Customer Reviews

Very unique , fun place . The history is amazing. Did not meet any ghosts but was still a great time . I have recommended this place and experience to many family and friends. I did not know of this place before Groupon. I like the unique items Groupon offers. I plan to return to Shaker Cigar Bar soon. Won't be able to stay long though. Smoke allergy.

Really enjoyed the tour. Very interesting and historical. The bar was quaint and the staff was very fast and friendly. The absinth drinks were expensive but had to be tried. Thanks for turning me on to a new place to go on the weekends!!
