Civil Cigar Lounge to Close This Thursday. Let’s Drink the Bar Dry Before Then!

  • Tue 09/24/19

Civil Family:

We hate to have to write this, but we need to let the Civil Lounge family know, that this Thursday, September 26, 2019 will be the final night of service at Civil Cigar Lounge. Over the last 7 years we have had the pleasure of creating one of the best cigar lounges for our guests. We have had some exceptional staff, that provided good, comfortable service to a growing clientele both new-comers and regulars. We will truly miss that interaction.The Chevy Chase Pavilion had chosen to go in a different direction after losing other service and retail tenants over the last two years. We fought to stay as long as we could, using all legal means at our disposal, but our final hearing didn’t go our way. So we are at the end of this particular road.We are exploring new opportunities to bring Civil back within the District of Columbia.  We are meeting with real estate professionals next week. Hopefully we can find a space soon that will allow us to open a new and improved Civil Lounge.For now, please come by Civil Lounge beginning at 4:00 PM daily and help us drink the bar dry! All drinks will be 50% off through closing. This includes ALL the high-end spirits like: Bowmore 25, Macallan Rare Cask, Pappy van Winkle, Hennessy Paradis, just to name a few.  Cigars will also be discounted to 50% off lounge pricing.Thank you to the staff and the guests we got to know. We will see you all in the very near future and as always remember the Civil Lounge mantra: Drink. Smoke. Eat.

Thank you for 7 great years!

John Anderson & Matt Krimm
