Review: Taboo Cigar and Cocktail Lounge

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name

Cheers theme song

A catchy tune, friendly face, and a welcoming place, each of these phrases describes the bar Cheers from the show of the same name that ran during the 80’s. These phrases could also describe Taboo Cigar and Cocktail lounge located in North Richland Hills, Texas.

I remember when I first walked into the lounge. It was a Sunday afternoon and had just stopped in to take a look around and get a quick drink. Three hours later I left having made new friends and discovered what was one of the best kept secrets of the area.

The lounge has two main areas with a well stocked bar and humidor that separates them. The main sitting area consists of a nice leather sectional along with captains chairs and multiple TV’s which will always be showing the latest game of the season. You will find the same in the members area where the captains chairs are recliners along with lockers which you can rent to keep your own humidor if that is your pleasure.

The humidor hosts cigars from 20 different labels and multiple selections of each. With your standard sticks from Oliva, Montecristo, Arturo Fuente, Padron, and La Flor Dominicana you will find your favorite stick for your smoking pleasure or may find a new blend to expand your tastings. Taboo is also the home to their own special blend of cigars which are the top two best sellers. The Taboo Twist and Habano Sun Grown maduro will be a welcome addition to your own humidor.

If you have time when you stop by for a smoke you can pair your cigar with your favorite Scotch, Bourbon, Whiskey, or Cocktail. The bartenders are well versed in a variety of cocktails including your Old Fashioned, Whiskey Sour, Manhattan, Filthy Martini. If you tend to lean towards a nice Scotch then I would have to recommend the Aberlour 12 year that they have on stock.

So if you happen to be in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and are looking for a good Cigar and drink then head on over to Taboo Cigar and Cocktail Lounge. You won’t be disappointed.
