Sometimes, you just need a good stogie.  But with smoking on the outs in so much of the world, it’s usually best to smoke your Churchill at a place intended for it. Here are some of our favorite places to light up.

Havana Social Club

Havana is a two-story tribute to two of the best things to come out of the Caribbean: rum and cigars. You can buy a membership here, which gives you a private cigar locker/humidor and a table whenever you walk in the door. Havana has a great selection of cigars, including their own private label. You can even take a cigar rolling class.
