Houston is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the US, so it should come as no surprise that we have some of the best and most unique cigar bars in the country. Both men and women in the Bayou City have made a favorite pastime of hanging and taking in a good stogie. We took a look at some of the top Black-owned cigar bars in the area (and this one was a hard one because there are so many to choose from). Head over to our social media page and let us know your favorite place.

International House of Stogies Facebook

Cleopatra’s Cigar and Cognac Lounge

1833 Richmond Pkwy, Richmond, TX 77469
(281) 762 – 7459

This richly decorated and spacious lounge in Richmond allows you to enjoy a cigar, a cognac or a cocktail. I’m not a cigar smoker and this is one of my favorite places because it’s a whole vibe. You can relax on one of their leather couches while the staff cuts and lights your cigar. Or you can reserve a table and enjoy the full experience with friends. They have an agreement with the delicious New Orleans restaurant next door so you can order food (the oysters are everything), take in good music and just vibe all the way out.

International House of Stogies

7425 Highway 6, ste 200, Missouri City, TX 77459

This boutique cigar lounge carries premium cigars produced in small batches, as well as popular brands in limited quantities. This is one of my husband’s favorite spots to chill out, watch the game, or just enjoy a good cigar. They have a membership program that allows you to come anytime, day or night. Members enjoy a locker to store their cigars and liquor. I especially like the outdoor patio seating.

Sweet Lips Cigars Lounge

If relaxed, chill, and anything but pretentious is what you’re looking for, look no further than this cigar lounge near Third Ward. Inside, you’ll find two main cigar rooms and a large humidor. The first room has numerous seating options as well as TVs and a full bar ready to serve any beverage to pair with your chosen cigar. The second room is a little smaller and more intimate, sporting less seating and TVs, and is perfect for a quieter smoking session. Apart from the amazing selection of cigars and the neighborhood vibe, the wall of amazing cigar photography is sure to get you an Instagram worthy moment while at Sweet Lips. There’s a reason this place is named sweet lips. They have quality flavored cigars with exotic flavors for women/men that are heavily flavored and sugar tipped for the ultimate taste and sweetness.
