The region known as Northwest Arkansas is truly one of the hidden gems of The United States of America! Bentonville is the hub of this area and may be known by some as the birthplace of a store we all know and love, Walmart. The very first Walmart was built in Bentonville and now the city is the headquarters of the aforementioned Walmart as well as its sister company, Sam’s Club. As well as having many executives of the brand that live here, many of the companies that sell to Walmart also have at least a satellite office of their firm in the area. All this being said, the region is of great affluence, and the visitors of this area are treated to world-class accommodations and service as they enjoy what this region has to offer. Two stellar cigar lounges are there as well for all the lovers of the leaf.
One Eye Jack’s
Located just off of Interstate 49 is One Eye Jack’s. A wonderful, spacious cigar lounge with a vast, extensive humidor. Joe and Joyce Mogdelin are the architects of this palace of spirits and tobacco. Plenty of comfortable leather sofas and chairs are available for the patrons who wish to light up and let their worries subside.
With an array of more than 230 brands of scotches and whiskeys, the perfect pairing for your cigar of choice is present and accounted for. Beer, wines and ports are available for consumption as well. Award-winning mixologist, Danielle Biondo is behind the bar making the classics as well as her signature craft cocktails for which she won The People’s choice award for best bartender in 2017! Jim is also available, with his extensive knowledge of whiskeys to pair you up right.

The Cigar District
Downtown Bentonville, Arkansas is where you will find The Cigar District. The Cigar District is the Davidoff White Label Lounge for Northwest Arkansas with a bountiful humidor and great sitting areas both outside and inside on the ground floor. Bobby and Johnna Duncan are the dynamic duo who put this great facility together. Plenty of cigar-related accessories and other men’s gifts are available for purchase in the retail area.
Located on the second floor is The Refuge, which is the members-only portion of the lounge. The Refuge features an upscale lounge, meeting room and rooftop patio. The rooftop lounge is a pristine setting with firepits and fans to regulate the somewhat unpredictable Arkansas weather. The overall concept of The Refuge is to allow its members to let their hair down and find some peace of mind after what could be a rather stressful day in a town where important business occurs on a daily basis. You would be hard-pressed to find a more zen location in which to enjoy your cigar.
