J.C. Newman Opens a New Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge

J.C. Newman Cigar Co. and Corona Cigar Co. opened a new Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge at Corona’s Tampa cigar store at a grand opening celebration attended by 250 people, including local politicians and local celebrities. This is the 36th Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge currently open in the United States. This new Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge is also the second one at a Corona store; the Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge at Corona’s downtown Orlando store opened in 2008.

“We are so proud to have a Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge in our hometown,” said Eric Newman. “Because Tampa is ‘Cigar City,’ it is important to us that cigar enthusiasts have a first-class location to enjoy luxury cigars like Diamond Crown.”

J.C. Newman opened the first Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge in 2007 as a response to the proliferation of smoking bans across the United States. During the past 17 years, three dozen Diamond Crown Cigar Lounges, from New York to Washington state, have become havens for cigar passionados to light up fine cigars. 

“My family and I have been friends with the Newmans for more than 20 years,” said Jeff Borysiewicz. “I fondly remember when Stanford Newman gave me my first Diamond Crown cigar. It was an outstanding luxury cigar then, and it remains an outstanding luxury cigar today.”

The Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge at Corona Cigar Co. Tampa store features a private room that overlooks the retail store. Inside are rare selections of Diamond Crown Classic, Diamond Crown MAXIMUS, Diamond Crown Julius Caeser, and Diamond Crown Black Diamond cigars along with The American, Angel Cuesta, and LeRoy Neiman Collectors Edition.  Later this year, J.C. Newman and Corona will unveil Diamond Crown Tampa, a new cigar rolled with Borysiewicz’s Florida Sun Grown tobaccos.
