Excellent. Stumbled on this walking back from a flamenco evening at Barachin just down the street. The Cigar House had a show on (usually sponsored by one cigar maker or other) so we were drawn in by the live music. It was lovely. It's clearly run by a family that loves cigars. I have an occasional cigar (i.e. now maybe... More

Great spot to take a break from family vacation. On par with quality of JR's in Whippany NJ, smaller scale operation though. Just leave your backpack at the register, it will be ok. They unlock the humidor room and let you browse. Good selection of interesting labels. Plenty of seating in lounge, even a pair of Torano labeled rocking chairs.... More

First, don't expect any Cubanos here - you're still officially in the USA. But it's a great cigar shop with a wide selection in a terrific walk-in humidor. There's a very nice bar/cafe where you can enjoy a cigar. The selection of cigars really is impressive. Usually, I have a hard time finding a couple of Fuentes Opus-X - here... More

The Cigar House is the finest cigar bar in Old San Juan. The humidor is replete with a fine collection of cigars for all tastes and budgets. The ambience is quite comfortable with traditional rocking chairs and deeply plushed leather sofas. I specially enjoy the very high ceiling with a Skydome allowing me to enjoy direct sunlight and a few... More

Great place for a whiskey and a good cigar! Cigar selection was very good. I found several cigars that are unavailable back in Indiana. The selection of scotch was not as far ranging but had several quality brands. Also had some tasty and interesting beers. The staff was awesome. A little stand offish at first but once you stopped acting... More

Enough can't be said about good customer service...it counts! While the Cigar House has an impressive selection of cigars, the gentleman at the counter had zero personality and was rather short with us.

Big place with nice atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff and friendly. I had a smoke and a few beers in the back while watching World Cup. Met and chatted up with some locals and tourist. Will come back.

Great selection of cigars and rums. They have great prices on lighters. My husband bought a nice one for $30. We have paid $75-$100 for the same brand, similar lighter. The staff was not friendly or engaging at all!
