While enjoying a smoke outside of your home is becoming more of a task, I am happy to announce that Brooklyn has a place smokers finally can call home. Located in the heart of Williamsburg, Refugio Cigar House is my new favorite cigar lounge in Brooklyn. Upon your first visit, it will be yours too.
Refugio Cigar House is a very cozy spot that makes you feel like family as soon as you step in. The management is very friendly and engage all their customers like long time friends.
Decorated in an all camouflage green decor, Refugio is true to its’ refuge moniker. There for sale are some premium cigars from CAO, Romeo Y Julieta, Camacho, Montecristo, La Gloria Cubana and more. The true gems are their house blends.
I had the pleasure of trying three different Refugio house sticks and I was very impressed. Most importantly is their pricing, as prices start at $5.00 for their house blends. I would suggest their double wraps, Brazilians and mild coronas.
Once you pick out your cigar of choice expect to blend right in with the management and their regulars. Talking to the owner Mike Lopez was like to talking to one of my long time friends – a lot of Jokes, stories, sports trash talk and more.
I couldn’t have asked for more. Kudos to Refugio Cigar House for doing things right. I can’t wait to go back!
