Casa de Montecristo is moving its Washington DC store to a new two-story location. Unfortunately, patrons smoking at the location will be limited to an outdoor patio. The new lounge is located two blocks away from the current site on 19th Street NW between L and M streets.
According to Casa de Montecristo, city restrictions prevented an indoor smoking lounge from being operated. However, the brand is confident there will still be plenty to offer at the new facility.
“What adult cigar smokers will find at our new store,” says Luis Miguel Torres, CEO & Head of Casa de Montecristo in a press release, “is a great selection of the finest cigars available in the United States, and great accommodations for adult cigar lovers to relax and enjoy premium hand-made cigars with friends and like-minded adult consumers.”
Casa de Montecristo is occupying the entire two-story building. The facility will feature two bars with eight HD-TVs on both levels. The ground floor contains sixteen custom-made wall units on the ground floor from Spanish Cedar and can display 320 linear feet of cigars. The second floor features 60 similarly made private humidor lockets for customers
“Building this new premium cigar facility has been a great experience for us,” Torres says. “We look forward to bringing the cigar-life experience to new heights in Washington.”
The new lounge officially opens on February 12, 2019. The Washington DC store is one of 28 premium cigar stores and lounges either owned or licensed by Casa de Montecristo, a division of Tabacalera USA.
