The Dallas cigar market can be very convoluted. There are many shops that offer many things. Cigars, like beer, can be offered anywhere, but the places that serve you that beer van vary widely. Dallas cigar shops are no different. Every shop has its own selection, vibe, customer base and personality.
Some shops in the Dallas cigar market offer a very plush, cozy lounge. Some shops in the Dallas cigar market offer no seating, just pure retail. Shop. Select. Buy. Leave. Repeat. Some cigar shops in Dallas offer private lounges; some offer memberships and lockers, some just offer lockers. Most of the cigar shops in Dallas offer a wide variety of the basics, like Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, Macanudo, Punch and Partagas. Often shops offer high caliber and name recognizable cigars like Padron, Rocky Patel and AVO. Once in a while a cigar shop that has a little more boutique selection will offer brands like Illusione, RoMa Craft and Aganorsa. These brands are only known to those who read about cigars and spend a bit more time looking into the smaller tobacco sources and productions. INCA also falls into that category; the only cigar made in Peru.
I would invite you to first of all, buy a cigar and enjoy it wherever you are, then decide if you want to start spending time in a shop by just having a seat with the owner and getting a feel for the vibe of the place. Shops are like bars; plenty of selection, environments vary extremely!
