What’s the best cigar bar in Las Vegas?
Las Vegas is a wild place, and it’s one of my favorite destinations, mainly for the warm weather, the bright lights, excellent drinks, amazing food, a bit of gambling, and a few great paces to smoke cigars. The two best cigar bars in Vegas are Casa Fuente inside the Forum Shops at Caesars and Rhumbar at the Mirage Hotel and Casino.
Today we will be reviewing Casa Fuente.
Casa Fuente is a small cigar bar located inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, therefore it’s a cigar bar that is literally sitting inside your typical shopping mall which is a brilliant idea if you think about it. Your wife can head off into the depths of the mall trying on every shoe that the mall has to offer while you sit and relax smoking a marvelous hand rolled cigar. Can you say win, win? Casa Fuente is an authorized Arturo Fuente brand outlet store therefore you will only be able to purchase Fuente related cigars (no Padrons here my friend). They have a small walk-in humidor filled with the best Fuente has to offer, in fact you can get Fuente cigars at Casa Fuente that you cannot get anywhere else which makes it really cool and interesting. Looking for a rare Forbidden X cigar? Casa Fuente will have it.
The humidor is extremely well stocked, and well maintained. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and very willing to help. One draw back is their prices are a bit high, for instance a Arturo Fuente Anejo #77 “Shark” will set you back $27, yet that same cigar is typically around $17 if you can find it at a normal cigar retailer. However, I give Casa Fuente a bit of a pass on their prices because they are never out of stock on the hard to find cigars so I guess I expect to pay a bit more for the ability to get what I want.
Casa Fuente also features a smoking lounge that spills out into the mall and it has a very cool and relaxed ambience which gives you the feeling that you stumbled into a neat little bar somewhere in the back streets of Cuba. Casa Fuente makes a very good mojito but I love the french press coffee even more. I can sit there for hours sipping at my drink, smoking my favorite cigar, and listening to the subtle Cuban/Central American style music in the background, it’s like heaven on earth.
You can also buy Fuente related shirts, hats, lighters, and other accessories which make great gifts for cigar lovers that didn’t get to come with you on the trip to Vegas.
Which is better, Casa Fuente or Rhumbar?
If I was forced to choose between Casa Fuente and Rhumbar I guess I would prefer the more relaxed atmosphere of Casa Fuente to the loud music and “night-club” vibe of Rhumbar. That being said, Rhumbar makes a better Mojito and if you are looking to party, Rhumbar is much more vibrant in that regard. In conclusion, both Casa Fuente and Rhumbar are miles ahead of just about any other cigar bar you can find therefore it’s difficult to rate one higher than the other because they are BOTH the best cigar bars in Las Vegas.
