The area
Address
Neighborhood: Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.

The shop/lounge is located near the city center of Amsterdam (several tram stations are nearby) and specialises in premium Nicaraguan cigars. They have a big and well-stocked selection of great cigars. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly - their recommendations for me were on point. If you want to smoke your cigar in the lounge, they charge 5 Euro per hour, but drinks are included, and the lounge has a very relaxing atmosphere.

We went there yesterday, we were a group of 6 with no much knowledge concerning cigars and this experience was really nice. We were really well advised and the people were so nice. It is really nice place to smoke and discover cigars with friends. Definitely nice, something we will remember. Thank you much ! :-)

Brilliant store. Best and most friendly in the Netherlands also the staff are extremely welcoming. Their advice is first class and their selection of cigars is second to noneand its only a short walk from the Rijks Museum.

Spending a few days in Amsterdam with my adult daughter at the end of a vacation and needed a nice cigar and a quiet place to smoke it. Cigaragua was suggested by a knowledgeable local and reinforced by some reviews I found online.

The place is on a main street and easy to find. It is spread out on three levels, with the retail space at ground level, the humidor up one and the lounge down one. The space was clean and inviting, with the lounge being large and well presented.

The humidor was extensive, but with a specialization in Nicaraguan-grown smokes. The prices were very fair, especially considering the shop is in a very touristy area of Amsterdam.

The employee manning the place was friendly and greeted me as soon as I walked in. He worked with me in the humidor to select a number of cigars that were right for my palate, but not familiar to me.

While sitting in the lounge smoking one of my cigars, I enjoyed a glass of wine and a glass of port. It appears they serve a very basic selection of wine, beer, coffee and non-alcoholic drinks.

If you are ever in Amsterdam and in need of a cigar and a place to smoke it, you can do no better than Cigaragua. Highly recommend.

Wow! Where do I begin? Decided to visit Cigaragua in Amsterdam purely based on ALL the raving reviews on how good this place is. Had to go experience it myself.
The minute I walked in, I was greeted by a friendly welcoming face, Onno. This man knows his products (Cigars) inside out. We had a grand tour of their huge walk-in humidor and he personally talked me through each of my sections. (yes i did purchase alot!)
We then got an invite to their lounge (located below the walk-in humidor). My Padron was cut and lit to my preference and paired with a beautiful 12 year Flo De Cana.
Several hours later, regrettably the wife & I had to leave as it was past their closing time.
If you are looking for a informative, relaxed, reputably cigar shop with great staff (cannot commend Onno enough) with stunning décor and ambience to match… Cigaragua is your place of choice. Its not just a cigar shop...its an experience!
Thank you Onno & Cigaragua!
Hopefully see you later the year for the annual Big Smoke

Very good selection in the humidor and knowledgeable and friendly staff. Drinks available in the lounge. Lounge is comfortable although, ventilation was a bit of an issue during our visit when it got full. Highly recommend.
