Ten Best Cigar Bars in the United States

Posted by on Jul 10, 2014

Cigar bars accommodate the cigar aficionado by providing an atmosphere conducive to relaxing and sharing a drink along with a fine smoke. Cigar bars tend to be more relaxing, mellow places than other kinds of bars.

Most cigar bars sell cigars and cigar paraphernalia, and some even serve food and alcohol. If you want to start collecting cigars, but your bride finds them disgusting, many cigar bars will offer space in their humidors for regulars to store their budding collections.

If your groom or your best man enjoys a great smoke, consider a relaxing, low-key bachelor party at one of the country’s best cigar bars.
