As lockdowns end in certain states and vaccines become more widely available, more businesses across the U.S. are re-opening. For cigar lovers in Atlanta, Georgia, it means the arrival of Studio Cigar Lounge, an expansive new smoking establishment that had its grand opening in January.
Custom-built from the ground up, the large, 9,400 square-foot complex is a bi-level smoking emporium looking to attract the cigar fans of Atlanta with amenities that include a large walk-in humidor; two covered patios (at 1,000 square feet each); two full bars and a commercial kitchen staffed with two executive chefs.
From the kitchen, you can choose between anything from chicken wings and lamb chops to omelets and pancakes (what Studio calls “modern takes on Southern classics”). The fully-stocked bars offer high-end Bourbons, whiskeys, Scotches, wines and beer, as well as signature cocktails like the Cigarita or Studio Old Fashioned.
For those who appreciate exclusivity, Studio Cigar Lounge offers a member locker program for corporate and individual members with a total of 120 lockers available. The membership grants access to the VIP second floor appointed with its own bar, private meeting room and lounges along with an outdoor deck. However, members and non-members alike can reserve the space for private events.
The lounge is located in the southern crescent of metro Atlanta. Founder and CEO Brian Boulware, a former law enforcement officer, created the establishment as a place to smoke with friends, family and visitors alike. It’s owned by the S & B Group and is a ClubCorp USA Affiliate Member. Those who become members of the lounge receive privileges at ClubCorp Associate facilities through the U.S. which includes 400 private clubs.
While Studio can accommodate 355 patrons at maximum capacity, the large square footage and open floor plan allows for adequate social distancing.
