The rich waft of leather and cigar smoke hits you as you enter this glazed emporium of whisky and Cuban tobacco on UE Square, just a couple of doors down from Coffee Bar K.
Owner The Pacific Cigar Company is the sole formal distributor of Cuban cigars in the Asia Pacific and has its fingers in a few whiskies, too. Around a hundred bottles, almost all single malt Scotch, nestle behind the granite and dark wood bar and in the members' lockers.
Novelties include the Auchentoshan 50 and a 28-year-old Caol Ila, along with a range of Glenfarclas whiskies. A glazed, air-conditioned attachment provides a library of the three hundred or so Cuban cigars available both to guests and retail purchasers.
Live bands provide jazz on Mondays and Tuesdays and pop and soft rock standards Wednesday to Saturday - they take requests. Sofas outside and a smoking room inside make this a popular place for business meetings during the day and socializing after it, and draw an older crowd.
