Cigars may be an acquired taste, but those who love them also love a place to enjoy them. Although cigarettes (and sometimes e-cigs) are banned within bars and restaurants, there are a few spots around Dallas-Fort Worth where you can peruse the humidor, select a cigar, and light it up.
If you want to add a glass of whiskey or wine to that ritual, you can certainly do that at one of these top six, presented in alphabetical order:
Addison Cigar & Tobacco Club
This cigar shop sits right on the edge of Addison Airport, overlooking the runway. If that doesn't sound at all like a place you want to hang out, consider this: It has a large humidor and plush chairs, and if you're a member, you get to spend time in the bigger, more opulent members' lounge.
Found in the pedestrian-friendly Bishop Arts District in Dallas, this BYOB cigar bar is just made for relaxing. Grab a growler of cider — Bishop Cider Company is conveniently located across the street — and sit back and relax in the manly, yet not unwelcoming, small bar.
Cigar Lounge at Chamberlain’s
Chamberlain's in Addison is known mainly as a high-end steak and seafood restaurant, but its cigar lounge is a destination unto itself, with a sophisticated yet relaxed vibe. Reservations are recommended for this location, but the live music and customized service make it well worth it.
Relaxed, friendly staff is exactly what you find at this cigar shop on Greenville Avenue in Dallas. This BYOB joint carries a large selection of cigars, pipes, tobacco, humidors, and all the help you need to get going to enjoy a relaxing time with friends.
Silver Leaf Cigar Lounge
A destination within Fort Worth's Sundance Square, Silver Leaf features a sleek bar with an extensive list of whiskey to go along with your cigar, which you can select in the large, walk-in humidor.
Taboo Cigar Bar & Lounge
Two lounges — one public, one private — are what make this cigar bar in North Richland Hills worth a stop. The yearly membership to the VIP lounge nets you some pretty sweet discounts, but even if you opt to just swing by the public area, you won't be disappointed by the cocktails or the humidor.
