Introducing "Cigar Park" the brainchild of cigar lover Steven Casalino. You may recognize Casalino’s name as the maker of CigarzUp, a uniquely  designed cigar rest attachable to a bottle.

“After doing a ton of events promoting my product CigarzUp, I wanted to stand out and be unique other than just having an ordinary table and tent setup,” says Casalino. “I started modifying a 1978 Cushman Scooter to take to events and sell my product from, and then the opportunity to buy an airstream came about, so I purchased one.”

Casalino remembers sitting inside the airstream while smoking a cigar and wondering what to do with it. That is when the idea to create a cigar lounge popped into his head. Prior to redesigning the airstream, Casalino had built and designed car and home interiors, and now he was adding a 30-foot land yacht to his resume.

“I thought this was going to be [a] fun challenge,” says Casalino. “ I gutted it to the bones and custom designed and built every square inch  in only three months’ time.”

So how does it work?  Cigar Park books for a minimum of three hours. Then you choose a cigar package that will meet any budget. They offer a package that allows for guests to choose any cigars included in their package, or the person renting the Cigar Park can choose to have the guests purchase each cigar individually without a package. Casalino can also remove all their cigars and feature one brand or cigar company exclusively.

“In most cases, we can provide just about any premium cigar selection they request,” says Casalino. “Our humidor holds about 30-plus boxes of premium cigars.”

And if you get thirsty, they offer coffee, expresso, sparking and flat waters, soft drinks, and even bottle service.

“And there’s always something to eat!” Casalino adds.

Cigar Park comfortably seats 12 guests inside and has additional seating outside as well as a dominos table. They have crisp air conditioning to keep guests comfortable in the Florida heat, a top-of-the-line ventilation system, custom-made humidor, Bose surround sound, 42-inch smart TVs, custom lighting, a coffee bar, and a merchandising display case.

“All the comforts of a modern cigar lounge, only better!” Casalino says.

I, for one, cannot wait to try this out.
