Nestled in a small shopping area on South Broadway, south of Denver, is a deceptively large tobacco shop stuffed with pipes, pipe tobacco, cigars, and lounges. Edward’s has been doing business since 1969 so it is no surprise that they have a great deal of knowledge and an impressive array of products.
To get a parking space in front of Edwards is unlikely, however, they have ample parking behind the store that is well marked and is easy to access. For those parking in the back, there is easy entrance to the tobacco shop, smoking lounges and patio.
The tobacco store features hardwood floors and wood counters that are reminiscent of an old general store or a saloon. The entire front portion of the store is dedicated to pipes, bulk pipe tobacco, and accessories. The humidor seems hidden with only a small window looking into it and a door that faces into the hallway that runs the length of the building. When you step into the perfectly humidified humidor a slight drip of drool may begin to form on your bottom lip. The selection is impressive and the humidor is spacious and well organized with big companies on one wall (Altadis and General Cigar) and smaller, privately held companies on the opposite wall. Davidoff products lay claim to an entire wall, with another wall for budget-friendly cigars. There are four center pillars that showcase cigarillos and flavored cigars.
If you are able to pull yourself out of the humidor and continue walking down the hall, you will see 3 smaller humidors set into the wall. One holds a great selection of tinned pipe tobacco, another holds bulk pipe tobacco, and the third is full of cigarettes. Further down the hall is a drink station with coffee and water. At the end of the hall is a small lounge that flows into another small lounge. Both lounges have seating and tables, as well as memorabilia on the walls, which lend to a den away from home feel. The last lounge is a bit smaller than the other two and has more of a cabin aura. To access this lounge, you must walk outside through the patio, which features a large table, fire pit, and waterfall.
The employees at Edward’s are not quick to interrupt your browsing but when they see you need help they are able to offer information on all of their products. Employees are honest and straightforward with customers. Edward’s is able to offer a wide variety of products to its customers as well as comfortable places to enjoy that cigar or pipe bowl.
