Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris Introduces a Private Cigar Lounge

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Paris, France – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

With cigar smoking and humidors right back in vogue, it’s no surprise that the ever-chic Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris is opening a private cigar lounge this autumn: Le Club Viñales.

Deeply comfortable, with bespoke leather club armchairs, art books and international magazines, this jewel-like retreat is dedicated to the delights of the Havana and the Montecristo. A sanctuary for the happy few, where they can while away the hours with like-minded aficionados. A place where serious issues of the day are discussed, the world is put to rights and smoke-wreathed moments of calm are savored. For sunny days, there is a members-only private terrace, accessible directly from Le Club Viñales.

Membership will be strictly restricted. When they join, each member will be given a key for their own private humidor where their cigar collection will be stored and preserved. Over the first few months of their membership, members will be given exclusive gifts: accessories from the iconic French company ST Dupont, famed for its lighters and leather goods, as well fine cognac and whiskies.

Other advantages include an exclusive concièrge service, made-to-order cocktails behind closed doors and invitations, with a guest, to private tastings, conducted by such great names as Dom Perignon, Hennessy, Louis XIII and Glenfiddich. Members will also be entitled to additional benefits when using the hotel’s restaurants and guestrooms.
