I will be a regular customer there. I do not know of a nicer place to have a cigar and a drink in Atlanta. The staff and the other customers were very nice. I tried a scotch I had never tried before because they had so many. I think this is a great place.

Ok Here's the real deal.

We all know that every cigar shop in the city charges way too much for their sticks; Highland is no different.
However, because of the atmosphere and full menu of the best single malt scotch's available, I can't rave enough about this place.
See the key is to get your stogies online at a severe discount (they dont mind you bringing your own) and come in and enjoy the great conversation and other amenities they have.
I rate this gem 98 out 100.

If you like cigars, you will like this place. It's as simple as that. If you like a good scotch, you will LOVE this place! If you like both then you have found your new favorite place to hangout. Highly recommended.

I went here with friends and was worried because I don't smoke. I actually had fun. I bet if I smoked cigars, this would be the coolest place ever!!

I like the place a lot BUT if there is ANY type of event going on; you can forget good customer service, in fact I have come in the door, went up to the bar and have waited for at least 10 minutes before getting an order of any kind placed. And don't even think you will get a greeting what so ever if an event is going on, because they are milking the capricious customers at that moment; that they feel will tip them well, instead of their regulars!

Pros: good selection of cigars

Cons: customer service during an event

.

I love a good cigar every once in a while and from now on this is my place for relaxing and having my smoke. The cigar selection is far better than any other place with a bar, and the bar selection is incredible. What more could I want? Oh yes, a plush sofa on which to relax - that was there too. I am now spoiled.

Pros: Nice cigar selection, huge bar

I walked in to pick up a stogie and ended up spending my entire afternoon there! Why don't all cigar shops have bars inside? I sank into a sofa and felt like king of the world. Lauren and Claudia took great care of me! Thanks ladies. Keep up the great work!

We stumbled on this place not really knowing what to expect and found it to be a great bar with a nice cigar selection. We had no idea it was a full bar so we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very helpful and treated us like kings! This will be one of our favorite hangouts for sure.

My experiences at Highland Cigar were not so great as everyone is saying. Since my regular cigar store closed last year, I have sort of been homeless and been trying to find a new cigar store to hang out at. I found their cigar selection to be pretty awful, slightly expensive too. I am not much of a drinker so I cant say much there. I really didn't feel the "cozy and great" atmosphere and no one claiming to be the owner rushed out to greet me. I sort of got the feeling that the waitress was trying to usher us out. There is no way so many people are giving them 5 stars. I really have to believe they are having their employees or insiders write themselves reviews. How come every good review talks about the owner by name and says how great he is? Something is up there. There is nothing really spectacular about this place. If you really want to go to a cigar store, go to Cigar World (the old Georgia Cigar) in Buckhead or Tobacco World in Marietta where they actually have a huge selection of cigars.

I was in town on business and found out about Highland Cigar online. It looked like a great place to relax and smoke, with great reviews as well. I had emailed Brian (the owner) about the bar and when I came into the Highland Cigar, I was immediately greeted by him. I knew I was in for a nice time. Brian introduced me to some of the regulars as well as the manager, who was a knockout! I was able to bring my own cigar from the outside, though they had a small, but very nice selection (no sissy cigars) in the walk-in humidor.

I don't think you negative reviewers gave Highland Cigar a fair shot. I can't wait to visit Atlanta again.

Where do I start? For a women who has been brought up on fine scotch, and finer cigars Highland has brought back so many wonderful memories. But beyond that, for a woman who loves cigars, and scotch Highland is a great environment. Very courteous gentlemen and ladies, attentive staff, and comfy furniture just to name a few.. I enjoy it there so much! I call Highland my personal escape.... It?s just to bad that you cant please everyone.. But Guys.. you are pleasing the right people.. and that?s what makes Highland Cigar Bar the best.. You have the best of Atlanta going there! Good Job!

Pros: Good cigars, great scotch, men watching sports, men smoking cigars...men!

Cons: to busy watching men

This is the only true" Cigar Bar" in Atlanta;which is kind of amazing considering the size of this city. Great atmosphere for meeting new people,having a drink,watching the game or smoking a stogie. Great place to bring your laptop and get some work done with their free WiFi also.

Your rein this past year is flawless...
Your industry and private affairs are wonderful to attend.
I compare Highland to Stogies in Montreal and Merchants in NY(Highland is much better)
Great cigars and the bar and wine selection selection get better each week.

My experiences are always great!

I personally have to write this comment because I have a problem with patrons attempting to drag down an establishment. The only way you could have a bad experience @ Highland Cigar? is if you brought a bad attitude in the door. I have been to many cigar establishments from Canada, DC, NY, to Florida. All have a stuffiness about them or some personal trend of the owners. Highland for example is a great breath of air in the business community. I smoke many cigars and bring business associates there all of the time. If you want a great drink and cigar with friendly un-stuffed atmosphere?Check out the Highland Cigar bar.

Been there since they opened and will continue go! Great job Brian and Rob

Pros: great people and cigars

Cons: Could be bigger

I went to this establishment a couple of times, the first time for to see it, the second time I brought a client. Both times were bad experiences. They are extremely over priced and have terrible cigar selection. No real cigar smoker would ever step foot in there.

The first time I went there, my friend asked to have his lighter refilled (all this after spending a couple of hours in there and a bar tab at $100, the waitress told him that it would be $5 to refill his lighter (first time I have ever heard that in any cigar store in Atlanta). The service was terrible. The second time, I brought a client for a meeting there. We sat at the bar and he asked the bartender behind the bar for a certain domestic beer. He was told by the bartender that and I am quoting, "We don't carry domestic beers, only high end imports because our customers are well to do, maybe you should change your tastes." As soon as we walked out, I vowed to never go in there again.

The pretentious attitude, the terrible customer service, the expensive prices, and the terrible cigar selection make this one of the worst cigar stores, if not the worst, in Atlanta. Don't be fooled by the fluff or hype or because they have a bar. No real cigar smoker in their right mind would like this place. Having experience in the cigar industry, I can tell you that there are nearly 90 real cigars stores in Atlanta you could go to that will give you a much better experience that this.

Pros: that they allow smoking and that is about it

Cons: Everything else: prices, rude employees, selection

Every cigar shop should take note! This is how it should be done. Nice selection of cigars and scotches, free wi-fi, pleasant music and attentive service! Congratulations on a job well done. I will certainly be back.

I finally tried this place out last weekend, and it was a wash. I was looking for a place to throw my buddy?s birthday bash, and after meeting their event planner out, she convinced me to give this place a shot (and it sounded perfect). Well, let me tell you: don?t let the descriptions and previous reviews fool you. Upscale? Maybe if you are the kind of person who considers Hoote** (apparently I'm not allowed to say the name of the chain restaurant where girls wear the orange shorts) an acceptable destination. Fun? I would have more fun at the local tavern that wasn?t trying to be something that it wasn?t. Friendly staff? Don?t even get me started on the staff?it wasn?t that they were not friendly (although they weren?t overly so), it was that they were very unprofessional. I didn?t come here as a substitute for a strip joint. I came to have a drink, and maybe a cigar. And even if the girls were attractive, I don?t go to bars to flirt with the staff. All in all, this place was a big letdown. It is a very average bar, that is stuck somewhere between r*dneck watering hole and high-class lounge. And they?ve managed to take the worst of each one. Sorry Sharon. The only reason I might venture back into this place is in the hopes of seeing you again. And hopefully it won?t come down to that?because this place is bad.

Let me start with a Hug for Darkness(Brian) & Robert(Rob)....... Outstanding job guys. I call The HCC" the living room"because that's how they make you feel (At Home). I never knew I could meet so many "New old Friends" until I started going to The Living Room (HCC)...... I love to puff cigars, and at the Highlands, I puff with like minded people. The staff is top notch (hey Lil Mama & Maria). The sofas.....WOW!!! The games are always on, and the liq.always flowing. So, bring your personality and be ready to buy the new house cigar and "Puff Puff, but no Pass"

My experience with Highland Cigar Co. comes from an avid cigar smoker (myself)! I believe in writing my own 1st hand accounts of places.

I happened upon this establishment after a HORRIBLE experience with another cigar club (it shall remain nameless - they know who they are and how they treat PAID members).

I was told by a friend to give Highland Cigar a try. I said why not... its worth a try.

Upon my 1st day I was greeted by Rob and Brian (owners). Each one took the time out to talk to me and my wife and make us feel at home. Since then I have become a regular paid member at Highland.

Last night they held an event with CAO cigars. It was phenomenal! Each day is a different "theme" day at Highland. From Poker Nite (no playing for money), to Movie Night (Godfather II was excellent), and even Ladies Night (Class is taught to women on cigars). It?s a great time. We ended up playing poker for a while as the drinks were flowing.

Now, Highland is more than a Cigar Company, it?s a full fledged bar. Drink prices are reasonable, and the bar staff really knows how to make a consistent good drink (Ask for Lauren). The selection of cigars isn?t that bad. Alot of nationally known sticks are located in the humidor, its gotten alot better from when I first started coming. The food is great! It?s delivered from Chin-Chin Asian place and I hear they will be having their own food within the next few weeks. So you won?t go hungry or thirsty there.

All in all Highland has a warm atmosphere for you or your date to enjoy a cigar, drink, and food in comfort. There are plenty of leather sofas and chairs & flat screens for your entertainment enjoyment. The music selection has improved and if you ask nicely they may change the TVs to a specific program if there?s not anything major going on.

If your in town stop thru. You won?t be disappointed. They may be the best Cigar Club in Atlanta and I am a MEMBER of 3 clubs currently! So I'm just not talking out my a** :)

This place is an absolute joke. Its a great example of what happens when over pretentious, rich, yuppies move into an authentic neighborhood full of real authentic local businesses. This place is gut renching. Bad service, horrible bar tenders, over priced drinks, all in an atmosphere of fake buckhead ego-riddin "I love this inner city neighborhood cause its so edgy" idiots who think they're cool. Take it back to buckhead kooks!!

This must be the only cigar shop, lounge and bar all-in-one that I have ever seen. This place is awesome! The humidor is not just some tiny bartop thing...it is a nice walk-in size. The sofas were absolutely amazing to relax in. The bar is beautiful - and so are the girls that work there. Need I say more? They made a loyal customer out of me!

I found this place during a business trip to Atlanta and went back every day that I was in town! The service was great and the selection was impressive (the new Camacho Triple Maduro rocked my world!).

I even brought my laptop and got some work done during the day while there. The pleasant music and comfortable sofas were just what I needed. I can't say enough about the ventilation system there. Not a trace of smoke!

I highly recommend Highland Cigar Co. I will definitely be back whenever I am in Atlanta!

I Love Highland !! What happened?? I used to walk in and the girls remembered my name and they had an excellent selection of cigars. Most comfortable couches in Atlanta! My waitress even recommended what turned out to be a great scotch! Last time I went in the waitress didn't speak english and they had maybe fifteen brands. No one new my name and I had to go fetch a server. The title says it all. Inconsistent service (one night it's great and the next it takes three tries to get the right scotch). Inconsistent Selection. If I'm going to drive out of the way, it should be good every time.

Great bar with friendly staff. They even let you order Johnny's Pizza if you are hungry!

This is a great bar to smoke a cigar in, in a great part of town. Even if you don't, the air isn't smoky as their HVAC seems to clean up the air quickly. There is now seating outside. I guess they read the comments here!
The leather seats are so comfortable, you could almost fall asleep while watching your favorite sport in them. The seating area is setup as a lounge, so you can get to know the people around you. I love it! If you get a private humidor, they put your name on a little plate on the front of it; very cool.

I am so glad that I've come across this gem. The welcoming warm ambiance lures you in and is complemented by the exceptional service of their very attentive waitstaff. It is not too big and overcrowded. I notice that some people listed 'not being able to smoke inside' as a con. I, however, find this to be one of the most courteous gestures. I can fully enjoy the experience of smoking my cigar without a muddle of different kinds of smoke. (And I smoke cigarettes!)

You really get this feeling that you are hanging out with your friends in your own living room--well, so you tend to believe after you sink into their plush leather couches and catch a game on either of the big screens on the wall. I was just short of kicking off my shoes but decided against it for the sake of discretion. :) It really feels like home. In fact, it will be.

This place is amazing! They seem to have thought of everything - excellent cigars, excellent scotch and other drinks, excellent ventilation, excellent sofas, excellent service.......I could go on!

There is nothing even close to this anywhere. I walked into what I assumed would be a nice cigar shop (MUCH needed in Intown Atlanta) and I found my personal Xanadu! The combination of elements there is the key. You don't have to choose between a nice place to buy a cigar, then a nice place to smoke it, then a nice place to have a drink, then a nice place to go relax, then...then...then. It is all there!

THANK YOU GUYS FOR CREATING HIGHLAND CIGAR! After one visit, you can count me as one of your regulars!

Pros: Total package! Even a customer internet station!

Cons: No cons to this place

There really are no cons to this place. Their selection of cigars is outstanding as well as their knowledge and personal enjoyment. Rob knows cigars like the back of his hand and is extremely helpful in helping you pick them out as well as giving the best advice on storing and taking care of them. And because of him, great conversation with just the right touch of attitude is dispensed daily at the bar. It's a place for cigar aficionados and novices alike. They serve only the top notch liquors at just the right price, and I could go on all day about the ventilation system and the humidor. The girls that work there are amazing. They tend to the rental humidors (yes you can rent your own!) and make every customer feel at home. They will even order food from local eateries for you! You can't beat this place, really. This neighborhood has needed a spot like this for a long time and these guys did it the RIGHT WAY! All of the excitement surrounding it is for a reason.

Cons: None whatsoever

I attended the grand opening of the bar and they had a really good crowd. I chatted with the owners, bartenders and waitresses and other patrons. The management and staff were personable and attentive. I?m a fan of good customer service and that?s exactly what I got. Needless to say I returned to the bar. I was shocked to see that they remembered me since there was such a large crowd at the grand opening. Even more shocking, the waitress asked if I wanted her to make the mixed drink I was drinking opening night. I laughed in assurance that she would not remember. Before I knew it I had my vodka, soda and 3 limes in front of me. This in itself sold me on the bar?oh and a recommendation of the perfect cigar! Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name?and they?re always glad you came.

Pros: The sofas are as comfortable as my own living room

Cons: Nowhere to sit when smoking outside

My girlfriend and I were trying to find a spot where we are able to enjoy a night out. We happened to spot Highland as we were driving by and decided to stop in for a minute and check it out. Of course it turned out an all night evening for us at Highland. My friend smokes cigarettes, and we were told it was a cigar only bar we decided on one more drink before leaving. That is before we were introduced to the wonderful Chocolate and Cinnamon cigars!! It was our first time trying a cigar. The owner took his time to explain the cigar and the process of smoking one. We paired the cigars with some wonderful Martinis and closed out the evening at Highland. We will definitely return.

My wife and I BOTH loved this place! They have the most comfortable furniture I've ever sat on (I wish it was in my living room). Nothing is left out in this place - excellent cigar selection, full bar, tvs everywhere...it's a miracle I ever went home!

The ventilation system works wonders. My wife commented on it more than once because they actually pump fresh air in all day long. Cool!

The owner said they show sports and Grey's Anatomy and other shows on certain nights. We will definitely be back.

This place is great for realxing or hanging out with friends! The staff is fun and the place looks fantastic ! It also does not have a huge smoke cloud in there, so it does not bother your eyes or make your clothes smell bad! They have 4 flat screens and free wi fi !! I highly suggest stopping by and checking it out !!! They have a full liquor bar with walk in Humidor. If you like cigars you will love it here!!!

In Short\r This Inman Park cigar bar and shop lodged one level above the Inman Park portion of N. Highland Avenue will please the stogie-obsessed. Brown leather couches and flat screen TVs sit across from a large bar boasting over 50…
