About Us

zarka-cigar-lounge-aboutThe Zarka Story

Local businessman Zack Abou had a vision of creating an environment where curious beginners and discerning aficionados alike could feel at home. He wanted an atmosphere that catered to the daily cigar smoker, the couples seeking a unique nightlife experience, and everyone in between. So in May 2007, he opened the doors to Zarka Cigar Lounge – one of the Temecula Valley’s best kept secrets. Our state-of-the-art walk-in humidor houses the largest selection of cigars on the west coast, and has hard to find brands such as Diamond Crown, Padron, Opus X, and Liga Privada readily available. Once your perfect cigar has been selected, our plush sprawling private lounge awaits you with overstuffed couches, billiards, poker tables, and flat screens televisions on every wall. We are proud to offer a full bar – boasting beer, wine, and a wide range of liquor to compliment your smoking experience. Zack’s decades of experience coupled with a “family first” attitude make Zarka Cigar Lounge an unforgettable place you’ll want to visit time and time again.
