In an effort to revolutionize the traditional world of the tobacco industry, BAT UK limited, is doing what any good business would.  They took over the Cocoa Tree Gentleman’s club on 1A James St, and turning it into a gentleman’s tobacco lounge with expert tobacconist, Robert Emery, the company guarantees guests an exciting and refreshing new experience.


Like many tobacco lounges, there are private humidors that can be purchased, a wide range of world class products, and a team of experts that will assist in the education of mixology and the vast products available.  Where the Dunhill Cigar store at 1A is different, however, is in the youthful atmosphere of the location’s interior design, the cigar lounge where a client can spend the day attending to business matters with a cup of coffee—if he so chooses, and exclusive adult catered events.  These events often include cocktail hours where drinks are personalized by a mixologist and even paired with one’s tobacco of choice.
