JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Cutters Cigars and Spirits, Alpharetta’s deluxe smoking club offering a wide variety of cigars has moved uptown – in more ways than one.

It has a new location, still on Windward Parkway but almost in Milton now. Its 4915 Windward address is next door to Mambo’s Café (across the street from Kroger) and is a definite step up in class.

Cutters owner/partner Russ Sutton always had a friendly atmosphere where patrons were invited to share their smoking pleasure at Cutters with friends – either catching the game on TV or outside on the veranda.

The new Cutters has more of everything plus jazzy new extras. The new club is 4,000 square feet, three times the space of the former location. In addition to walk-in humidor twice the size of the old one, it has full bar and has gone business friendly.

Patrons can sit back and enjoy a cappuccino or an expresso if they want.

It has a meeting room (available for hire) that also serves individual business clients who want a quiet place – Wi-Fii of course – to conduct business outside the office or between appointments.

Sutton’s new partner Ken Nettuno says Cutters is not changing so much as expanding to accommodate more clients and provide a better experience.

“We have a state-of-the-art air cleansing system that smokers and non-smokers will appreciate,” Nettuno said. “And we will have live music, understated but a pleasant amenity. Friday nights will be acoustic. We have a great jazz combo that plays also.”

Sutton agreed the location is all about making it a place people will enjoy if only to hang out for a while. “And we have always catered to our women clients so we are going all out to see that their experience is enhanced and enjoyable as well,” he said. “We will make everyone comfortable, the air is clear and the drinks are fresh. We are in the hospitality business.”

Nettuno echoed those thoughts. It’s a place with quality music indoors and out on the patio. Regulars can keep their tobacco in one of Cutters’ personal humidors.

“We want to be a place to bring the wife and be comfortable. It is a place to bring business guests after a dinner at Cabernet’s to sit and relax,” Nettuno said. “And it is one of only three Avo Lounges where you can get Davidoff’s Avo cigars.”

When Castro took Cuba, Davidoff took his Cuban seeds and left the island to build an internationally known brand. In addition to Davidoff, Cutters carries 38 premium cigar brands grown in seven countries.

Sutton said Cutters simply outgrew the old spot.

“We’ve been growing the business 30 percent every year. And a third of our customers are from out of town,” he said. “We’ve become a cigar beacon for the traveling community. And we have 1,800 hotel rooms just down the street on this exit off 400.”

Throw in nearby Avalon, and Cutters can draw from any number of clients who like a fine cigar.

“We like to say we add value to the cigar experience,” Sutton said.
