The sophisticated showroom at Stogies World Class Cigars hosts distinctive cigars, humidors, lighters, cases, and cigar-care products for aromatic indulgence and elegant gift giving. Cigars ($2–$65) redolent with spice, cedar, and cocoa line the walls of the newly expanded walk-in humidor, where long leaves from makers such as Montecristo, Oliva, Perdomo, Padron, and Kristoff win over noses with their rich bouquet and dead-on caterpillar impersonations. An official Rocky Patel lounge, the shop offers a sumptuous setting in which to enjoy the company of fellow smokers or relax during on-site laser engraving ($10+) of nearly any material. Always on hand to guide the stogie-shy, the store's knowledgeable staff members all boast educated palates and brief careers as TV weathermen, enabling them to differentiate the microclimates of humidors ($24–$600) and command the lightning within high-quality lighters such as the Alec Bradley Table-Top Torch ($49.95).
Black leather couches anchor the wood-paneled lounge, where aficionados hobnob after dining at the Palm next door, browse the Net via complimentary wireless Internet, and gather to watch games on three plasma televisions. Representatives dispense wisdom about replacing a signature chewing stick with one of their company's finest Havanas at the lounge once a month, topping off a calendar of cigar parties and other tobacco-themed events.
