Cohiba tells that they have opened Cohiba Experience at The Bacara, the first-of-its-kind cigar lounge in the US.

The Cohiba Experience at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara is a world-class al fresco cigar lounge, offering complimentary admission to guests and the public aged 21 and over. Reservations are strongly encouraged.

About the Cohiba Lounge

Overlooking the resort’s sprawling grounds and offering breathtaking ocean views, The Cohiba Experience is outfitted with hand-painted murals, comfortable seating, firepits, and a walk-in,
cedar-lined humidor, set against the backdrop of the hotel’s Spanish Mission architecture.

An array of masterfully-crafted cigars from Cohiba and other respected brands come together with curated cocktails and a connoisseur’s assortment of fine wine and spirits, to create the ultimate
coastal cigar lounge.
