I visit this establishment approximately 3 - 4 times a year. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are so knowledgeable and friendly. It is wonderful to relax with a good cigar and a gin or two. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

Knowledgeable staff, plenty of choice and great interior next to the humidor and the whisky room. It's worth a visit if you're that way inclined. It is pricey, but then they are luxury goods.
