U.S. Taxes Take a Hit With Shift to Cigars

01/21/2017 0 Comment(s) Electronic Cigar News,

Since my e-cigars and I haven't been kicked out of a traditional cigar lounge yet, I'm counting on all cigar bars to be cool with electronic cigars. So what are some of the best places to find other cigar enthusiasts hanging out…vapers and/or smokers? Where you can enjoy an electronic cigar and vape in peace, preferably accompanied by fine spirits?


Let's start in Las Vegas, where I live. You may have seen our video recommending En Fuego Cigars & Lounge. Well-established with a loyal clientele, En Fuego is the former Don Yeyo Cigar Factory.


Proprietor Michael Abdoulah was naturally skeptical about e-cigars. Abdoulah knows tobacco cigars, loves cigars. But he definitely sees the electronic cigar as an add-on option in the cigar world. Here's a man whose business it is to know cigars and who loves to enjoy one with friends. When a tobacco cigar expert like that says e-cigars are okay in his lounge, that's huge.


If you're visiting here, stroll by the Casa Fuente at Caesars Palace. It has a different vibe – Old Havana meets American tourista. I prefer a whiskey with Cuvana e-cigars vs. the island-theme cocktails. And the dark wood and low-lights bar is more my comfort zone, but you can settle into a big wicker chair next to a potted palm. Watch the scene while you savor a Cuvana.


You'll hear other cigar aficianados mention certain cigar lounges as worthy entries on the world's best list. Many are known for their outstanding pairings of cigars and libations; others have an atmosphere that captures the camaraderie of smokers of cigars or vapers of e-cigars.


The well-known Cigar Factory in New Orleans makes the cut. In Baltimore, Maryland the Havana Club gets high marks for its cigar selection, classic leather sofas and salsa dancing.


The Cigar Bar at Tropicana Field, home of baseball's Tampa Bay Rays, is one of the last sports venues where you can watch the game and enjoy a vape.


What about electronic cigar vaporiums? That's another list, friends. If you have a favorite e-cigar bar, let us know. A great cigar lounge will always be in style.
