The Hughmidor

At The Hughmidor, we believe in a cigar lounge that provides: a large variety of premium cigars, a relaxing environment that is welcome to our members, and a high degree of customer service.

This is the vision of store owner, Hugh Chisholm, and is what The Hughmidor strives to provide everyday. Hugh is a tobacco enthusiast with over 30 years in the industry.

The Hughmidor also has two retail associates on staff, Alan Green and Gary Pilittere, who have a collective 50+ years in the tobacco industry.

Whether a novice or expert, on a budget or after only the finest, stop on into The Hughmidor, where it is all about the experience!

“Eating and sleeping are the only activities that should be allowed to interrupt a man’s enjoyment of his cigar.”

- Mark Twain

The Lounge

The lounge is a place of refuge for the dedicated cigar smoker. A sanctuary for tobacco enthusiasts of all magnitudes, our lounge offers an area to unwind, socialize, and build camaraderie in a setting that is similar to an old school barbershop or country store.

The lounge features four reclining club chairs where you can socialize with other members or sit back and enjoy a game on the large screen TV. A card table in which the games are never ending and constantly looking for new participants. Lastly, you can sit at one of the three pub tables and read the paper or any magazines that the Hughmidor has on hand (new local paper daily), or use the free WIFI to get some work done in a relaxing setting.

The lounge offers 100 humidified lockers that are available to rent that can store the cigars of your choosing. Come enter the new world that is the cigar lounge and leave the distractions of the real world for a couple of hours.
