The chill - Because of the lounge you could sit back, cool off with a cold drink and a relaxing smoke in huge leather chairs. 4. The people - I joined... More

Great cigar selection with a comfy lounge at the back. There was also a great selection of craft beers from the states to choose from. Don't be fooled by the other cigar store down the street, Cigar House is the real deal!

Right in Old San Juan not hard to find. Had a big selection of cigars and even had my favorite one. They cut it for me and sparked it up and let me smoke it on their beautiful lounge ! Also got a good selection of beers and other drinks to go with the cigars!

We were walking around Old San Juan and stopped here so my husband could buy some cigars. The woman who helped my husband pick out the 7 cigars he bought was very friendly and helpful. They have a huge selection at reasonable prices.

First of all Google maps walking is amazing. Second this place is legit. I am not a smoker at all or a cigar aficionado, but I have a friend who is and I told them I would go here and bring them a little something back. The smell of cigars is definitely strong, and they have an amazing selection even... More

This is bar none the best stop in PR for the cigar aficionado. Incredible selection in the best walk in humidor in the Caribbean. The bar and smoking lounge place this location above all others. Smokers accessories galore. Well appointed store that is well attended by the family that owns and runs it. You will know you are close by... More

My husband and I visit the Cigar House daily each year we visit San Juan. A spacious, well ventilated smoking lounge with full bar, comfy recliners, and a well-stocked and maintained humidor. It's a family run business, which we admire as well. Cheers to many more years on La Fortaleza, Cigar House!

I work in a cigar shop in Tennessee, so whenever I travel I have to check out the local stores. This shop was as good as any shop I've visited. The selection is phenomenal, the rare and aged choices are on par with anything I've seen in Miami. I wish that I had gotten the opportunity to make use of... More

We’ve lived in NW Puerto Rico for 8 years. I hate to pay outrageous prices to anyone, but unfortunately, the cigar and liquor selections at the Cigar House are the best we’ve found on the island. That said... We make the drive to San Juan 2-3 times a year to play tourist for a couple nights. I’m not an aficionado,... More
