Swish Cigar Bar

March 09, 2015
Cohiba Atmosphere
Raising a special toast to Tokyo, or celebrating the sign-off of that all-important business break? Sometimes the standard watering hole just won’t cut it, and for such special occasions, deal-closers and debonair sorts can safely turn to Cohiba Atmosphere. The much-loved Minato bar-cum-lounge has been a staple of the suave set for several years now thanks to its refined looks, smart service, top-shelf selection of whiskies, and prime puff Cuban cigars.

Channelling Havana circa 1930 – when it was known as the The Paris of the Caribbean – this bijou bar oozes a certain je ne sais quoi, with its rouge walls, dark woods and gilded sconces. Cosy into one of the curtain-strung, chaise-longue nooks, or else pull up a perch at the bar where the English-speaking staff can guide you through the long list of international liquors and cigars, some pre-paired for a complementary sip n’ smoke experience. For those that aren’t about the peat or puro there are European wines, some bubbly, and a tight edit of tropical cocktails, including an indulgent piña colada. All of this, plus weekly live jazz acts and you could almost be back in Habana Vieja. ¡Salud!
