The
Story

Like most passions turned new business ventures;
ours starts with a dream. Literally.

While sitting around a fire in the middle of winter enjoying cigars, our partner told us about his prophetic dream. In this dream he vividly described being surrounded by friends, a cigar in one hand and a drink in the other, while relaxing in what can only be described as his lounge. However, this is not as typical as you may think. He went on to tell us that in his dream he knew it was very special...very unique. It was the decor, the atmosphere, the music, the patrons, the service, the attire. What he was describing was the Roaring Twenties.

Excited by the story, we spent the rest of the night brainstorming and conceptualizing. All of it rooted from one fundamental question, “Can a place like this truly exist today?” Needless to say, we’re making that dream a reality.

Big Six

A slang term used from the 1920s to describe a strong man, and to name the new and powerful six cylinder engines.

"Great men and great cigars have always gone together, so it's no surprise that some of the century's most influential and popular figures have embraced this time-honored pastime. From the moment that King Edward VII uttered his famous proclamation in 1901, cigar smoking has been a pleasant diversion, often an ingrained habit, for politicians, movie stars and a host of other famous partakers."

— Excerpt from Cigar Aficinado

It’s this very definition, time-honored tradition, and rich history that was instilled in naming our company the “Big Six”.
