La Faraona Cigars Ybor City FL

Cigar 64 had the pleasure of visiting La Faraona Cigars in Ybor City Florida.  La Faraona Cigars has two locations, the original factory where they hand roll all the cigars from selected Cuban seed tobacco and the cigar lounge, located two blocks down the street from the factory at 1315 E 7th Ave.  We didn’t stop at The Factory this trip because we had visited some years prior but had never been to The Lounge so that’s where we headed. When you walk into the La Faraona Cigar Lounge, the vibe feels really relaxing and comfortable.  There are big comfortable arm chairs and sofas for you to sit and talk, listen to great music or watch one of their huge screen TV’s.  Or if you prefer, you could sit outside to enjoy your favorite stogie.  We were visiting during the middle of the week so it was really very quiet with only a couple regulars in the house. We opted to sit outside to do a little people watching and enjoy the activities of 7th Avenue. Rene Guerrero, the owner of the lounge was so gracious and inviting and made us feel right at home.  We also had the opportunity to try some of the house cappuccino which was very delicious and paired well with our stogies. We stayed for a couple hours before finally heading back to our hotel room.   La Faraona Cigars has been added to our list of favorite cigar lounges and we will definitely be coming back to visit next time we’re in Florida.  If you’re ever in the area, go check them out.
