Cigars, Whiskey & Blues

A Premium Social Experience

September 29, 2023

We would like to welcome you to the Essex Steam Train platform “speakeasy” where we will help you explore premium whiskey tastings curated especially for our annual event – back by popular demand!  Last year was so much fun that nobody wanted it to end… we extended the event to 3 hours, per your request!

Guest whiskey vendors invite you to visit their tables, chat about, and try samples of their offerings before you gather in cozy seats around the fire pits, relax and take in a live blues set performed for you by the Grammy Award Winning members of the Bart Bryant Band.

Stop by the appetizer, entree, and dessert buffet before you make your way to the cigar rolling table to watch the artistry of the fine cigar roller from Up in Smoke as they create a personal indulgence for you.

Drinks are also available for purchase from the station bar. Take your time and enjoy every element of this one of a kind, premier, 3 hour social event at the Essex Steam Train.
