This past holiday season we had the pleasure of visiting Burn by Rocky Patel in Naples Florida. This is the first of many lounge reviews we will be doing here at Stogie Press and hope to feature a new lounge every month. Burn by Rocky Patel stocks Rocky’s extensive line of cigars along with many other sought after cigars from other manufacturers.
Their website explains:
Burn by Rocky Patel is an evolution in cigar lounges. Featuring a design that draws on an exotic mix of Mediterranean, Asian, and Cuban cultures. Burn is a sanctuary for those who enjoy fine cigars and premium spirits. Created to offer perfection in service, Burn by Rocky Patel is the perfect place to enjoy life’s pleasures.
I have to agree with this statement as walking into Burn by Rocky Patel you are warmly greeted by the staff. You are even be greeted by a staff member assigned to the large walk-in humidor to assist you in your selection for the evening.
The entrance to the Burn Lounge is hard to miss, it has two large patio areas glowing in an orange hue and the words “Burn by Rocky Patel” gleaming in orange and black on the corner of the building.
It is like India meets LA. with eastern decor and lots of spicy colors like saffron, yellow, burnt orange, celadon green and deep denim blue mixed with browns and golds. It has an overall manly feel to it but that does not keep the the ladies from coming out. The night we were there 4 ladies were celebrating a ladies night out birthday party and there were quite a few couples relaxing and enjoying their evening smokes.
There was a lone guitar player/singer the evening we visited for entertainment. He was laying down some serious licks and classic songs. The sound was not overbearing and it was easy to have a conversation whilst the music was playing.
The well stocked and maintained humidor includes many of your favorite sticks and not just from Rocky Patel. I also includes private lockers you can rent if you are a frequent visitor .
The outdoor patios have large heaters for those cool late autumn and winter Florida nights.
The bathrooms are attended too with a staff attendant and are immaculate.
There is a daily happy hour that runs from 2-7 PM and this is the time you will want to load up on those Rocky Patel cigars as they are 20% off during happy hour (limit 10 – excluding boxes), not to mention 1/2 off all wine selection, $4.00 Calls and Draft beer.
If you are in the hospitality business they have special 50% off discounts on all calls, draft beers & house wines during special hospitality nights.
The bar is stocked with the finest libations so sit back and enjoy your favorite beverage and fire up your best cigar, relax with your friends or just by yourself, I am sure you will enjoy the company and the atmosphere of the Burn by Rocky Patel.
