Cigar Box opens second location
Just north of Bass Pro Shops, couples Russell and Kim Hurt, and Robert and Tami Foust have opened the second location of The Cigar Box, a cigar bar and retail store. The smoking bar is located at 409 W. Stone Wood Drive, in The Village at Stone Hill in Broken Arrow. The original, at the RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks, opened in September 2005.
"Many of our regular customers that frequent the Jenks location live in the south Tulsa area," said Russell Hurt said in an e-mail interview. "We wanted to offer the same concept to the east Tulsa community."
Hurt explained that a cigar bar is "a comfortable lounge in which people can relax and enjoy a fine cigar and drink of their choice with friends."
When a customer enters the facility, Hurt said, the visitor will find a friendly, fun and relaxing yet lively environment. Soft leather furniture, flat-screen satellite televisions and a full-service bar add more to the experience.
"We offer a full-service bar featuring single-malt scotches, wine, martinis and a wide variety of beer as well as soft drinks and Java Dave's coffee," Hurt said.
On the retail side, a large, walk-in humidor features premium cigars from around the world including Padron, Ashton, Macanudo, CAO, Don Pepin Garcia and Partagas.
"Most of our cigars are blended with tobaccos from around the world to achieve the desired balance and taste," Hurt said. The tobaccos primarily come from Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
"We also offer pipes, along with cigar and pipe accessories including humidors, cases, cutters, lighters and unique ashtrays," he said. "In addition, we feature a line of martini and wine glasses from Lolita.
Hurt said these tough economic times scream for a business like his to open.
" Everyone needs a release and some form of entertainment," Hurt said. "We have put together a concept that offers a unique escape and a selection of cigars and drinks to accommodate everyone's budget."
