The story behind TG Cigar Lounge


Negest Dawit, affectionately called TG by friends and family, is defining what it means to be a strong, savvy businesswoman! Originally from Ethiopia, TG has made her way to our Nation’s Capitol bringing her wisdom, experience, and genuine passion for her business to her 9th Street cigar shop – TG Cigar Lounge.


What started out as a small sales job at Presidential Cigars at Union Station back in 2004 quickly turned into a passion that drove her to want to open her own cigar shop. With the support of her manager and the connections she made at Presidential Cigars, TG bit the bullet and found a tiny, dusty storefront which she knew right away was the perfect spot to call her own. It took some time, research, renovation, and a lot of learning the ways of Washington DC before she finally opened her own shop – making her Washington DC’s only female cigar store owner.


Today, TG Cigar Lounge has a $500,000 inventory of cigars with more than 3,500 customers ranging from businessmen, politicians, and cigar club members – one third of her customers are women! She purchased the building located on 1120 9th Street in 2020 and spend a year in renovating and building the new Cigar Lounge. This cigar shop offers top quality cigars as well as a fully stocked bar and lounge area for people to smoke, drink, and relax in style. TG takes pride in getting to know her customers and being able to connect with them, which is what makes this Washington DC cigar lounge so unique and inviting to its customers!
