A cigar lounge is a great after hours place to get business done, or enjoy some much deserved R&R with your friends or business associates. We've been in Dallas for a long time, and during that time cigar lounges have come and gone, but the ones recommended below have stood the test of time. Here are five of the absolute best Dallas cigar lounges. Enjoy!

1. Javier’s - This restaurant legend has been a Dallas institution since 1977. With a separate lounge and cigar bar, this haunt is a late night hot spot for business types and youngish up-and-comers. Get yourself a Mexican Martini and pick your stick right from their wall humidor (if you bring your own there is a cutting fee). It’s posh, and a nice place to warm up by a fireplace on a chilly night. Website | Facebook | Twitter

2. Havana Social Club - Located in Victory Park, this lounge attracts out-of-towners and locals. If you’re planning on catching a Stars or Mavs game, make sure you allow some time before or after to check this place out. Make some small talk with the bartenders and order a drink at this lounge/rum bar and you'll feel like you're in Havana; a Cuba Libre seems appropriate. Website | Facebook | Twitter

3. Cigar Lounge at Chamberlin’s - Even though this lounge is not in Dallas proper (Addison), we had to mention it on this list. The lounge is right next to Chamberlin’s Steak & Chop House, which was named one of Bon Appetit's top new restaurants shortly after opening in 1993. The restaurant has won a myriad of awards since that time, and owner Richard  Chamberlain is considered one of America's leading chefs. With a spacious lounge and wifi, members of the “Club 48” can hold business meetings while relaxing. Website | Facebook | Twitter

4. Up In Smoke -  You'll occasionally run into ex-Cowboys or ex-governors at Up in Smoke in Uptown.  The back lounge is adorned with leather chairs and plasma TVs. Join their monthly membership club for permanent access, plus enjoy 10% off every purchase for life. It’s BYOB, so bring your scotch, whiskey, or whatever you like, and they’ll take care of your glassware and ice. Website | Facebook | Twitter

5. Cigar Art - This place is relatively new on the scene and located in the heart of the Bishops Arts District.What started as a small corner in a consignment shop, turned into a full-fledged cigar lounge with lockers, furniture, and a mixers bar. It’s still BYOB, but a tobacconist with bartending skills  will make your drink for you, if you bring the base. They specialize in microblends and artisian cigars, so don't expect you find big name brands. Try something new.  Website | Facebook | Twitter
