This shop is located in a strip mall (Broedell Plaza) on a main highway with easy access. It is located in the one of the fastest growing areas in Western Florida called Trinity. It is easily seen from the road and has plenty of parking.
There is always someone there that is an expert in recommending a cigar to any level of experience.
This shop has “cabinet” type humidors occupying the entire length of the wall with individual humidifiers that are meticulously maintained. The cigar selection is the largest in Pasco County representing most major vendors. After going there for a year, I’ve never seen any beetles or mold. The air filters are state of the art and keep the air pure even during Sunday football when the bar is full of customers.
There is a large bar with plenty of stools so one can enjoy their beer, wine or free coffee, while they converse with their bartender. There is also 3 suites of comfortable leather couches and chairs with a cocktail table in each suite. Every person in the “suite” or at the bar can see one of 3 large HD LCD TV’s . The color theme of the “lounge” is dark wood and dark leather with tastefully neutral painted walls and floor. The restrooms are beautifully tiled in subtle earth tones. There is a place to play chess and there is a “Golf” arcade game along with electronic “Darts”. There is also an electronic “Trivia” game on the bar. The lounge also offers free wi-fi with plenty of outlets throughout.
Overall Opinion: Exceptional
This establishment will definitely see me there and often. Indeed, over the last year, it is my “go to” place to relax, enjoy a smoke, a libation, but most of all, good conversation with good friends. Many of us refer to Cigars and Pars as our “sanctuary”.
