Cigar Frog's Home

Martha & Joe Dunham

Midlanders need a quiet place to go after the symphony or theater where they can talk and have a glass of beer or wine," said Mrs. Dunham, an accountant.

"Come enjoy our tropical atmosphere with overstuffed furniture and a humidor where the cigars are kept." Notwithstanding the men's club decor, cigar bars have long since surrendered their "men only" status because cigar makers like Perdomo, Victor Sinclair, Cohiba, Arturo Fuente, Padron, CAO, Punch and Excalibur have an increasing number of women afficiandos, including Mrs. Dunham.

"Cigar Frogs compliments the restaurants we have downtown and stay open until midnight Monday through Saturday," she said. "We've bought a $30,000 state-of-the-art ventilation system and a player piano to complement the local musicians who will play piano and acoustic guitars."

Her husband, a real estate investor who sold three drycleaning shops in Odessa five years ago and owns the Pets at Peace Cemetery on Business 20, has spent more than $300,000 to make it a prototype cigar bar, though imported cigarettes will be sold, along with stogies costing from $4 to $30 each.

For a $600 annual membership, you will have a locker in the humidor and admittance to the members only room. Behind the 2,500 square foot interior is a 1,000 square foot patio with firepit tables featuring gas burners and lava rocks to thwart cold weather.

The city of Midland has approved the presence of 200 people inside and 50 on the patio, but indoor seating will be limited to 30-40, Dunham said.

A 5-foot-tall Senor Sapo will greet you at the entrance and a more compact gentleman, sporting a maroon ascot, supports all the tables.

When asked the characteristics of a good cigar, Dunham said, "That it's well rolled and has a good blend of aged tobaccos.

"It's a personal preference. I like a medium. You're not supposed to inhale the smoke. It's meant to be savored like a fine wine."

Although cigars range widely in price, Dunham said good quality may be obtained for $8 to $10.

Message: Planning on stopping in on Saturday night. Heard and read nothing but great things, we are really looking forward to it! Cigar Frog's sounds exactly like the kind of place I love to hang out, but have not found outside of Dallas and Austin. See you Saturday night!

Message: The staff and management of Cigar Frog's is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and most of all friendly. Myself and two friends were in town for a funeral and were looking for a good place to relax and take our minds off things. Cigar Frog's was the best possible place we could have found! From the well stocked humidor, to the wide selection of beers, and finally to the relaxing patio out back. Thanks so much for making a difficult time much more bearable! I only wish that I wasn't 1600 miles away.

Message: Now the only question in town is who will start to carry Tatuaje cigars. Don Pepin is the hottest cigar maker in the non cuban market right now and no one in town has more than single line he makes (My Father is all that I have found.) Doesn't anyone care? You do have a great building. I can't wait to see how you develop over time. Nice addition. Thanks

Message: WOW! This place is truly unique. A much needed addition to Midland's downtown area. Had a great time here with friends this past holiday weekend. It was nice to talk about the establishment with Joe and Martha too. They are too kind.

Message: I visited Saturday evening with my Father-In-Law, Bob Lovinggood, and had a wonderful time. I couldn't wait to get to work (on a Monday morning no less..) and brag to my co-manager about the experience! He immediately looked online to find your website!!! He is jealous and I would put money on him visiting Midland just to check out Cigar Frogs!!
