Born in 2012, The Village Cigar Co.& Barbershop opened in the heart of Burlington Ontario and since then continues to thrive with its offerings of a large line of cigars, pipe tobacco and smoking accessories. Village Cigars hit the sparse Canadian tobacco market with a unique flair reminiscent of the early 19th century. Sporting their stylish beards and gentlemanly attire, the four young founders, Jerry, Jordan, Kris, and Ryan have really created a thriving community where both the novice and aficionado can congregate in their common passion of smoking.
The moment you walk in you are treated like royalty, they serve you on hands and feet and they truly appreciate your patronage, not as a customer, but as a friend. The environment that they create synthesizes an atmosphere of calm and serenity. It really is a place that you want to drop by and relax at.
The shop is accented by antiques which suites the motif well. The walk in humidor is stocked with the finest premium cigars on the market and it is guaranteed to have anything that your heart desires. Village Cigars also offers an exclusive house brand called Pueblo, which is hefty stick that is marvellously constructed and produces a heavenly aroma.
Should you decide to purchase a stick and want to sit back and relax, this place is just for you. The shop has two patios, one at the front, overlooking beautiful Burlington Market, and the rear seating which is indicative of an old English cobblestone
alley. If you decide that today is not a day for a cigar, Village Cigar’s also hosts an in-store barbershop where master barbers can treat you to a hot towel shave.
Whether you looking for a delicious stogie, a close shave or a chat with some great gentlemen, Village Cigar Co. is the place for you to visit.
