The Cohiba Atmosphere Cigar Club is above the lively La Bodeguita Del Medio restaurant and bar in the centre of Prague. Unlike the downstairs, it’s an oasis of calm refinement in which you can enjoy a cigar.
To reach the cigar club, walk through the entrance to La Bodeguita and proceed up the stairs that are to your left. You’ll first reach the cigar shop and then the corridor leads to the bar. The bar is impressive.
I sat in the corner and had the following view:
The waitress was professional and friendly and asked if I wanted to purchase a cigar. I’d brought my own Cohiba Robusto and cigar cutter. I didn’t have any matches as I assumed there would be some cedar sticks on the table. I asked if there were any and she offered me one of the interior parts of a Cohiba box – made of cedar, it was a good solution, although I’m surprised they don’t have sticks and small water glasses in which to extinguish them.
A Bombay Sapphire gin and tonic was 179 Kč. I wasn’t charged anything for bringing my own cigar – but then it was mid-afternoon.
It was a good experience and the bar seemed well ventilated – I’d certainly visit again. My favourite cigar bar remains Bar and Books Tynska, but the Cohiba Atmosphere Cigar Club is a close second, especially as it also benefits from being open during the daytime.
