An Epicurean Enclave on Boylston Street: Boston’s Cigar Masters

Life’s simple pleasures often stop short in the city of Boston. Puritanical values continue to reign in the form of Massachusetts’ egregious Blue Laws, which tend to end the party before it even starts. Those seeking a slice of hedonistic relief – and a finely rolled Romeo y Julieta – will find just that at Cigar Masters.

Owned and operated by the Salomon family since 1996, Cigar Masters is a cut above your average cigar bar, and is one of the few places patrons can legally enjoy cigars in the city. Rich leather, wood and drapery accents abound in its dimly lit Boylston Street location (their sister spots are in Providence and Worcester, respectively), set off by the venue’s crown jewel: a cavernous, on-site humidor, attended to by a staff of cigar aficionados and offering a vast variety of rare cigars for sale.

Those who wish to enhance their Cigar Masters’ experience may elect to enroll in the company’s VIP membership program, which not only allows guests store their personal cigar inventory in private cedar lockers within the humidor, but also keeps guests privy to services such as personal shopping for hard-to-access cigars and supplies, custom labeling for their cigars and boxes, and instant access to the venue’s VIP room and reserved seating.

Sink into the sumptuous sanctity of a leather sofa, please your palette with a pour of a fine port, and enjoy the ambiance: Cigar Masters is the perfect place for the discerning to enjoy a cigar and good conversation alike.

Cigar Masters is located at 745 Boylston Street, Boston, 617.266.4400
