With fall in full swing, it’s the perfect time to sit back and relax with a nice, fat cigar in hand, not to mention a warming cocktail sure to get you feeling fine and cozy during these cooler months. In that spirit, make sure to check into Las Vegas’ awesome cigar bars.
Visitors can puff away on some of the finest products available Stripside at Davidoff of Geneva Cigar Bar (702.473.5001), the first cigar bar in the brand’s portfolio of boutique retail stores. The 1,500-square-foot, indoor/outdoor space at Fashion Show offers patrons the chance to indulge their cigar cravings by perusing hundreds of first-rate cigars, as well as ordering a variety of signature and specialty cocktails from the full-service bar. Specials include a daily 50 percent off bloody Marys, mimosas, mojitos and sangrias from noon-2 p.m., and on Mondays from 7-10 p.m., enjoy 50 percent off cocktails and cigars.
Divided into four areas for cigar-smoking pleasures, Montecristo Cigar Bar (866.227.5938) at Caesars Palace also offers guests specialty cocktails and fine whiskeys. Take a seat at the Signature Bar or relax in The Library or The Courtyard, and for larger groups looking to splurge, reserve the 10-seat Vault Room. Enjoy various cigar and spirit pairings, as well as flights of 1-ounce pours from labels like Glenlivet, Rémy Martin, Johnnie Walker and Jameson. Montecristo’s walk-in humidor stores more than 1,000 cigars, including Henry Clay, Padron, Arturo Fuente, San Cristobal, H. Upmann, La Flor Dominicana and Romeo Y Julieta.
For more than 15 years, Casa Fuente (702.731.5051) at The Forum Shops at Caesars has offered guests an old-school, Cuban décor-inspired space and small patio and fountain out front to enjoy always-stocked favorites like Fuente and Ashton cigars. “Most of the customers that come, come to see me,” says Michael Fayerverger, general manager of Casa Fuente. “We have a lot of very rare cigars that you can’t get anywhere, and I kind of have a thing—everything is not always out on the shelf. We put some cigars out that you can’t always get. You have to come see me and ask what I have tucked away in my closet, my cabinet.” In addition to enjoying a good cigar, Casa Fuente has some of the best mojitos in the city, especially the Tangerine mojito, definitely worth the visit.
