J.C. Newman Cigar Co. will reopen its Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge at Amalie Arena, home of the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning, which was closed last season due to the pandemic.
J.C. Newman has operated a Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge at the arena since 2010 and is the official cigar partner of the Tampa Bay Lightning. After the Lightning won its second Stanley Cup Final championship in a row this summer, the team celebrated with Cuesta-Rey Aristocrat cigars in their locker room.
“As Tampa is ‘Cigar City,’ we are proud to support our home hockey team,” third-generation owner and president Eric Newman said in a press release. “I can think of no better way to watch hockey than with a Diamond Crown cigar.”
