Toluca Lake’s Cigar Sanctuary Shop and Lounge is the premier destination for cigar lovers of all stripes. With one of the largest selections in California, Cigar Sanctuary offers high-end amenities and unbeatable prices. Cigar Sanctuary immerses its customers in a hospitable, relaxed environment where comfort and human connection rule. Although it’s a haven for the cigar aficionado, Cigar Sanctuary always has its door open for novice cigar enthusiasts looking to broaden their palette with a world-class selection.
Cigar Sanctuary houses an 800 square foot walk-in humidor, which means the entire product is humidified with a state-of-the-art ultra-sonic humidification system. This provides a certain quality and consistency virtually unmatched in Southern California, a one-of-a-kind experience in the Valley. Cigar Sanctuary also offers its patrons an enjoyable environment for socializing. The comfortable smoking lounge is perfect for a group of friends or coworkers to talk or watch the game on their large flat-screen television. Private humidified cigar lockers are also available to customers, the perfect place to store your goods.
Cigar Sanctuary’s vast stock of cigars is known for its immense quantity and high quality. The massive selection boasts over 1,000 different cigars, including several highly sought and hard-to-find brands. Among those are Opus X, Liga Privada, Padron, La Flor Dominicana, and Tatuaje. With so many choices, a novice cigar enthusiast may feel intimidated, but the staff gladly assists all patrons to find what is right for them, insuring the best possible experience. And it really is a “sanctuary” for cigar connoisseurs, as all of those rare brands are found in excess. Cigar Sanctuary ships in California, and will send any box of their premium cigars with no shipping cost.
The staff at Cigar Sanctuary makes it clear that an open-door policy is always in effect. The shop and lounge is dedicated to giving top notch service and selection to the community, taking care of walk-in customers with the same attention and standards as the regulars. The staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful with all questions and needs. Their main goal has been to create a sense of community, one that represents the Valley and Toluca Lake. A cigar tasting is held every couple of months, with complimentary food and drinks. It is this fellowship — along with the selection and atmosphere — that really makes Cigar Sanctuary the place to check out for anyone, from a cigar aficionado to a passerby. People love them on Yelp.
