Cigar Emporium is the first cigar shop that made me realize you don’t judge a book by it’s cover. When we approached their location at 3514 S. Shepherd Dr. Houston, Texas 77098, I thought the use of “Emporium” was overdoing it. It was a very small shop squeezed in between other shops in a strip mall.
When we walked in, the store is tiny, but they did a lot with the 1,000 sq ft they have. A front counter, display counters full of accessories, a walk-in humidor stuffed to the brink with a cigar lover’s dream selections, wall unit humidors filled with infused cigars so the scent is kept away from the regular tobacco, and a small smoking room in the back of the shop.
The two people running the store were very friendly and showed us something we have never seen before. A box of the Tatuaje Halloween cigar for 2011. Very exciting. This shop has the best selection of cigars and all are organized into a tiny space. The prices at this location are TERRIFIC! I found a Drew Estate Acid Kuba Kuba for $3.00 less than the other shops in the area. Yes, you read that right – $3.00 LESS.
This is definitely the shop to grab great premium cigars at fabulous prices. Check out their web site here.
