Hello Everyone,

We are lucky to have so many good places in Hong Kong to smoke cigars and enjoy the company of fellow cigar aficionados.

This is an effort to gather the most updated information on spots for those in Hong Kong now and those coming to visit after Covid. If you are looking for a place that sells sticks and want to sit down and enjoy a cigar, or if you want bring your own cigar (BYOC) to smoke somewhere, keep on reading.

General information about Hong Kong for those who have not been here yet: It is second to none in terms of places where to smoke – there are literally options everywhere. The selection of cigars is world class but demand and ability to pay drive up prices, making cigar prices some of the highest in the world. During Covid, most lounges have been a safe haven for aficionados and fully open, subject to regulations.

This guide is mainly supposed to give you a feel and provide updated information of what is available should you be looking for a good place to smoke now – indoor, outdoor, day or night and by location.

The list below will mainly guide you to where you can go and just buy a stick to enjoy for a few hours without forking out for a box or pay up to USD 10K for a locker. You can find private / members only / public places and those where you need to buy a box to sit down and smoke. To help to get an idea for in particular the lounges, they are categorized by both price $$$-$ and feel ***-* which is highly subjective but serves as a general reference point.

For some places you can put on your best suit (***), others are more relaxed (**) and some you can visit with shorts and different shoes on (*). But do not worry, this guide will help to introduce options for every taste and wallet.

Disclaimer: all the places on the list below have been visited many times by yours truly and other fellow cigar buddies, any recommendations are therefore always based on our personal experiences and feel for the spots. It may sound odd, but not all of the places can be found on Google or Maps so if you are particularly interested in any of these, send a pm or post below for more details and wherever possible everyone will help with more detailed info. For example, if you are looking for a lounge that has both cigars and offers drinks, we are happy to guide you.

The Pawn is one  of my favorite places to smoke, just watching the trams go by reminiscing the good ol days of Hong Kong.

Another good place i recommend is 

RUAM thai resturant in Wanchai, very cigar friendly and nice terrace with a lot of greens.

As a fellow cigar aficionado in Hong Kong, i will continue to add to this list as they come to my mind.

 

 

thanks for making this list!

Trafalgar at Brim 28 in Wanchai closed, but there are several places there that are cigar friendly and all casual - Frites, Devino patio, HopHouse etc.

Good to see Ruam on the list

Happened to me many times in happy valley .. getting told off for smoking in the smoking area 🤷‍♂️ the HV feather and bone eventually told me they no longer allow cigars. Some customers like to behave like they own the place.

Coffee academics in HV is quite good last time I went. There's also a new place called coffeelin which allows you to pull a chair across the street for a smoke. 

Nearby in cwb cafe corridor has a little back area that allows smoking, and I sometimes bring my dog to heyday coffee in taihang or coast at tinhau temple road
