It started with a passion for cigars, plain & simple.
The saying “Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” haunted us through decades and through our careers. We loved our jobs, but the answer to the question “What would you do for a living if you could do anything?” was always “I’d open a cigar lounge”. No matter what we were doing, one of the best parts of the day was always that magical time when you sit down and relax with a quality cigar. And the magic of the cigar smoking experience wasn’t just about tobacco. It was about the friendships, the camaraderie, the social act of enjoying a good cigar together that made it our passion.
We come from diverse backgrounds: military, automotive, and oil & gas (Jaime) and medical equipment & services (Steve). Our cigar friends come from a variety of backgrounds as well. What brings us all together is the love of simply sitting around a fireplace in the winter or outside in the summer smoking cigars together, visiting, and solving the world’s problems.
Over the last ten years, our cigar nights increasingly featured conversations about how we’d structure the ideal place to smoke a cigar. It had to be as comfortable as any den or family room at a friend’s home. It had to warm and inviting. We wanted plenty of larger spaces for groups to congregate and smaller, more intimate spaces for quiet computer work or reading. There had to be a porch and outdoor space for pleasant summer evenings and brisk fall Saturday afternoons. The crowd needed to be a carefully curated group of friends brought together by passion for cigars.

SIGARO’s Hubbard location checked all the boxes! A downtown location close to everything. A neighborhood with convenient restaurants, coffee shops, and even a winery! A home away from home in a supportive community. An inviting, relaxing place to stop and have a cigar.
SIGARO is more than a cigar store. It features a retail setting with a beautiful, hand crafted walk-in humidor and pleasant seating areas for the casual or occasional customer to enjoy their cigar. Upstairs is a private, member’s only lounge with big screen TV’s, a theater room, a game room with a card table for dominoes, board games, or cards, and a kitchen for snacks and coffee. Sigaro is BYOB, but serves bottled water and premium coffee products. The building --built before World War 1-- is historic and the vintage architecture has been thoughtfully and carefully restored and renovated. We think the finished product is more home than business and we hope you will too!
