About us

The seeds of Cheroot were planted twenty years ago when 2 brothers, Jimmie and Herbert began a cigar smoking club with three other members. They wanted to enjoy the experience of smoking fine cigars and drinking Cognac, Brandy, and fine Wine with other enthusiasts. Those seeds grew as did their passion for the hobby into the Cheroot Cigar Lounge and Social Club, a brick and mortar membership-based establishment for cigar lovers to meet, drink fine liquor, eat delicious food, listen to great Jazz music, and smoke cigars in a relaxing and upbeat environment.

What to know before choosing a cigar

Each cigar is different but there are a few key facts every cigar smoker should keep in mind when choosing one. First, learn about the blend of cigar to make sure it isn’t too strong or too mild. Keep in mind that price isn’t always an indicator of quality. Make sure your cigar has been properly aged. Make sure that your cigar is natural, made with tobacco, wrappers, binder, and filler. Nothing else. It is this natural flavor and color that contributes to a cigar’s inherent beauty
