Village Bourbon & Cigar was created by Anthony Alvarez, owner operator of The Vineyard Wine Market. Knowing the high niche demand, he focused on providing an unmatched experience in a comfortable, intimate space catering to cigar, whiskey, and cocktail enthusiasts. He then hired Jim Malliakis, the perfect fit with hospitality and industry experience, as manager.
What makes Village Bourbon & Cigar different? Jim shares, "It's simple: we are all about a personal experience. We get to know our guests. We are a traditional cigar lounge - not a rowdy bar or club with loud music and shots. We provide the opportunity to disconnect from the outside world, focus on the therapeutic cigar ritual of connecting with yourself. Time stops when you smoke a cigar. Cigar smokers are all about quiet time, making friends, and sharing stories. The cigar community has a special bond - I encourage you to join us for the experience."
Village Bourbon & Cigar was awarded Best Cigar Lounge in Atlanta and Best Cigar Lounge Manager by Atlanta Cigar Week. "This was an honor and proved what we are doing was recognized by the community. I'm proud of our accomplishments in just one year and thank our small staff, Kristina and Audrey, for believing in what we do and why we do it."
They offer an extensive selection of liquors beyond bourbon and whiskey, and the cocktail list includes something for everyone. They also offer wines from sister company Vineyard Wine Market, along with weekly specials, tasting events, and live music.
