V Cut Cigar Lounge, Los Angeles, California

“Use a real lighter,” I say. He allows me to light what remains of his cigar and smiles, seemingly happy to be gently chided for his bad luck with fire on this day.

The other distinction is that V Cut has parking! This is particularly valuable on the nights that live jazz is featured in the lounge.

“We have live jazz about once a month, on Wednesdays,” Ahmadi explains. “We get a big crowd on those nights.”

If you live in L.A. or just happen to be visiting, you’ll experience some kind of bad traffic during some part of your day. Some of us have created a set of way-stations where we can stop and chill out until the traffic subsides. Sometimes it’s a bar or coffee joint. Now, though, I’ve got a series of cigar-friendly spots about five miles from one another that, if I need to take a break, welcome my visit.

And yes, they all have Wi-Fi.

I have frequented many a cigar lounge in my time, Smoke Zone in Valencia etc. When I moved to the LA I went in search of one comparable to it. One that offers great selection, friendly staff and a comfortable environment..Although not ready to completely divorce Smoke Zone, I have found a ready replacement in V Cut- great job guys
