Cigar Paradise: St. Pete Cigar & Craft Cocktail Bar

Rooftop Collective visits Cigar Paradise Downtown

Guys – I really feel like I am about to bring a little awareness to a local GEM that has been flying under the radar for far too long. This post is dedicated to Cigar Paradise Royal lounge – a cigar lounge and craft cocktail bar that opened a while back on Beach Drive.

Let me paint a picture for you… you’re out to dinner with friends on Beach Drive, the food and drinks have been wonderful, the conversation – dare I say, enjoyable and though the check has come, you’re not quite ready to call it a night. Enter: Cigar Paradise. This striking bar and lounge is quietly located by Annex and 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House. Pouring up craft cocktails and offering a diverse selection of fine cigars, Cigar Paradise offers an elevated atmosphere – perfect for that after-dinner nightcap.

When Kristina and I visited for this set, we enjoyed a smoked old fashion and I used my limited (read: non-existent) knowledge of cigars to select one that was cut and lit by a pro. Cigar Paradise is open 7 days a week from 11 AM to Midnight and offers live cigar rolling Saturday through Wednesday from 1 PM to 8 PM.

Since they are open during the day, their spacious spread offers a great place to work as well – plus you will always be the first one to happy hour. 😉

When you visit, I recommend ordering their smoked old-fashioned from the bar – their presentation is quite impressive.
