London boasts some of the most magnificent landmarks in the UK. It is home to the National History Museum, the Royal Albert Hall, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London, but it also plays host to a number of cigar bars where you’re able to shop and smoke. Here we’ve compiled a list of some of the very best in the London.

Boisdale of Canary Wharf
Bar, Restaurant, Cocktail Bar, British, $$$$
Right in the centre of Canary Wharf sits an awning-covered heated terrace complete with tartan upholstered armchairs and sofas, all supplied with tartan blankets that are all part of the traditional Scottish theme of Boisdale. The cigar terrace seats up to 42 guests whilst the members-only area on the opposite terrace can accommodate 22. It’s the perfect place to grab a whiskey, light up your cigar and while away the day’s stress after a tough one at work.
In the heart of Mayfair, the stunning terrace of The Mayfair Hotel is perfect for al fresco gatherings with an exquisite lounge bar and terrace menu offering a taste of the Mediterranean, including Spanish and Italian bar bites and Mexican and Peruvian highlights from its sister kitchens within the hotel. It also offers a range of hand-rolled cigars and a large selection of whiskey and brandy to accompany.
The Churchill Bar and Terrace
Inspired by Sir Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine, The Churchill Bar & Terrace within the Hyatt Regency Hotel offers cocktails and dining in a glamorous setting tucked away behind Oxford Street. If you take a step out onto the terrace you can also purchase a selection of cigars, supplied by the UK’s leading Cuban cigar importer Hunters & Frankau, that you’re able to smoke there and then. As winners of the Cigar Terrace of the Year 2017, this is one not to miss.
Bar, British, $$$$
The super-quirky stone vaults once lived as prisons and secret treasure storage spaces for the bank above have now been transformed into private booths at the Voltaire Cocktail Bar. The champagne bar channels luxurious yet illicit vibes of the venue’s eclectic history with its menu that offers quite the extensive range of vintage champagnes and cigars. If you head on through the draped silk curtains, you can enjoy your cigar in a chandelier and greenery-laden garden.
