Smokey Lounges
I've been to a handful of cigar lounges over the last few months and I've noticed that they were smokey. I was expecting that they would not be because of they had ventilation system.

Is this the norm? What's been your experience?

Some lounges have really good ventilation systems, most don't. Sad, but true.

I’ve also noticed a similar situation. More often then not I find lounges to be rather Smokey. Can’t decide if I find it welcoming or overwhelming at times.

Out of the five I frequent 2 have decent ventilation.

A lot of lounges mainly use an exhaust system. Which along with sucking out smoke, it also sucks out cooling/heating. So during the summer/winter its a balance between store temp vs air quality. If its super smokey, the ventilation just sucks or theres not enough air circulation for air cleaners to work at its desired performance.

In a large lounge itís $250,000 to $500,000 investment, the two I find myself in are those types. They also have near perfect Humidors if there is such a thing for walk-ins. The majority are not that. I donít care for smoke filled Lounges so I drive 25 miles to avoid them.

There is no where to smoke inside near me so id love any lounge to get and a decent store and not my corner cigarette and beer shop with a small walk in humidor.

The indoor my local group meets at has a small exhaust fan and two Smokeeters. Twelve of us completely overwhelm the system. I go home feeling like I smoked 50 cigars instead of 4.

A customer of mine wants to put a raised floor poker room in at his shop, we want to do a laminar flow from the floor up and out of the ceiling, using an energy recovery unit. It's a pipe dream at the moment, but I'm excited to see if we can get it running well.

My wife and I were in Manhattan today for a cake delivery (that's her side business). I suggested we should check out a decent cigar lounge. We ended up at Davidoff on 56th. I was more excited about seeing if the lounge was smokey than anything else, so I honestly didn't look around too much.

I've been wanting to try a Padron 5000 Maduro so I headed into the humidor. I settled for a 3000 maduro as they were out of the 5000. I also got an AVO something, yes I know I should have paid more attention, for my wife. Keep in mind cigars are not her thing and that was validated today lol.

The lounge was great! Not smokey, great ventilation! I guess it's to be expected considering it's a Davidoff location. I may have been spoiled for life...

There are a couple of local casinos I go to and they have great exhaust systems and to me don't smell smoky, I guess it boils down to how much you want to spend on an air exchange system.
