The Bowery Cigar

Because branding products with the Bowery namesake is considered chic these days.  Yessir, everything from boots and pants, to jackets and shirts.  All the cool kids are apparently doing it.  Now the five-year-old Velvet Cigar Lounge at 80 East Seventh Street has a new line of cigars named for our beloved thoroughfare.

All of Velvet’s cigar offerings are named for East Village locales, and the Bowery is no exception.

“The Bowery offers box-pressed perfection with a rich, unique flavor and flawless Habano wrapper,” says Dan Bsharat, Managing Partner of Velvet Cigars. “For our latest release, we wanted to offer something very special and spent 10 months developing the right blend for the most discerning palates. We are very proud of the result and the initial feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Housed in a sleek, black box with our signature Velvet red accents inside and out, The Bowery perfectly augments Velvet’s offering of prized hand-rolled cigars including The Cooper, The Astor and The Tompkins lines.

Which begs the question, what does the Bowery taste like?
