United Cigars is proud to announce the opening of a new flagship lounge, The Red Anchor Lounge at Two Guys Smoke Shop Nashua. Over the past several years, retailers around the United States have partnered with United Cigars to have a branded lounge at their store, and Nashua was a perfect location to drop anchor.
The 2500 square foot lounge has rich burgundy colored walls adorned with various anchors, and comfortable seating for 60 people. A unique feature of the Red Anchor Lounge is their airplane drink cart which trained staff use to provide table side cocktail service to their patrons.
“When I was developing a new lounge space at our Nashua location, honoring the rich legacy of Red Anchor was an easy decision.” Said David Garofalo owner of Two Guys Smoke Shop. “Red Anchor was an immediate favorite of our customers, and we invite cigar consumers from around the country to come enjoy a drink, and a Red Anchor cigar with us in Nashua!”
Launched in 1772, Red Anchor was created by Albertus Hillen Sigarenfabriek in Delft, Holland. The brand was passed down through the family until 1890 when it was sold to Martinus Holland who continued to expand the brand into a tin format through the early 1900s until the brand went out of business in 1937. In 2022, United Cigars reignited the 250 year old brand with a familiar Dutch connection, the Kelner Family, at Hendrik Kelner Jr.’s Kelner Boutique Factory in the Dominican Republic.
Presently there are two other United Cigar lounges across the country: Atabey Lounge at Industrial Cigars in Frisco, Texas and Byron Cigar Lounge in Schaumburg, Illinois.
The Red Anchor Lounge is open seven days a week, and is located at 15 Spit Brook Rd, Nashua, NH. Retailers interested in developing a United Cigars branded lounge for their store should contact Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars.
