In a beautiful city of Poznan, Poland I found an cigar shop with most enjoyable smoking lounge. They told about busy friday and saturday evenings with ten or more aficionados enjoying cigars, as business traveler I haven’t seen more than 6 persons here (sun-wed evenings)
Szewska 19, 61-754 Poznań – Google Maps
at the corner of Szewska and Dominikańska
Open: Mon-Thu 11:00-23:00, Fri-Sat 11:00-24:00, Sun 13:00-23:00
Located very close to the Stary Rynek, the old town square. If you are arriving from further locations I would recommend grabbing an uber ride to the destination. Solves the language barrier and you’ll know the price 🙂
Shop is equipped with quite wide selection of cigars from all origins you might desire. Wide selection of Cubans of course available. Pricing is reasonable, though their shop prices are slightly higher than ones listed at their online shop linked at their web site http://caballero.pl/ but that could be expected. Range goes from Reposado Colorado State Blend Robusto (16zl ~3.8€) to Cohiba Edition Limitada 2017 (275zl ~64.2€)
As they describe their business as Cigar & Whisky Bar they do live up to decent expectations and they do provide nice selection of whiskies and rums to go with cigar of your choice. By nice selection I am not referring to hundreds of ultra rare and expensive specials, but nice wide range of distilleries and ages.
After careful consideration to pick a nice cigar and suitable avec it is time to enter the lounge. If you are planning to sit down with few friends, the layout is somewhat ideal as there are 5 groups of seats and tables which have 4 to 8 seats each. Quite often there is lounge music playing on background.
Then it is time to sit down and enjoy my chosen few 🙂
