Panthers QB Cam Newton set to open cigar bar-lounge

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NFL star Cam Newton is opening his first business — but it won’t be found in Charlotte. Instead, he’s going home to Atlanta to do it.

The Carolina Panthers’ three-time Pro Bowler is opening a lounge-restaurant concept called Fellaship in the Castleberry Point building in Castleberry Hill, located blocks from Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The establishment is to feature fine dining, cigar smoking and socializing, and it’s dubbed as an “experience where class and audaciousness collide.”

Cam and his brother, C.J. Newton, will oversee the concept development.

The venue is hosting a soft opening for Super Bowl weekend but will then close until a permanent opening in March.
