    Tobacco Exchange: Good Place to People Watch

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The store is located on Magazine Street, one if the most well known shopping streets, in the old Orphanage Building, which is on the National Historic Register. It has a large walk in humidor, a smoking lounge, and a large covered porch for you to sit outdoors and have a beer, enjoy your stogie and people watch.

    If you've never seen a cigar rolled, you have to drop by this place...even you don't smoke. You will enjoy the friendliness of the staff and the rustic ambiance of the place. I had heard about the place before I got there and just had to stop in and pick up a few things. Apparently, this also where Emeril and Bill Cosby get their cigars when they are in town. So you never know who may walk in the door while you are waiting for your order. It's open until midnight every night so it's the perfect place to drop by while you are in he French Quarter at night.

    The Cigar Factory: Cigars and Tobacco

    Sign on the street

    Neither my husband nor I smoke. But my long deceased grandfather did smoke cigars, and I have at least one son-in-law who also smokes cigars.

    When we lived in Key West, there were little houses along Duval Street where people still worked hand-rolling cigars. So I was interested to find that something of the same sort occurs in New Orleans. But I know nothing about cigars, so I was not really tempted to go in and buy any.

    The Decatur Street store hours are:
    Open Daily
    10am - 10pm Sunday - Thursday
    10am - 11pm Friday and Saturday

    What to buy: Their website says:

    We roll aged Dominican, Honduran and Nicaraguan Tobaccos to create three lines of distinctive cigars that compliment each of our unique wrappers.

    Plantation Reserve - A smooth mild blend in a Connecticut Shade Wrapper.

    Vieux Carre - Robust and distinctive blend in a Cameroon African Wrapper.

    Tres Hermanos - Hearty full bodied smoke, rich in flavor with a Maduro Wrapper.

    Cigar Factory New Orleans: Smelly Cigars

    Cigar Factory

    It is not really smelly in here, but in fact full of a the rich aroma of cigar tobacco. It will entice you from street before you even enter the shop. As you enter you will notice Latino men at a counter rolling cigars. They were happy to pose for a photo.

    To your left is a giant walk in humidore where you can walk in and make your choices. Great place to pick up fresh cigars for my hubby.

    Walgreens!: Smokeless Tobacco is hard to find

    by Neesie Written Mar 3, 2005

    Being in the French Quarter is such a treat for the senses! It is like no other place, and I wouldn't want it to ever change. However, one morning I decided to buy my husband a tin of his favorite chewing tobacco because I noticed he was running low.

    I walked to several corner grocery stores and while they sold cigarettes they seemed puzzled as to what "Copenhagen" was. Chewing tobacco, I explained. No, they didn't have any.

    Luckily, I spotted a Walgreen's on Decatur Street near Jackson Square. The outside of the old brick building did not look like a Walgreen's, but that's the charm. Inside, it was just like my Walgreen's back home.
