You might know him as the official voice of the Brooklyn Nets and the Barclays Center. You might know him from his decade-plus of experience announcing professional boxing, MMA, and Muay Thai all over the world. You might recognize his epic dreadlocks because he's been a Brooklyn fixture for so long. But when you head over to his eponymous Brooklyn Cigar Lounge, David Diamante is just the welcoming owner and proprieter, a cigar enthusiast who wants to make sure you have a great time in his place. David has created his own line of highly-rated, hand-rolled cigars, which can be exclusively found at Diamante's, and last night he invited out some of Brooklyn's finest yelpers for a smoke. Check out the reviews and the photos from the event here, and read on for more fun.
If there's one thing that's for sure, it's that this cozy cigar lounge is one of a kind. As Deoroop M insists, "Diamante's is the definition of original. Having constructed the entire place with his bare two hands, to rolling each and every single cigar, David has established something truly unique and special in the heart of downtown Brooklyn. Not to mention that David is a cigar connoisseur; a true treasure trove of cigar knowledge." Pop by anytime and he's bound to be there, ready with a recommendation or just a story.
The true goal of the space isn't just a place where folks can enjoy quality cigars, but it's also a hub of the neighborhood, a place to see friends and spend a little time relaxing. We couldn't say it better than Dianne R: "Many many thanks to Dave for your hospitality and for letting us try your custom blended cigars, chatting and laughing with us, and letting us chillax in your "living room." It's nice to find such a cozy spot where good company and conversation is paramount. I can't wait to come back here (maybe for ladies' night!)!"
See you all over there soon…
