During the mid-1990s, cigar club started to gain popularity since many businesses put a ban on smoking in their organizations. Because of that, smokers had no choice but to look for somewhere else to smoke in public. In the end, they went for cigar clubs.
Cigar clubs are of different kinds, some allowing only the smoking of cigars, while others allow the smoking of both cigars and cigarettes. Most of the cigar clubs that we will see and talk about on this list are cigars only, because they are higher-end and very costly to get into.
