This is a discussion on Cigar Lounge/Bar? within the Kentucky forums, part of the Members and Places to Smoke by Area category; Anyone know of a decent place to go and have a cigar in the NKY area? There really aren't any ...
Sorry for being so late to the party--haven't been to Puff in well over a year. (By now the OP should be about ready to spend time OUTdoors witha stogie.)
Anyhow in addition to the places listed in that linked site above, most bars in the Main Strasse area of Covington are cigar friendly. Next to Cosmo's is a quasi-cigar bar called Fitzgerald's. Sticks are spendy there, I recommend bringing your own and just overpaying for drinks during a visit.
But Village Pub, Strause Haus, Up and Over, Dub's, and Mulligan's are okay with cigars as well.
But stogie central in northern Kentucky is Beer Sellar in Newport. (It's at the other end of the barge from Hooters.) On any given evening there's at least one or two cigar enthusianados present, sometimes lots more.
