LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The rich enticing aroma of premium tobacco welcomes cigar aficionados to Fuego by Sosa Cigars, an upscale cigar bar now open at Downtown Disney Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World Resort.

Cigar connoisseurs can savor a smoke and enjoy other tobacco products in an intimate lounge setting where premium wine, beer, spirits, plus specialty coffees and other non-alcoholic beverages are served daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

The new lounge is a tribute to four generations of the Sosa family with pictures of family members decorating the walls. The gathering place blends contemporary furnishings and high tech with old-world charm. Pendant-style light fixtures adorn the room while a hand-crafted glass bar top resembles a floating block of ice. The back bar is illuminated with silhouettes of tobacco leaves and back-lit with images of fire. Custom-designed, hand-crafted wooden humidors hold more than 100 facings of hand-rolled premium cigars -- from the legendary Fuente Fuente Opus X to the highly rated house-branded Sosa cigars. An expanded terrace offers guests outdoor seating as well.

"The Sosa family is honored to open a second location at Downtown Disney, which will allow guests to indulge in life's simple pleasures," said Alex Sosa, director of operations.

Sosa Family Cigars and Walt Disney World Resort have enjoyed a long-standing relationship over the past ten years. Downtown Disney West Side is also home to Sosa Family Cigars, a premium cigar store showcasing a large walk-in humidor and the art of hand-rolling cigars.
