Montecristo Cigar Bar, Las Vegas

Pair spirits with cigars at this modern drinking lounge

You’d think that at 50 years old, Caesars Palace would be starting to slow down. But luckily for us it seems to be in a renaissance, having just opened the Montecristo Cigar Bar, a modern drinking lounge with an adjacent 400-square-foot humidor and cigar shop.

The lounge is made up of four rooms in addition to the climate-controlled humidor: The library, which has wood paneling, leather couches and Playboy: The Book of Cigars for you to flip through; the outdoorsy courtyard, which features a skylight and lots of greenery; the signature bar, which has tabletop gaming; and the vault room, a private, 10-seat table for intimate gatherings.

Choose to smoke any of the 1,000 cigars for sale on-site and pair them with cocktails or spirits from Montecristo’s high-roller list. You can sip a variety of Pappy Van Winkle vintages, pop a bottle of Dom Pérignon or splurge on some Louis XIII cognac, poured tableside for you into a crystal glass. Then there’s the oh-so-Vegas food menu, which includes fries cooked in duck fat, bourbon ketchup and a dry-aged burger slathered with foie gras butter. See, not everything going on in Vegas has to remain a secret anymore. Although you still may not want to show anyone your credit card statement… –Alyson Sheppard
