If you visit the absolutely beautiful downtown area of Naples, Florida, do yourself a favor and go two blocks off the main street to Eighth Street South and that is where you will find Marcus Daniel Tobacconist.  This pristine cigar lounge looks like no other.  Outside of the store there are many comfortable sofas and chairs where one can sit and enjoy the serine street life of Naples.  Inside, the client enters a different world where all of the senses are made to believe that you have teleported to a cigar shop in Havana.  The décor, furniture, music and aromas of the cigars are all within the theme and are all on point.

Fat Ash Cigar Lounge

Fat Ash Cigar Lounge in Ashland | CIGARFRIENDLY: Kentucky, USA

Blessed be this wonderful lounge in the bosom of America’s heartland, Ashland, Kentucky. If you need a smoky treat while driving down Interstate 64 at the junction of West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, I have just the place! Beautiful souls and owners, Dwight and Shannon Adkins caught up with me and we discussed the incredibly unique establishment that is Fat Ash as well as the jewel that is Boyd County, Kentucky and all it has to offer.

Vicente of London Premier Cigar Lounge & Shop| Cigar Friendly: Naples, FL

If you’re driving down to Naples from the North, take exit 111 which is Immokalee Road and head West until you see the Shoppes of Galeria. In this pristine shopping center, go to the Western most part and you will see Vicente of London. The self-proclaimed “Hidden Gem” by one of the owners, Phillip Beshara, is an absolute treat for the cigar lover. After having a beer and a cigar with Phillip, I would agree with calling the place a jewel indeed.
