Among the best places to smoke handmade cigars are the tobacconists. Their smoking lounges will vary widely, but many are very luxurious. Most are open only to customers who have purchased the cigar being smoked from the shop, but there is no other type of fee charged. A lot offer free coffee (usually not gourmet, but at least hot) and have canned and bottled soft drinks available from a self-serve cooler. These are really good places to smoke hand rolled cigars that you want to try before you buy a box, or just to sample something different.
Sports bars differ in their smoking policies, but a large number of them have established cigar rooms. There, patrons can have a drink, a snack, and a smoke while watching the game on television. These cigar rooms may or may not be well-ventilated; some are a bit thick with smoke while others are amazingly clear and fresh. Some also allow cigarette smokers in the same room.
Perhaps the best choice of all the places to smoke cigars is still home. If you live with other people, they may object, but this does not mean that you cannot create a cozy, comfortable smoking area of your own. Porches, patios, balconies, and garages are all possible locations. Spend the time to make it your personal retreat, where you can enjoy a fine smoke in comfort. If you are a music lover, add a portable radio or disc player next to an oversized recliner. Creating your own cigar room can be the most relaxing way of dealing with a stressful problem—finding places to smoke a cigar.
