Found this place on the net when I was looking for a place to smoke a cigar and have a drink in Singapore. The place is a little difficult to find but once found you will not regret it. Staff are friendly and the price is slightly on the high side but for me who smokes only overseas its perfect.

I have to say I find the 'terrible' reviews of this place rather odd to say the least. Yes prices are fairly high but it is Singapore and that is the norm for these kind of products. The place is extremely well run, yes the English of some of the staff is not perfect but just a modicum of patience... More

I found this bar quite by accident and have returned many times. Excellent wine selection & tasty food. A calm and friendly atmosphere. You'll meet all kinds of people from locals to tourists. Highlt recommended for a good time.

This is the most expensive cigar bar I have ever been in, and it is in China Town!. My wife and I had a few drinks, a cigar each and a small dinner. Cost over 400 SGD. A shot of makers mark is $25 SGD... one shot! A $17 Cuban cost over $60-$70 here. almost laughable. On the up side,... More

I was surprised by the negative reviews of this place. It is a nice bar with comfortable leather chairs in the heart of bustling Chinatown. Yes, it is expensive, but everything I've done in Singapore has been expensive. Least night I had a draught beer at Clarke Quay and paid $15. My Montecristo number 1 was 75SGD. That is a... More

I've smoked in lounges around the world, and the cigars and whiskey here are by far the most expensive, well more than London or New York. In most places I can bring my own cigar in and smoke that if I buy a drink. Not here. Or, I can buy one of the lower priced cigars and smoke my own,... More

It was a good spot in Chinatown to get my husband's last fix of Cuban cigars.It is in the middle of all the bustle and it is like going to a small private club.The cigars were more expensive than Hong Kong but he bought them any way.We ordered lunch from their restaurant down stairs Chinatown Seafood Restaurant and had it...

I don't know why the last two reviews are so negative, as my husband and I had a wonderful experience here. The girls that were working were very helpful and friendly and the service they gave was fantastic. My husband picked out a nice cigar and as we sat on a leather couch we also had a glass of wine...

What a shame for Singapore. They only have staff from PRC, cannot even speak English. And, on top these girls are so unfriendly and unprofessional. It looks like the owner just wants to rip off his clients. And, so are the prices - skyhigh. No attention is paid to service quality. Avoid this place.

What a disappointment. This 2nd floor establishment is small and seating is very limited although it was empty on the Saturday night that I was there. Waitress staff are mainland Chinese and it shows in both the standard of service and the basic lack of english. Don't bother coming here with your asian wife or gf as she will be... More
