NK Cigar Lounge – Westlake Village, CA

Thousand Oaks has a very different strip-mall layout than most of Southern California.  Driving down the main street you’d be hard pressed to find a grocery store, flower shop or any other small business- they’re artfully hidden behind layers of trees, and designed in such a way as to make a large space seem small and intimate.  It’s in one of these camouflaged strip malls that NK Cigar Lounge is nestled.

A large shop, NK makes great use of its long, L-shaped layout by having several intimate, distinct seating areas, a giant TV in the far corner, and a pool table right in the center of the lounge.  Around the outside there is plenty of outdoor seating, and a parade of shoppers to watch.

The humidor is well-stocked, and boasts a house-blend made by the same guys who produce the Grand Habano line.  A full Nicaraguan cigar, we found it pleasantly medium-bodied with a full, peppery taste.

As the ace up its sleeve, the owner Kumar shows off his knowledge of fine wine, beer and booze with a wall of liquor, as well as the requisite beer and wine license.  Escape from the heat, grab a drink, and settle in to this treasure.

NK Cigar Lounge is located at 2803 Agoura Road, Westlake Village, CA.  www.nkcigarlounge.com
