Raleigh, North Carolina area cigar lovers won’t have to travel far, actually not travel at all, to find a great smoking lounge, with the launch of Bon Vie Mobile Cigar Lounge, LLC. Our smoking lounge on wheels opened for business in October 2019 serving the Raleigh metropolitan area, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, Winston Salem, and Charlotte areas.
Bon Vie Mobile Cigar Lounge, LLC, owned and operated by Carolyn Beatty Dumas, aims to bring a different and unique experience to the area. Bon Vie Mobile Cigar Lounge Brings the Cigar Lounge Experience to YOU!
The Problem and Our Solution
“Finding a decent cigar is easy. But because of the many ‘no public smoking’ laws and regulations, finding a place to enjoy a cigar isn't,” Dumas said. The Bon Vie Mobile Cigar Lounge aims to remedy that with the Mobile Cigar Lounge. “It's more than a mobile lounge. It's an environment and an experience rich in luxury and personality. An elegant extension of any celebration or occasion, it's the perfect escape and meeting place—a space where you can relax and enjoy a shared passion,” the lounge owner continued.
Our market is The Triangle Region, Piedmont Triad Region, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg, NC = 4.4 million
