Turmeaus Puffin’ Rooms, Liverpool

Situated below The Albany on Old Hall Street, Turmeaus cigar bar offers a wide range of whiskies and some of the world’s best cigars together with late night entertainment and cuisine.

Brock Carmichael was asked to redesign the space available to maximise the facilities on offer for its discerning visitors. Challenges included fitting in a kitchen area and filtration system. The sampling lounge has an impressive (and very quiet) smoke filtration system with 30 air changes an hour.

The new facilities have a humidor to house the cigars, a pipe and pipe tobacco area, a whisky room and whisky lounge, two cigar sampling lounges, and a smokers’ accessories room. The first phase included a retail cigar shop, whisky shop and cigar sampling lounge.
