One literally takes a step back in time when entering Cigar Factory New Orleans. Its pulsating Latin sounds and aromatic scents beckon passers by to indulge in the rich history of the city and the tradition of fine cigar smoking.
Cigar Factory currently operates two locations in the French Quarter and produces 50,000 cigars per month between their sites. The main factory’s cigar museum houses the only known relics left from a bygone era of manufacturing, a nod to the late 1800′s when this city’s port received tobacco from Cuba and other Caribbean countries, producing such famous brands as “El Trelles”, “Jose Vega”, and “La Belle Creole”.
New Orleans is one of the last city’s where you can still enjoy your favorite cocktail and a hand-rolled cigar as you stroll down “The Big Easy”.
