Club Macanudo will host a grand opening event tomorrow, February 17, 2024 to celebrate the official launch of its second US location. Called Club Macanudo Bossier City, the luxury cigar lounge marks the first resort to host the Club Macanudo brand and follows the February 2022 premier of Club Macanudo Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Developed in partnership with Margaritaville Resort Casino and Southern Smoke Cigar Company, Club Macanudo Bossier City is a meticulously-appointed sanctuary that infuses elements of a sophisticated cigar lounge with coastal allure, evoking earth tones and a spa palate to create a haven of indulgence and leisure. Buttery-soft leather seating, burlwood tables and plush club chairs create intimate nooks for conversation while an al fresco lounge offers panoramic views of the resort. At the heart of the lounge is a glass-enclosed humidor and a peninsula-shaped bar stocked with an array of wine and specialty spirits to satisfy an aficionado’s palate.

Club Macanudo Bossier City offers a curated selection of the most sought-after handcrafted cigars. A full collection of Macanudo cigars, including classics, limited editions and global best-sellers such as Café and Inspirado are available for purchase, alongside a selection of Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s best-selling brands such as Cohiba, Punch, CAO, La Gloria Cubana, Partagas and Alec Bradley.

Chris Tarr, vice president of marketing for Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG) which owns Club Macanudo and the Macanudo brand said, “The opening of Club Macanudo Bossier City marks a significant step in the expansion of our premium cigar lounge platform. With this strategic addition to the growing Club Macanudo collection, we have aligned our brand with the resort-casino occasion, delivering a new touchpoint for cigar smokers to indulge in their passion for handmade cigars. We will continue to explore opportunities to develop additional lounges that align with brands across our entire portfolio.”

Daniel Ihm, senior vice president and general manager of Margaritaville Resort Casino said, “We are excited to partner with Southern Smoke Cigar Company, a locally owned and operated business, and Scandinavian Tobacco Group, a global leader in the premium cigar space. This partnership and opening of the Club Macanudo cigar lounge enhances our best-in-class casino resort and provides another dimension of in-property relaxation for Margaritaville Resort Casino guests and adult consumers in the Shreveport/Bossier City market to enjoy.”
