Holy Smokes Cigar and Pipe Shop in Jacksonville, FL

Post by tim_witten » Thu Apr 12, 2018 7:45 pm

I was in Jacksonville, FL for a work conference; I was blessed to find Holy Smokes Cigars. The owner, Mo Leverett, was a great host. I was made to feel welcome by him and all the regulars at the store. He carries a great selection and had a wide variety of boutiques that I had not seen.

He had a nice selection of estate pipes, several nice Tim West’s and Wiley’s caught my eye.

I only spent 2 afternoons there; but I can tell you that the store is an extension of his life in Christ and musical ministry.

If you are near the area stop by; he will make you feel welcome and would appreciate the support.

PS: Great Shop Dogs!

Looks like a fun place to visit. Perhaps, I will visit there, the next time I go back to Jacksonville.

I was in Jacksonville 5 years ago and worked hard to find a couple of cigar shops close to the hotel. I made do, spending time at 2 of the Island Girl shops, not at all close to the hotel. This shop looks like it is just across the river a bit and very close to where we stayed. Maybe its kind of new or maybe I just missed it...Next time I am there...

So they were not there when I was. Can't wait to go back and pay a visit.

Mo has only been open a bit over 2 years; one of the regulars said the Island Girl owner had sold his shops; I think one out near the beaches is still open.

Neat! Thanks for sharing; I looked up his albums on iTunes; haven’t pulled the trigger on one yet.

The shop in Neptune Beach ranks among the nicest shops I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. It was a full wine and beer lounge with a huge selection of sticks.
