We at FineTobaccoNYC are pleased to announce the first annual FineTobaccoNYC “Cigar Lounge of the Year Award,” based on a survey of cigar smokers in the New York City area (including Hoboken). With the upped levels of regulation in recent years, many a NY cigar smoker has noticed the rapid increase in cigarlounges in the city. I’m proud to say that our team has helped launch some of those lounges. But, taking into account the characteristics of a good smoking lounge, what are the best lounges in the city?
We have put together a short, three question survey to get a community response to this question. There are certain lounges missing (especially fromthe Bronx) so please feel free to use the “other” box if your favorite is not listed. We’ve also limited the options to exclude cigar bars like Merchants, Grand Havana Room, etc that serve liquor as liquor licenses are for all intents and purposes unobtainable to any new lounges.
The survey was sent first and foremost to our email subscribers, then announced via social media. If you are a NYC area cigar smoker, take the survey! Otherwise, await the announcement of the winner.
We’ll be announcing the winner and runners-up via our website at the end of the year (probably the 30th or 31st) – so stay tuned! VOTING ENDS DEC. 30th.
