Bulldog Pipe & Cigar was founded in 2001 by Ken Smitheman and was acquired by Paul Banducci & his wife Mary in early 2014. Since that time inventory has more than tripled, and when the Bulldog Lounge opened in October 2015, the square footage doubled! 

Our mission is to build and expand the premium tobacco culture and community in the area. 


Thank you all for the years of support. 

Thank you for visiting our site. 

The Bulldog Lounge time at the Silver Lake Mall has officially come to a close as of November 30th. But we are keeping the Bulldog dream alive!

As many of you are aware due to the legal issues the Bulldog faced over this past year the Silver Lake Mall management terminated our lease forcing us to look for another venue and to pursue other alternatives. We are happy to report that the legal issues are nearly concluded and this chapter, a learning experience for sure, is finally about to close. We are about to face our final legal sanction which will result in a suspension of our license to sell alcohol between the dates of Wednesday December 9, 2020 and Friday December 18, 2020.

We are excited to announce that we will be launching an online retail service including monthly subscriptions, an online store and more for our tobacco products and member swag. We are hard at work pursuing our next steps to best serve you and will keep you all updated though our website and social media network. We are also actively seeking a new venue to reopen the shop itself, and Providence willing, that will be sometime soon in the very near future.

Thank you all for your continuing support, we could not ask for a better set of friends, customers and members. You guys are the best. We are looking forward to this new chapter and all of the exciting things to come!

Stay smokey friends and keep in touch. It's never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.
