Casa del Tabaco

The old cigar shop is a good starting point for cigar lovers and tourists strolling around the old part of the city. The main aorta of Habana Vieja, the Calle Obispo, is very close and leads to this small gem of a shop. The shop itself is relatively small and the range is limited compared to other Casas, but the well
informed staff are very helpful and the prices are generally lower here than other shops. The tobacco museum is one level up and exhibits art on the history of tobacco and cigar culture.

The best range and the most frequented shop in Vedado, you'll find it to the right of the entrance to the Hotel Habana Libre and it is cost-wise a better deal than other shops. The atmosphere is more reserved than the beautiful old shops in the cigar factories, but the friendliness of the staff is well on par and if you are looking for a shop in Vedado, this one has a large and good assortment.
