Cutter’s Lounge & Cigar Bar
100 W. Trade St., Charlotte
HOURS: Mon.–Sat. 4–11:30 p.m.
Tucked away in the Charlotte Marriott City Center, Cutter’s feels more like a private club than a hotel lounge. Swirls of smoke mix with the dark wood and rich leather in one of the few Uptown spots that welcomes cigar smokers.
A selection of cigars is available from the on-site humidor (though it tends to be stocked with more common brands like Cohiba and Montecristo—if you’re looking for a specialty cigar you might not find it here).
It’s not just hotel guests that frequent the lounge; it’s a favorite spot for local cigar aficionados and executives who negotiate business deals over a glass of single-malt scotch or rare port in the upscale lounge.
Cutter’s frequently hosts special events such as cigar samplings.
