There’s a new place to unwind after golf or drinks at the wine bar in northeast Mesa.
Fox Cigars opened in June at The Village at Las Sendas shopping center. It’s from the same owners as Fox Cigar Bar, a Gilbert destination with 90 boutique bourbons, whiskeys and cognacs, 14 rotating craft beer taps, and plenty of other liquors.
The Mesa shop does not serve alcohol, says Robert Villalobos, who mans the shop, but there is a humidor packed full of limited production cigars.
“We specialize in a lot of first releases and cigars only available at family auctions,” says Villalobos, who names Fuente Fuente Opus X, Drew Estate and Tatuaje among the brands Fox carries.
Black leather club chairs and flat-screen TVs encourage patrons to stay and smoke a while. And the staff, says Villalobos, is knowledgeable about and experienced with the inventory. He ran a Miami cigar factory, where tobacco was bought, sorted and rolled.
“We’re not guessing. When you come in wanting something specific, we’ll be able to point you right to it,” he says.
Fox Cigars is open daily at 2837 N. Power Road, Suite 113. For information, call (480) 396-1750.
