Best Places to Smoke a Cigar


While a quality cigar by itself is a great way to kick back and relax after a long day, it is only a portion of what makes an unforgettable cigar smoking experience. We're firm believers that you need the right smoke spot to enjoy it properly.

Fortunately, the world is full of them! Here are five of our favorites:

1) Smoke a Cigar at a bar or—even better—a cigar lounge

The number of places where you can publicly enjoy a cigar is for the most part shrinking. But in certain countries, states, and cities, you can still kick back and find a great place to fire up a cigar. A bar that allows it can be nice because you've got access to a massive liquor cabinet, right at your fingertips.

A full-on cigar lounge, of course, is also an amazing place to enjoy a smoke with great company. You'll have all the accessories you need, and will no doubt get amazing recommendations on future smokes, but the air might be filled with a lot of different smoke flavors, making it hard to focus on your own stick, so just keep that in mind on your next visit.

2) Smoke a Cigar at your cigar lounge at home

Who needs a home office when you can have a home cigar lounge? Toss the printer and put in a turntable for old jazz, blues, and classic rock from bygone eras. Throw away the office chair and get that killer leather lounger you have been eyeing for years—you deserve it!

Don’t have a formal cigar lounge? That’s ok! Just head down to the basement and stream your favorite tunes, maybe grab a beer from the mini-fridge, you do you.

3) Smoke a Cigar relaxing in the hot tub

It’s super relaxing. A short cigar is probably the perfect length for a session in the hot tub. But make sure to bring an ashtray—in fact, why not a floating one? Just don't ash in the water—that’s just not cool.

4) Smoke a Cigar while on vacation

Literally, any location is amazing for lighting up when you're on vacation. On the beach, by the pool, at the tables in the casino, on your balcony porch while you watch the sunset. You've worked hard, now it's time to kick back and enjoy. While hard to resist, try not to bring cigars from home—sample the local wares, you never know what you may find!

5) Smoke a Cigar in your own backyard

At the end of the day, there's really no place like home. You just can't beat the view from your own porch or backyard chair. Light up and relish the joys of property ownership. Bring out the speaker and try not to think too much about the yard work. After all, it can be put off until tomorrow, right?
