For our next Where to Smoke blog post, editorial series where we provide you with the ultimate guide on the most luxurious bars, rooms, lounges, and terraces to smoke Cuban Cigars, we travel all the way to the so called Lion City.

From contemporary cigar bars to classic cigar rooms, in today’s post, we take you on a trip to Singapore, visiting the top 4 establishments to enjoy a cigar. In our latest posts we have visited:
ZOUK CAPITAL – An upscale club lounge and one of the most popular nightlife destinations in Singapore, Zouk Capital is home to a hidden whiskey and cigar lounge. The opulent cigar room flaunts over 48 types of whiskey by the glass and bottle, including some very rare and exclusive spirits that are very hard to find. Zouk Capital’s cigar lounge is a peaceful respite from the intense nigh-time crowd and loud music, the perfect place to pair a fine cigar with an excellent single malt whiskey. An iconic smoke since its release back in 1989, the Cohiba Robusto Cigar would be the most suitable habano for this occasion. Part of the brand’s Linea Classica flagship range, Robusto measures at 124 mm length by a ring gauge of 50 and delivers a medium to full bodied smoke, true to the Cohiba Cigars DNA.
THE CONNOISSEUR DIVAN – A unique and retro-infused experience, the Connoisseur Divan was created for all those who want to enjoy a cigar with the enticing sounds of smooth jazz. Cosy and with a classic movement in terms of its decoration, the bar features a walk-in humidor, containing a great selection of Cuban Cigars Online. On top of that, the Connoisseur Divan won’t let you down in your drink choice too. The bar houses a number of premium wines, champagnes, and spirits, ideal to pair with most Cuban sticks. An absolute must-have for any avid cigar aficionado, the Montecristo No. 4 Cigar is the right puro to smoke when visiting the Connoisseur Divan bar. Delivering plenty of complex and rich flavours, this smoke comes in a Marevas vitola, one of the most popular formats amongst all types of cigar smokers and widely considered as a typical habanos shape.

Although the establishment has an impressive selection of whiskeys, Quaich Bar is equipped with a great variety of cigars to choose from and its very own smoking room for aficionados to pursue their true passion. We were excited to see that one of the smokes available was the Partagas Serie D No. 4 Cigar. Capable of delivering a truly complex, strong, and powerful smoke, this cigar is 124 mm long by a ring gauge of 50 and features a Robustos vitola, a very popular size in Habanos S.A.’s portfolio since its short length and thick gauge has proven to be one of the most adored formats to ever come from Partagas Cigars.
