The team behind C.Gars Ltd and Turmeaus have brought a touch of 1920’s glamour to the city with their latest, speakeasy inspired venture, The Puffin’ Rooms and Turmeaus Late Hour Cigar Shop & Sampling Lounge.
Those walking in a hurry down Liverpool’s Old Hall Street could be forgiven for missing The Puffin’ Rooms. The entrance is subtle and unassuming. However, anyone too distracted to notice it on their daily commute to and from nearby Moorfields station, will miss out on something very special indeed.
Puffin’ Rooms houses a bar alongside a live music venue, a delicious kitchen and of course, Turmeaus Late Hour Cigar Shop & Sampling Lounge.
The sampling lounge has an extremely impressive (and very quiet) smoke filtration system, with 30 air changes an hour.
The Turmeaus Late Hour Cigar Store & Sampling Lounge offers an extensive range of Cuban and New World Cigars, including rare limited editions. Not only is it air conditioned but it has client humidified lockers for you to store cigars you purchase with us. If ever you are struggling with what to buy then resident cigar specialist David is often on hand to assist.
The food in Puffin’ Rooms is small sharing-plates with an emphasis on quality and is presented with a keen eye for detail. There is also a vast selection of whisky sold by the dram and an innovative and playful cocktail list, with something for all palates.
Resident pianist and singer Victoria Sharpe says, “I’ve got the best seat in the house. Sat at the piano watching people’s jaws drop as they’re served their drinks.”
Before adding, “There’s nothing like it in the city.”
In truth there is nothing quite like Puffin’ Rooms anywhere in the U.K.
The Turmeaus Late Hour Cigar Store & Sampling Lounge is accessible from the bar and provides a specialist cigar shop and sampling lounge that is open from 5pm – 11pm 6 days a week and 3pm till 9pm on Sundays.
There is no doubt that local Liverpudlians will quickly take this exciting new venue into the hearts. However, it is a venue well worth making a trip to visit. Simply not to be missed.
