Bobby's Jazz Club & Cigar Bar

Have any of you guys been to Bobby's Jazz Club & Cigar Bar?

Being a fan of both jazz and cigars, I'm gonna check this place out soon. It's at 1140 S. Paca St.

The club's website says you can smoke cigars on the second floor and outer deck because the business is technically a tobacco retailer.


It must have opened fairly recently, because there was construction there until a few months ago.

I'll let you know how it is when I go.

I live right by there, it is a big and open space, but you never hear anything about it. They even have a deck, nice!!!

It's behind my house in Pigtown, and I have been a few times. It's a nice friendly bar, and the drinks are poured nice and stiff. The cost is not terribly bad either, and the proprietors are nice folk.

As for cigars, I haven't tried since the ban went into effect. They had a nice yet small collection of stogies to choose from.

this looks interesting!! may have to ride over for a night on the deck!!

I busted your chops awhile back to broaden your horizons. Sniff, sniff, my little boy went out there and did it. I love you bro! HEY you're my new bro. BTW - sarcasm all over this blog. Went to schaefers, loved the trough, you know Tyson's bar has the same trough on the bottom of it as well. I don't wan t to know where it leads, Now head off into the unknown google up a hood, find dive bars and go. I said go GO, Google now!

Someone should investigate the trough that runs around the bar at Dead End Salloon. Someone once attempted to explain (why it exists) it to me but I was dressed as a werewolf and a bit too ....distinguished to remember.

looking forward to hearing about this place. I had never heard of it. Always nice to see new a jazz bar open.

Bobby's is a nice upscale place.
Lots of nice looking professional gentleman are there on Wednesday night which I think is the best night at Bobby's. The deck is used for smoking however he deck is beautiful for just enjoying the evening air.
If you're looking for a nice place to unwind after work look no further Bobby's is that place.The jazz bands are always nice.

Now the excellent music in Cuba is Cuba’s country music, specifically the teenager, Huasteco, Salsa and Meringue. I enjoy the Cuban music and our Montecristo cigars and Cuban wine…With our three best friends….

So first-timer at Bobby's. Went to hear Kevin E. Robinson (KERQ), for my birthday. A surprise pick by my lady Chris. This is by far one of the BEST kept secrets of living around Baltimore. Very cool vibe, a place you feel like you've been a part of your whole music-loving life. And being able to chill outside on the deck with a quality cigar, a favorite beverage and good people...what more can be said.
We tried a few appetizers, best sweet potato fries I've ever had. As for KERQ, there is no one I've ever heard live who can make you actually see and feel the music. 5 stars.
