When you walk into our humidor, you’ll immediately notice our custom built Davidoff cabinet. We’re proud to be one of about 250 appointed merchants in the country – notably because Davidoff’s quality standards continue through every step of crafting their incredible premium cigars. From tobacco seed to our humidor, you’ll notice the Davidoff difference.
Proper temperature and humidification are essential to age and store quality cigars and tobacco. Our twin computer-controlled systems, Nortec and Leibert, are able to control the humidor temperature as well as maintain a humidity of 68-70 percent, just like the natural weather the South American tobacco is grown in.
Crowned Heads, based right here in Nashville, believes in continuous improvement and in a marriage of tradition with innovation. They carve their own path in the industry with brands like Four Kicks, Headley Grange, Jericho Hill, Tennessee Waltz, and our very own exclusive, the Arrington Double-W. This is a joint partnership between Arrington Vineyards, Crowned Heads and Franklin Cigar.
Davidoff treats every single tobacco leaf with excellence; this care and protection is carried throughout each of their brands. Along with the world-famous White Label, Davidoff is the parent company to several other brands such as Zino Platinum, Avo, Camacho, and Room 101.
Drew Estate was created because Jonathan Drew was looking for a rebirth of cigars. He demanded more out of the tobacco he could find and believed in pushing the industry to places no one else has gone. He has successfully done that time and time again. His diverse portfolio contains everything from ACID to Liga Privada.
Perdomo, a small family-owned cigar brand, controls every step of the process. With roots deep in cigar making and growing tobacco, they’re a vertical company – meaning every part of the cigar making process is done and created by the people at Perdomo.
A fine cigar deserves the finest of craft beers. We’re located near some of the best craft breweries on the market. We support local because we drink local – you don’t have to go far to find quality brews. But, when something farther away impresses us enough, you’ll see it on one of our eight rotating taps too.

You can drink your favorite brew and smoke your favorite cigar but if the flavor profiles are fighting each other, you will not enjoy your experience. Understanding how to pair a cigar with your beer, wine, liquor or even food is important to maximize the level of enjoyment.
