The Cohiba Experience at Bacara is the first of its kind cigar lounge created in partnership between powerhouse luxury brands Ritz-Carlton and Cohiba. Located at the five-star Ritz-Carlton Bacara Hotel in Santa Barbara, California, the venue is an elegant al fresco terrace that calls upon hand-painted murals, a stunning, cedar-lined humidor, fire pit tables and stylish seating to provide a glimpse into the sultry culture of handmade cigars.
From the vantage point of the terrace, panoramic views abound encompassing the resort’s manicured grounds and spa pool with breathtaking vistas of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains.
Given its Santa Barbara location, the Cohiba Experience at Bacara exudes a laid-back vibe that is at once warm and welcoming.
The posh lounge features an aficionado’s array of handmade cigars led by Cohiba including the brand’s coveted “red dot,” Spectre, Riviera, Royale, Blue, Connecticut, and Weller by Cohiba expressions. Partagas Legend, Macanudo Vintage, La Gloria Cubana Serie R and Room101 14th Anniversary are among the other respected offerings on the cigar menu. Available for pairing with the cigars is a curated selection of fine wine, spirits, specialty cocktails and Central Coast cuisine. For craft cocktail enthusiasts, inventive offerings are prepared tableside by world-class mixologists.
Private humidor lockers will be available for lease beginning this winter.
The Cohiba Experience at Bacara cigar lounge is open to the public of legal age Wednesday through Sunday starting at 6 PM. Admission is complimentary.
