|WELCOME TO THE LAND OF HABANOS|
On the following pages you'll find personal recommendations we want to pass on. Perhaps you want to
experience something 'new' yourself during your time in Cuba.
We've put together a list of the cigar shops in the capital, including all that belong to the genuine 'Casa del Habano'. While the manager of the Casa del Habano places special emphasis on quality, this still means the produce from the other shops is also usually faultless.
An 'aficionado' examines the cigars before purchasing and if there are any faults they need to be pointed out
there and then. The Casa's don't all keep the same stock, so there is always a little surprise in store during your visit!
|The depicted logo you see was created for the second festival del Habano, a festival that drew in many visiting specialists and aficionados from all over the world.|

Fábrica de Partagas
Calle Industria 520, Habana Vieja, situated behind the Capitolio - good choice and advice, smoker's lounge, aficionados meet here from all around the world.
La Casa del Habano Conde de Villanueva
Calle de Mercaderes No. 220 corner Lamparilla, Habana Vieja, located close to the harbor. This gem of a shop on the first level inside the Hotel courtyard boasts a great choice of cigars and expert personnel. Hotel guests can rent a box for their cigars. Cigars are enjoyed in either the smoker's lounge or the hotel's beautiful courtyard.
La Casa del Habano Miramar
5ta. Avenida Ecke 16, located in the direction of Marina Hemingway in the beautiful district of Miramar -
good club atmosphere and lots of regulars, here you'll find a great assortment of cigars and excellent advice.
La Casa del Habano Varadero
Opposite the Hotel Cuatro Palmas, in Varadero the best starting post: beautiful shop, wide range of tobacco and top advice. But on the down side: Varadero is a very expensive area so don't make this Casa your only stop. When buying large quantities we recommend a trip to Havana.
de San Carlos de la Cabaña
The fortress on the other side of the bay from Havana is a tourist attraction. The cigar shop lies within the oldest walls of the city - here you go more for atmosphere than for stock and advice.
Bar Havana Club
In the old harbor part of the city there is a bar, museum and rum and cigar shop. A beautiful place, that is actually more inviting for the wide range of rum than cigars.
Calle San Pedro No. 262 corner Sol
In the district Jaimanitas, somewhat out of the way and is more advisable for those who also want to visit the yacht marina. A small shop with friendly service.
El Patio Colonial
Calle Obispo Ecke Baratillo, Habana Vieja - minimal selection, there are more interesting cigar shops in the area.
