Meet Steven Harris, owner of John R Row, the entire building that houses’ North ends‘ newest Black-owned Rosemary restaurant and Byrd’s Cigar lounge. In partnership with Detroit’s own Chef Max Hardy, the duo celebrated one year in business in November of a new cool space to relax, smoke, socialize and dine will be the next “IT” spot for Detroiters and visitors alike.
John R Row Building
Downstairs of the John R Row building housed Rosemary Restaurant and upstairs is a private cigar lounge called Byrds. Very fine cigars and all of the best spirits in a community that’s literally five minutes from everywhere in Detroit on John R in the North End.
What’s also great about this establishment is that it caters to both men and female cigar smokers and those that are brand new to smoking. Because while the atmosphere of cigar bars is chill and inviting smoking Cigars for newcomers can be intimidating. Before you can enjoy a cigar, Byrd’s offers opportunities for patrons to learn how to cut and light a cigar the right way.
John R Row is located at 9421 John R Street Detroit, MI 48202.
