1 Mahogany on Walnut
Philadelphia's long-standing cigar bar has perhaps the perfect address: right above Holt's, one of the city's favorite cigar shops. Head up the plaid-papered stairs and into an old school smoking lounge that just calls for a smoking jacket and a sniffer of brandy. Tufted seating, a classic and fully stocked wooden bar and even a small food menu make these a great post-dinner or theater spot.

2 Ashes Cigars
Manayunk's main drag just welcomed this newcomer, a modern take on the cigar lounge. Sleek hardwoods, black leather sofas and a flat screen make this BYOB spot accommodating to the younger set, while a rotation of live piano acts give it a touch of nostalgia for the experienced. A massive humidor is the rooms main highlight, and private lockers are in the works for faithful patrons.
3 BNB Cigars
This classic Chestnut Hill shop offers a great selection and wonderful service, but regulars like it for the perks. Rolling demonstrations, wine pairings, cigar dinners and a quaint terrace perfect for enjoying the first out of the box are what keep customers coming back.

4 G&G Cigars
This massive West Chester shop -- 30,000 selections to choose from -- is south suburbia's best bet for cigars. Cigar education classes and events make this a great place to visit, but it's the member's only club, The Cigarden, that makes it special. Leather club chairs, a flat-screen television, wireless internet and private storage locker make this back room a best bet.

5 Twisted Leaf Cigar Shop
This trendy little spot in Phoenixville is a quality shop and entertainment venue in one. Sure, you can go classic and watch some sports or read the paper on one of their cushy leather sofas, or you can head outside to the veranda for people watching. Or you can head to the back room for cards or darts. Cigar dinners and other events keep the good times coming.
