Cigar Shop Review – The Cigar Shop, Biloxi, MS

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the Mississippi Gulf Coast and wiped out our cigar shops. Two of them, the main two shops, never reopened like many businesses in our area. Most business were scared to risk a venture on the Gulf Coast after such a devastating hit. Every since that horrible day, the Mississippi Gulf Coast especially had a huge void for a cigar shop with a lounge. Enter The Cigar Shop.

Not the most creative name, LOL, but, boy, did this shop ever come at the right time. The Cigar Shop finally give Mississippians and visitors a place to actually buy a cigar AND smoke it! Some people might be surprised by this, but its the only shop with a lounge from New Orleans, LA to Mobile, AL. They have two large humidors with a great selection including brands like Oliva, Tatuaje, Illusione, Ashton, Davidoff, Zino, Avo, La Flor Dominicana, Viaje, Rocky Patel, Winston Churchill, Griffin, Alec Bradley, Montecristo, La Gloria Cubana, Perdomo and many others. They are even getting new stuff in every week and the prices are quite reasonable. There are three main seating locations. One, in the main shop area, two, a TV room, and, three, a small seating area near the large humidor. They also have a private cigar lounge that is really QUITE nice. It has wall to wall beautiful leather couches and chairs along with 3 massive TVs, one of which is a HUGE HD projection unit. Operations Manager, Craig Carpenter and Sales Manager, Billy Brantley, have really made the store very enjoyable with a friendly atmosphere. Every Friday they have Customer Appreciation Day, where they cater food, have free drinks including beer and have raffles for prizes. You will be seeing some of my reviews being based out of the shop over the next several months. If you are ever on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, check out The Cigar Shop. You won’t be disappointed.

Ben, this looks good, I wish that some day, I will be in Biloxi,I will be going to the Cigar Shop.

Ben, A very nice B&M cigar. The humidor is huge compared to my local B&M cigars. If I’m ever in the Biloxi, Missippi that I will dropped in for a visit.

Oh man. This place looks top-notch. Unfortunately, I’m in Seattle! Someday if I’m in the area though… I really wish we had something like this up here in WA.

I live in Gulfport and go to this shop all of the time; I can’t say enough about it. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable while the store has a great selection of cigars. It is definitely worth the trip.

Very nice , job well done elegant , impressive, and looks inciting and comfortable . Hats if to you all

A fantastic shop!

The managers and owner (above) are great people.

Very nice shop with a nice selection and helpful staff. I’ve been working in the Gulfport/Biloxi area for several months and finally found a cigar shop, what a shop! I live in the Seattle area and your shop is much nicer than anything I’ve seen locally where I live. Looking forward to more visits.I’ll be back.

This sounds great! I may be in the area for business in a few weeks and will definitely stop by if I can.
