Great stop to cool off!

Enjoyed a few cold beers with a group of eight friends.... Perfect stop. Very very friendly staff. Beer selections are great. Will go back for sure!

Great place to relax and enjoy a cold beer and cigar. Outdoor seating or air conditioned indoor seating. Great selection of cigars and beers on tap in addition to your favorite liqour. I enjoy the outdoors in the afternoons the scenery is fantastic.

Just returned back to the UK from a holiday ('vacation') in Florida and spent the last night in Central Cigars. Having earlier bought a selection of cigars to bring home (brilliantly assisted and advised by Rick who, to our good fortune, was covering a day shift instead of an evening shift!) we returned for a drink and a smoke later...

Good cigars at a reasonable price but I've stopped going there. The staff obviously hate their jobs. When customers aren't at the bar inside, the staff sits outside at the tables on the sidewalk, preventing customers from using those tables. They can be overheard criticizing everybody who walks past them. So unprofessional. They make it clear they just don't care... More

After getting a beer at Ruby's Elixir (the attached bar and music venue where customers can go to and from cigar shop) the salesman told us to get out because we brought a drink in. I told him it was from next door and he said he "knew the cups" and that it wasn't. I bought a cigar (despite his... More

Located on Central Avenue it downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. Good selection of cigars from inexpensive "beginner" cigars to premium cigars for the connoisseur. Nice ambiance with a lot of rich wood décor. The front bar is the length of the room, there is a full bar also in back that has entertainment and opens to tables on the street. Cigar... More

Enjoyed our visit here after dinner. Great selection of cigars and drinks. A little smoky, but considering, not too bad. Excellent selection of bourbons and scotch. If you want to have a cigar and a drink, this is the perfect stop.

I've fond memories of this place as it was a locale I'd often frequent with my brother. It started as a small nook. Thanks to growing popularity and a friendly staff, it slowly expanded, taking over spaces beside, and diagonally behind. The layout felt like someone had taken a house without walls and decided to create a bunch of cozy... More

My husband is a big cigar smoker. He thought the selection was pretty good...not great. He bought several cigars. We decide to sit down for a drink and he would have a cigar. I had to go outside. The amount of smoke inside the shop is nauseating. I'm a smoker so I'm not just being a wuss. I started to... More
