The Livery Cigar Emporium is a great hang out spot for the 30 and up crowd, with a wide selection of both cigars and cocktails. They also host monthly events, such as live bands and performances.
The Cigar and Rose’ Festival is a celebration of luxury and fine things for a purpose. The festival is a curated experience from your arrival for cigar and rose’ lovers alike. Come dressed to impress in your best. The outfits are part of the fun and luxury feel of the festival.
This year’s event is Sunday, June 9 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the luxurious and intimate lakeside Mariani Venue in Pembroke, NC. The venue features lush garden spaces, a gorgeous lake view from the entire property, and walking trails. Individual tickets range from $85 to $125.
Attendees can choose the one that includes food or the one that doesn’t. There are two options for individual VIP ticket holders, VIP with just food and VIP with food and indoor seating option (summer is coming). For groups of 4 and 6, there are VIP tables available that include personal waiters, a bottle of rose’, swag bags, and cigars (and hookah) ranging from $800-$1200. For those interested in being a vendor, vending tickets can be purchased for $150. This is a great opportunity for small businesses to showcase and sell their brands.
Along with smooth cigars and crisp Rose’, there will be live music provided by a DJ and live band, plenty of photo opportunities, and a 5-star catered Italian lunch by the venue. Get ready for a day of relaxation in your finest hues of pink, among fellow connoisseurs, dining on the finest Italian cuisine while sipping on perfectly paired Rose’ and finishing it off with the perfect smoke.

This year’s event is not just a party, it’s a party with a purpose.
“Myself and Andre Thomas have previously hosted various events throughout Fayetteville and we have always discussed how can we host an event focused on giving back to the community. This brought about the conversation of organizing an event sponsored by The Sip Room and The Livery Cigar Emporium in support of our Nonprofit organization CMF Housing Solutions and Sisters with a Purpose Foundation,” said Satina Epps-Thomas of the purpose behind this year’s event.
Sisters with a Purpose Foundation was founded by Thomas and two other passionate women entrepreneurs. The foundation's focus is to help women find and keep gainful employment, and housing and encourage and foster entrepreneurship. Both organizations are geared toward securing housing for individuals and families. Homelessness is something that affects around nine- thousand North Carolinians on any given night, according to endhomelss.org. Organizations such as these are important and so are their founders.
