If you know even the slightest bit about football, you know who Cam Newton is. The Carolina Panthers QB is known for his skills and character both on and off the field. He's also known for being a total cigar enthusiast, which led him to open his very own cigar lounge in Atlanta that just had its ribbon cut earlier this year.
That's right, the Carolina Panthers star (and 2019 Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee) chose his hometown to open up a new cigar lounge called Fellaship. The bar opened in May 2019 near the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. It's no secret that Cam loves his cigars and has often been spotted puffing away at the high-class smokes.
The culture and history surrounding cigars is as rich as the smoke they produce. Cam decided to capture those vibes and incorporate them into Fellaship for a super authentic 1950s "rat pack" feel mixed with an elegant Prohibition Era theme, but with a modern twist.
The official website's photo gallery gives a better idea of the look and feel of this speakeasy-style restaurant and lounge. We're talking fedoras and whiskey neats here.
The cocktails are both classy and classic with delicious craft elixirs like an Old Fashioned, Side Car and Passion Fruit Mojito.
Treat yourself to a mouth-watering meal with choices like barbacoa tacos, crispy sesame shrimp, prime rib or seafood pasta.
If you're feeling fancy and want an excuse to dress up and maybe step outside the box to try a cigar, definitely plan on hitting up Fellaship with your gals (or dudes) and maybe even meet a young Frank Sinatra (or Marilyn Monroe).
Who knows how often Cam frequents his lounge, but with his avid admiration for cigars, he probably comes down to ATL a bit so you may spot him.
Address: 110 Centennial Olympic Park Dr Suite 102-104, Atlanta, GA
