TG Cigar Lounge (Photo via Google Maps)Cigar enthusiasts soon might have a place to drink and smoke outdoors in Shaw away from their homes and nonsmokers.

TG Cigar Lounge at 1118 9th St. NW has received permission to build an outdoor summer garden in its backyard, according to permit filings the D.C. government released last week. The space would have room for 36 people, allowing the lounge to accommodate 86 people inside and out.

A representative of the lounge wasn’t immediately available to comment.

In addition to the lounge, TG Cigar runs a full-service tobacco shop with cigars, pipes and other smoking accessories available for sale.

    Love it.

    I am a dc resident and I love tg cigars. The neighborhood needs an establishment of this quality and calibre. Tg is a dc resident and small business owner and we need to support her growth.

  • Aaron D.

    I frequent TG Cigars daily. I love the venue because it’s laid back and not loud and boisterous like other similar spots. I live close by and can’t think of another spot like it.

    Here yea…hear…yea…here yea…the meeting of the Good Time Gang Cigar Club will now come to order. This is what I proclaim each week as I bring together cigar smokers from around the DMV for our weekly gathering at TG’S. This is a great place to enjoy premium hand rolled cigars in a very upscale atmosphere. As a self-proclaimed cigar enthusiast and as the former owner of BlackSmoke Cigar Company, I know a little about cigars and customer service, and I say without reservation that you will not find a more customer friendly cigar establishment in the Washington metropolitan area. TG Cigar Lounge is a jewel in what was once an undeserved community. If this is the new Washington, DC, I love it. ……Mark – Mayor of the Good Time Gang Cigar Club.

    We’ve been waiting for a spot like this for quite a while: a cigar lounge that is welcoming, more so accommodating, to lady cigar smokers! Friendly staff, knowledgeable cigar stewards and a solid wine selection. Great job, TG!

    This is a really great place to relax, with great service and friendly people. They have an excellent cigar selection and the bar service can’t be beat. The happy hour is probably one of the best you can get in the area. Really makes the neighborhood unique and special where people of all walks of life can come to chill.

  • Nathan Hunter

    Great addition to an already GREAT establishment. The owner is fantastic and the staff is always very accommodating. The outside addition is a great compliment to the inside Plush lounge. Can’t wait until it opens!

  • “DAR”

    I have been a loyal customer of TG Cigars since it’s opening. The renovation only enhanced the Shaw area for cigar enthusiasts and novice cigar smokers. TG Cigars will, is and should remain a staple here within Shaw. Furthermore I’m a DC resident approaching close to twenty years of residency and I consider DC my home. TG Cigars will strive to enhance the neighborhood, provide excellent community relations and maintain a multitude of exceptional relationships with government, business and customer stakeholders. A great fit not only for Shaw but for Washington, DC.

  • Rochelle

    TGS is the best kept secret Cigar lounge, friendly staff, great cigar selection and mature adult smokers. Can’t wait for the outdoor patio to open. Great place to chill.

  • Stag99

    As a female cigar smoker TG’s offers a great selection of cigars and a friendly laid back environment. Along with very knowledgable staff they also have a great selection of beverages to accompany the different types of cigars. In addition they offer free wifi and cell phone outlets. While TG’s has great indoor filters an outdoor section in the warm weather will be a huge bonus to the overall experience. I cannot wait for the outdoor section to open.
