Football season is here and a trip to Las Vegas may be in order for some big Saturday and Sunday handicapping. Or perhaps some time at the craps or blackjack tables is on the itinerary. Some great concert vibes from a huge act like The Who, Usher, or Sting may also be on tap.
Whatever your personal tastes, adding a night with some nice drinks and a finely-crafted stogie only adds to a trip to Sin City. A good smoke with good friends is easily achieved in a city with a 24/7/365 mentality. Here’s a look at some great Vegas Cigar Lounges to light up, imbibe in a cocktail, and enjoy a night (or day) out.
3000 South Las Vegas Boulevard
Take a break from the tables and head to this great lounge located right in the Resorts World casino. Whether puffing one of the 150 premium cigars tucked away in the custom-crafted humidor or sipping a delectable cocktail, a visit won’t disappoint. The action heats up on Sundays during football season. Make a wager at the sportsbook and then check out all the NFL action – hopefully cashing in on a winner and celebrating with a fine cigar.
Along with a wide selection of smokes, Eight features an energetic and cool ambiance. Whether just on a getaway with friends or meeting up with business associates, this lounge offers a chance at some smoking in style. A nice glass of wine, perfectly aged bourbon, or a great mixed drink can only add to the experience. Whether those dice have been going your way or your blackjack session finished up with a tidy profit, it’s always a win when heading to Eight.
3570 South Las Vegas Blvd
Live like a Roman god with a trip to this cigar lounge located in Caesars Palace. The property has set the standard for high-end resorts since debuting on the Vegas Strip in 1966. That level of excellence now extends to this wonderful cigar-smoking experience. The legendary cigar maker offers visitors a 400-square foot climate-controlled humidor with up to 1,000 cigars. The venue also boasts a state-of-the-art ventilation system and a stately decor.
Grab a smoke and then order up a favorite cocktail. There’s also a private dining room for sharing a special experience with friends. Or even better, grab a nice meal at the nearby Nobu and then cap the night with some aromatic tobacco and some excellent conversation. The possibilities are endless and this stop should make for a perfect addition for any Sin City getaway. Even Julius Caesar himself would probably appreciate a few hours at Montecristo. Light up and enjoy!

Your childlike wonder has reawakened since becoming a homeowner in a Caribbean golf course community. Maybe this has something to do with your morning ritual of sipping freshly squeezed fruit juice as you pull back the sliding glass door for the day’s grand unveiling. Your heart leaps a bit as you step out on your deck, and gaze at this morning’s version of the turquoise Caribbean Sea.
The juice, the view, and grabbing your golf clubs are all you need before embracing the signature perk of your new residence. One of the reasons you chose this home, next to this golf course, on this island, is the calm. No rush hour, only friendly “hellos” from fellow island enthusiasts as you hop in your golf cart and motor to the first tee box.
What’s sublime about golf in the Caribbean is there’s a chance you’re playing 18 holes on a course designed by one of the game’s most legendary names. Nicklaus, Norman, and Trent Jones have all staked a claim on this region of pristine beaches, palm trees, conch shell tee markers, pink flamingos, and Paspalum fairways. The question is, “If you love to golf, which island is right for your dream home?

This is a Davidoff delight and situated inside the Fashion Show Mall. After some shopping, relax with some nice adult beverages and a premium cigar. The staff is always eager to help newbies select just the right cigar that fits their own palate. Grab a chair at the bar to check out some sports action.
The outdoor area offers a great place to congregate and chat with friends as you check out the hustle and bustle of the Strip. It’s a tropical atmosphere with palm trees and a brilliant view of the fabulous Wynn across the street. Feeling lucky? This lounge may be located in a mall but some slot machines are still only a short walk away.

Head west of the Strip for this great smoke shop that earns rave reviews among Sin City locals. The name says it all for this upscale smoking paradise. From fine leather chairs to an extensive humidor to live music, this club will have you coming back for more. Owners hoped to make a cigar-smoking “home away from home” and have certainly accomplished that.
Grab a nice Cohiba and your favorite beer, wine, or cocktail. Self-service adds to the social club atmosphere and you’ll feel like you’re among friends. Some nice live music only adds to the fun and thoughts of slot machines and blackjack tables may fade away like that perfect, yet fleeting, smoke ring.
