'Modern day speakeasy' 109 & Co. to replace Maduro

Maduro Cigar Bar
at 109 Main St. is going to shut down in mid-November to make way for a new bar, 109 & Co. Owner Michael Peace hastens to add that the cigar bar isn’t being snuffed out, but will eventually reopen in a different space, and he hopes that space is downtown.

109 & Co. will be a stogy-free “modern day speakeasy,” Peace said; the only smoke at 109 & Co. will be in the taste of the aged cocktails that Peace creates himself in oak barrels. Fans will enjoy an expanded cocktail menu, along with favorites like the 43 Decatur (Basil Hayden’s bourbon mixed with two “high-end liquors,”) and his barrel-aged Manhattans. Peace will spend three weeks redecorating to create an intimate ambiance, with “old-fashioned-style wallpaper,” dim lighting and leather chairs and couches. “We will deep clean everything so there’s no hint of smoke,” he promised. He hasn’t got the bar food “nailed down yet.”

The Maduro’s staff will be kept on. “Moving Maduro’s will allow us to build from the ground up, to make sure there are no apartments above us,” Peace said. He hopes to open 109 & Co. on Dec. 5, the anniversary of the passage of the 21st Amendment, which repealed Prohibition.
