Dilworth Neighborhood Welcomes Upscale Whiskey And Cigar Bar
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Vintage Whiskey and Cigar Bar will be opening its doors on Friday in Charlotte as South End’s first upscale cigar lounge with over 1,000 varieties of cigars and hand-picked whiskey to enjoy.
Bar officials describe “The Vintage Experience” offered at the lounge as exceptional hand-rolled cigars, crafted cocktails, local beers, boutique curated wines, and an espresso bar in a comfortable and relaxed environment.
Access to the lounge requires customers to purchase a membership, and starting February 19th, passports for General Memberships are on sale at The Vintage for $20 a year to access the public lounge and patio, officials say.
Officials with The Vintage say a custom, builtin humidor and an HVAC air-purification system have been installed.
The Vintage will also be offering The Ambassador Membership and The Consulate Membership sometime in the future with added benefits including access to private lounges and patios, a cigar locker, discounts, and more.
Local tech entrepreneur Dan Weiss, with The Menagerie Hospitality Group, is behind the creation of the upscale lounge located at 215 East Worthington Avenue, formerly an Iron Tribe fitness center.
Officials say The Menagerie Hospitality Group and Weiss are also behind the creation of the Wine Loft located in South End.
