Hey everyone, it’s Mario and Patty Medina! What started as a weekend hobby of smoking cigars with friends turned into a passion we dove into head first. We left the comfort of our established careers and traded in the keys to our beloved Corvettes for keys to the retail space many of you call home. When guests ask about how we started Cigar Life, we often make the joke, “well you’re standing in our old ’vettes.” We took a huge gamble on a passion and if given the opportunity, we would do it again and again.
Growing up in a Cuban family, cigars and our culture are very much simpatico. We’ve traveled the country visiting cigar shops and lounges along the way and used what we learned to create an unparalleled cigar experience. Our ultimate goal is to create an environment welcoming to cigar lovers as well as people new and perhaps curious about the cigar smoking culture. Whether you’ve been smoking cigars for years or you’re sharing your first cigar with us, we are honored to welcome you into our lounge. We hope you grow to love Cigar Life as much as we do - welcome to our family.
