of the second location of Shore Thing Cigars.

The country superstar, who co-owns the establishment with Tobacconist of the Year and three-time Davidoff Golden Band Award winner Paul Copeland, stopped by the new location to sign some autographs and raise a toast. 

Where Is Shore Thing Cigars Located?

The brand-new luxury cigar and cocktail lounge is now open at 4780 Wharf Parkway Suite F – 101  in Orange Beach, Alabama as part of The Wharf entertainment district. This location was reportedly hand-picked by Bryan and Copeland because of its connection to live music (with The Wharf Amphitheater nearby) and its association with championship sport fishing.

“The Orange Beach area has always been an amazing place for music, fishing, and beach life,” the five-time Entertainer of the Year shared. “The opportunity for Shore Thing Cigars in that area just seems like a perfect fit. A gathering place people can get together, relax, and enjoy a drink and a cigar. The Wharf has always been one of my favorite venues and I am honored to have Shore Thing Cigars in the area.”

According to a release, the second location of Shore Thing Cigars will have a similar feel to the original store, located at 7 Hub Lane in beautiful Watersound, Florida. Patrons can expect to be greeted with a refreshing coastal chic ambiance with music and purified, scented air, making the store appealing to everyone, whether they are cigar enthusiasts or someone who enjoys delightful cocktails.  

Shore Thing Cigars will feature karaoke nights every Friday and offer daily happy hour specials from 5 to 7 pm. Local residents can indulge in an extended “all day, every day happy hour.”

As part of their new venue at The Wharf, Shore Thing Cigars has established a “backstage” area. Here, guests can purchase annual memberships for access to a private lounge equipped with secure lockers featuring a digitally controlled humidity system for storing cigars. Backstage memberships come with a gift card, exclusive invitations to private events, opportunities for liquor and cigar pairings, and trips to cigar factories and fields.

How Did The Cigar and Cocktail Lounge Get Its Name?

Shore Thing Cigars gets its name from Bryan’s song, “Shore Thing,” which was featured on one of his Spring Break EP releases. The track was written by Bryan with Michael Carter and Cole Swindell

Fans may not realize this, but Bryan has been passionate about cigars for several years. He has two custom-blended cigars crafted specifically for him by Davidoff Cigars. These cigars are tailored to his personal taste and are stored in his private humidors both at home and while traveling.

Fans can experience Shore Thing Cigars by visiting one of the two locations now.
