Citywalk News for December

At one of the Ferguson CityWalk gatherings, I asked Mike Palmer: “So who is this Montrey?” In my mind this was the owner of the cigar lounge located at 401 S. Florissant Avenue. Mike explained that the name “Montrey’s” was selected because the one hundred year old house in which the business is situated. Built by Joseph Montrey of Ferguson, he and his wife raised a large family in this home, and owned Montrey’s Bar less than a block away at 500 S Florissant (now Marleys).


Mike Palmer was marketing the property for a lease. Someone approached him interested in converting the space into a private cigar club. The interested party did not pursue the idea, but after researching similar places within the St Louis area as well as the cigar market, he and his business partner found this would provide a unique destination and the vision for the Ferguson Special Business District.


Montrey’s offers a selection of roughly one hundred varieties of cigars at any given time, and the selection changes every month or so. They also have one of the best spirit collections around: whiskeys, bourbons, scotches and cognacs offered at different price levels. In addition, there is live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Montrey’s has a private members’ lounge: a few remaining memberships are currently available. Cutting edge air filtration system inside keeps the smoke from becoming overwhelming. There is a large patio in the front and back of building.


Need gift ideas for a cigar aficionado? Mike offers a few suggestions: “We have cigars that can be sold by the box. We can order special cigars by the box: there are thousands of types of cigars, if someone has a favorite. We also have our very own branded ‘Montrey’s’ cigar in stock.” Furthermore, they have cigar accessories for sale on site such as butane lighters, cutters, punches, and torches. Or what about that membership opportunity? Don’t smoke, but like to do crafts? Montrey’s makes cigar boxes available for one dollar a piece.


And while we are talking about smoke… Welcome back to Ferguson, Red’s One and Only BBQ! Red’s is smoking up a storm 304 S. Florissant Road. The grand opening was November 11.
