Smokey's was established in 2015 with the first Mobile Cigar Lounge in Texas. The mobile lounge was retired in 2020.
In 2018 Chris Walling teamed up with Corey Burgess, with a pen and a napkin (numerous cigars) they drew up an idea for a brick n mortar shop.
On February 1st, 2019 Smokey's Cigar Lounge opened for business. Today Smokey's is still moving strong and has become known as one of the best little cigar lounges in the Texas Hill Country.
In October of 2023 Chris and Corey retired from the cigar lounge business and handed the reins over to Tracy Perez, a Smokey's patron and avid cigar smoker. She admired what Chris and Corey had created and wanted to keep the spirit of Smokey's alive.
In December of 2023, Smokey's lease expired and had to move to a new location. Tracy's love of Smokey's and the people it attracted inspired her to design and build a slightly larger version of Smokeys with a few more creature comforts. The new Smokey's, like the old, is alive and well today.
