Love cigars? We have you covered
With all the hustle and bustle Atlanta generates daily, relaxing with a good cigar in a cozy, club-like atmosphere can serve as the perfect escape. After doing some research, lighter in hand, we found a quartet of lounges specializing in selling “sticks” to enjoy in bliss.
BUCKHEAD CIGAR LOUNGE
Located inside Dantanna’s restaurant directly across from Lenox Square, Buckhead Cigar Lounge boasts posh leather seating, flat-screen televisions, a 300-square-foot humidor and a staff of experts who will help make visits that much more pleasurable. Delectable fare and a full bar just a few steps away separate this establishment from the rest. Memberships are available for aficionados.

CIGAR CITY CLUB
The cigar smoking experience is taken seriously at the Cigar City Club, where the decor is inspired by the speakeasies of yesteryear, complete with retro art lining the walls, crystal chandeliers, a baby grand piano, cigar lockers for members and wood paneling throughout, including at the cocktail bar. Be sure to dress like an executive; the strict dress code keeps things classy.
5006 Roswell Road
Since remodeling its already ritzy Buckhead location in late 2009, the 15,000-square-foot Havana Club further established itself as one of the most revered nightlife destinations in the Southeast. Many don’t know it used to be solely an intimate cigar bar and humidor when it first opened in ’96. Now consistently electrifying thanks to top DJs spinning Latin music, a chic design and some of Atlanta’s most gorgeous partygoers dancing the night away, Havana Club has become the city’s most stimulating location to fire up a stogie.

LA CASA DEL TABACO CIGAR LOUNGE
Whether you’re an amateur or a cigar devotee, La Casa del Tabaco pledges to serve, educate and please anyone who walks through the door. Spacious and down to earth with a plethora of amenities, including free Wi-Fi, two high-def TVs equipped with various sports packages and a large walk-in humidor, it’s no wonder this place has been around for almost 10 years.
