What is a cigar lounge?
Better known as cigar bars, cigar lounges are typical places where you can smoke your cigar among amateurs and accompany it with a delicious spirit. Since the 90s, these establishments have seen their popularity skyrocket, because smoking in public places is prohibited.
While some cigar bars are totally independent, others are an integral part of establishments such as restaurants or bars, in which a room is dedicated to cigar lovers and cigar accessories.
