Currently, there are dozens of locations in the greater Boston area where you can go to purchase an authentic cigar. We have compiled a list of Boston area cigar bars you need to know about.

As the weather turns warmer, people tend to get out more and seek locations that offer a lounge-style atmosphere. A local cigar bar can serve as a destination gathering or as your nightcap spot to wind down. Holt’s Clubhouse describes the setting as, “The best cigar bars are outfitted with a powerful air purification system, meaning your spouse or non-cigar-smoking friends won’t mind hanging out with you while you smoke. This is the ultimate environment to enjoy a cigar.”

Furthermore, it is not uncommon to find cigar bars offering more than their smokes. Whether it’s a dining experience or entertainment, there’s reason to stay at the establishment longer than the duration of a smoke.

Do Your Cigar Homework

Though many local cigar bars welcome a walk-in experience, it is best to know in advance what you are getting yourself into. With regulations, as you can imagine, there are restrictions to blowing smoke in a public space. In addition, Holt’s Clubhouse also has a great list of etiquette to be aware of. This includes how to cut your cigar, how to control your mouth, and a few other common courtesies.
