The Owl Shop, 268 College Street, New Haven, CT 06510

The Owl Shop, a New Haven Landmark, has a long history as an institution that has grown beyond its current plush cigar lounge reputation. Opening in 1934, The Owl Shop began originally as a bookstore, evolved into to a world-renowned tobacco shop and is now also sought out for its music, food and cocktails.

 Bartender: Bill Raffaele

  • 3.5 oz Ron Zacapa 23 Year Old Rum
