Thinking About Opening a Cigar Martini Bar

If you are thinking of opening a Cigar Martini Bar, here are a few ideas to get you started. The idea of opening this type of bar creates a feeling of grandeur. When I opened my first cigar martini bar this was the theme. We filled all the rooms with posh seats and couches, and every room had a different décor. The walls were dark mahogany, with tray ceiling to give these rooms an elegant gentleman’s club. The idea gives me warm feelings just thinking about the Club. I included a few ideas that helped me get started on how the Club worked and flowed. I hope you let your creative juices flow, and create an idea that will be profitable and pleasurable at the same time.
