Finding a good cigar lounge near you can be tough, especially if you’re traveling and not familiar with the area. I often face this issue myself. The perfect solution to finding a great place to smoke is nearly finished. Until then we’re left with scouring online resources and sifting through social media for recommendations.
But that takes time, and time is valuable. More time reading online reviews means less time to enjoy your cigar.
I’ve got great news if you’re looking for a great place to enjoy a stick in Houston because I’ve done all the research for you.
This list is a compilation of data from every source imaginable – Twitter sentiment, Facebook posts and reviews, Instagram feedback, Pinterest shares, Google reviews, Yelp, Foursquare, cigar forums, and personal recommendations.
All of these cigar lounges are outstanding so it was impossible to rank one over the other. If you are looking for something specific, be sure to check out the best feature at the end of each review.
