A few ideas for a cigar bar for your special events

Terry Pomerantz is a real master when it comes to organizing a cigar bar for a party or a special event. “Whether it is to celebrate a birthday, a golf tournament or a wedding reception, I like for my guests to have access to a cigar bar; especially since there are always a few cigars amateurs among them.”

Simple ideas

The cigar bar ideas that Terry suggests are simple. “Organizing a temporary cigar bar during a special event is like cooking: you must enjoy what you’re doing or else there’s a good chance you’ll ruin it!”

Respect the non-smokers

“A cigar bar is always fun… for those who like to smoke cigars! But let’s remember that most of our friends are non-smokers. It is important that your cigar bar not be bothersome to them!” recommends Terry Pomerantz.

What you need to organize a temporary cigar bar:

Ideally, you will need:

  • A large enough outdoor area (like a private garden, or the land around a country house, a country inn or a golf club)
  • A shelter, like a tent (installed further away from the place where guests gather)
  • A few bistro style table and chairs
  • A service table on which to display the cigars, whiskey and scotch.

Terry Pomerantz recommends that your cigar selection include a few quality cigars like Royal Monterrey. “Ashton cigars are always very popular. Often women like to smoke small Davidoff cigars. Do not hesitate to ask your tobacco dealer for advice, to help you better organize your cigar bar.”

A few occasions for a temporary cigar bar

A cigar bar always adds a luxurious touch to any event. For example, organising a cigar bar for a wedding reception is a real tradition. Guests particularly enjoy it during the second part of the evening. The cigar bar is often the less formal side of a wedding reception. Do you have a friend who is a cigar amateur and you wish to make his/her birthday special? Then a cigar bar is a must! The cigar menu presented will obviously include a few of that friend’s favorite brand of cigars. 

Amongst other occasions to organize a cigar bar for a celebration, there is also for an employee’s years of service, team building activities, your company’s anniversary or a fundraising event for a cause that is very important to you. Enjoying a cigar while sipping a whiskey always leads to sharing. A cigar bar creates a quiet corner that is conducive to conversation.
