On my last visit to old San Juan we stopped in and had a few drinks at the bar and the selection of cigars are great!! Prices are a little steep but well worth it!

One of the best and biggest cigar selections that I have seen. With the notable exceptions of Cubans of course. Excellent advice on cigars and good conversation on rum from Angel. Here it is also possible to try a number of the best high-end rums by the glass and there is no end to the cigar (paraphenila) that you can... More

Never go there! The sales associates are nice but the owner terrible. After spending $900 on different boxes, one turned up to be unsmokeable. They said no return after cigars leave the store. Don't spent your money on boxes or expensive cigars there for you won't get refund or exchange. Too bad the bad experience came from the owner. I... More

I despise everything about cigars except the smell of a cigar shop. If you must smoke a cigar, you should go here to buy it. It's not fancy but it's authentic. They have everything including (a very well ventilated) old smoking area. It's cool for smokers like my husband and more tolerable than most for me.

I came in and it took a while to get attention of a staff member to let me in the humidor, but I got in and selected 2 cigars. Paid a fair price and went to the back to get a drink. Bartender tried to add a 2 dollar tax to my 8 dollar bourbon. He relented when I said... More

This place was recommended by a friend. Large walk in humidor with more cigars than you'll ever have time to look at. I selected a nice maduro robusto. I purchased the cigar and then sat on the comfy couch and had a bourbon with my cigar. They have a premium liquor selection both at the bar and to purchase (very... More

We visited here twice in our 3-day visit to San Juan. I'm a complete novice when it comes to cigars. I like to smoke one every now and again. Carlos was really helpful and recommended the perfect cigars for both myself and my more experienced friend. Cigar House also has an amazing selection of beer. A better selection than most... More

While walking around the Old San Juan area, I had stopped into The Cigar House. Compared to the other cigar shops in the area, this was the best. As you walk in, there were lots of humidors; a couple I wanted to buy. Then there were all the cutters and lighters. Once you get past all the great humidors, cutters... More

The people were very knowlegeable about cigars and took a lot of time to run us through their stock to find our perfect cigar. I didn't feel dumb for not really knowing much about cigars when we were looking around. Tip: don’t buy a mild cigar, it had absolutely no taste, I wish I would have known.
