Good selection of cigars. Lounge was 15 bucks for a day pass with glasses and ice available. They did have a good amount of seating available.
Great place for pipe tobacco
Great selection of cigars and other tobacco products. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is the oldest family owned tobacco shop in the country.
My home away from home. Nuff said
An absolutely phenomenal experience! Doug, Ethan and Harold were all exceptionally helpful and didn't try to upsell us or even push a sale. Doug guided us to what fit our individual styles, smoking preferences and even personality. I can't recommend Iwan Ries & Co enough, whether you're a tobacco connoisseur or a new enthusiast looking to get into pipe tobacco or cigars!
Great place, also I highly encourage everybody to use the lounge, worth it!!
Love the old school feel.
Awesome place, staff is always super helpful! ‘A woman is a woman, but a cigar is a smoke.’
Favorite smoke shop. Such a great selection and great people
Great selection. Friendly service.
Super chill, laid back vibes. There are a few rooms here and they do host private events. I believe there is a membership fee if you live in the area but this has such an exclusive feel once inside. The building is super historic but renovated to be chic while keeping the rich past present. The ceiling is beautiful and they have some really old school phone booths that you can check out. Filled with plus leather couches and a bunch of different seats. This place is BYOB though they do supply ice and cups. In Chicago you can buy liquor from Walgreens so pick some up before going there. We bought a bottle of Jack Daniels Honey which went so super smooth with our cigars. I believe you pay an entry fee and buy your own cigars ( they have plenty ). This is a great place to take a load off. The owner or host was really knowledgeable about the history of the building and made us feel super welcomed. I will def be back.
I was disappointed in an order, but Iwan Ries corrected the problem and made it right. So all is well. Thanks.
A time honored institution. Even the building radiates cigar aroma before you step into the establishment. My preferred place for fair priced pipe purchases. And a fair excuse to step back into time.
One of my favorite places in Chicago. The shop has an enormous variety of quality cigars, pipes, pipe tobacco, and accessories. The staff is always welcoming and helpful, willing assist you in finding exactly what you're looking for. The low-key atmosphere of the lounge makes for the perfect place to relax and enjoy a smoke.
Truly an original. An amazing pipe (and cigar) store. Not many left anymore.
Every time I've gone in, I've been impressed. Not only with the variety of pipes and tobacco, but with one particular gentleman who works there. I'd just like to say thank you to Douglas. He is extremely knowledgeable and has helped me choose pipes, tobaccos, and provided some of the most stimulating conversation I've had in a long time. Thanks for everything, Douglas! Looking forward to our next encounter. Joe
Amazing selection and great prices. We will definitely be back.
Great experience. Amazing selection and customer service.
Very cool place to sit, relax and have a good smoke
Among the oldest and best pipe and cigar shops in the country!
