Luke Bryan Launches Cigar Shop in Florida
Luke Bryan has given up on his annual beach shows in Florida, but the Sunshine State still holds a piece of his heart. The country superstar recently opened a cigar shop in Santa Rosa Beach.
According to its website, Shore Thing Cigars is located on the Hub 30A on Watersound Beach. The store bills itself as a "lifestyle lounge, cold beer, premium cigar experience."
The Walton Sun reports that Shore Thing Cigars features "a walk-in humidor with hundreds of different kinds of hand-rolled cigars imported from the Dominican Republic and Honduras." Amenities include scented air, an indoor conversation area, a patio with sofas and seven flat-screen TVs. Patrons can enjoy the cigars on the patio, or smoke inside with a glass of champagne, wine or beer. The wine selection includes 15 different labels, with local wine served by the glass, while others are sold by the bottle.
"It's a lifestyle lounge," the store's co-owner, Paul Copeland, tells the Sun. "And, with the wine and champagne, we are focusing on the higher end ones."
Copeland met Bryan a year ago when the country superstar came into his cigar bar in Nashville. They became fishing buddies before deciding to partner for the new venture.
"This is similar to my place in Nashville, but with more of a Florida feel," he says.
Copeland adds that Bryan, who owns a home in South Walton, will probably drop in often, but he never knows when to expect him.
