Joe,
I stopped by Hellams tobacco shop. However, I didn't pick anything up. They were REALLY helpful and I can say that if I go back that I will buy something next time. However, I had a travel humidor full and picked one from my own stash.

Secondly, I went to the Crown & Anchor (The Crown and Anchor - Homepage). Really neat pub with British food and many good European beers. I had a really good super and followed it with a great cigar. They have a patio with heaters and a roll down canvas roof it it rains.

I think that anybody looking for good food, drinks and a place to have a cigar will not be dissapointed.

Glad you found some good places to smoke! I may have to try Cannery Row Brewing Co. when I'm there in November. Did you go to a B&M to get your sticks or did you bring your own?

Re: Cigar Friendly Lounge in Monterey california

Was looking at places close to the Portola Plaza Hotel in Monterey. I found the Crown and Anchor Pub. Their web site (The Crown and Anchor - The Patio) mentions "Take in the local sights while sipping on a well deserved beverage or smoking a fine cigar with your after dinner drink." Anybody had a cigar on their patio????

Thanks,
Russ

No problem! It's been a while since I've lived there, so my apologies for not being able to be TOO specific. Portola Hotel is in "down town" Monterey. It's close to Cannery Row, and you certainly COULD walk to it. Not sure of the distance, but I'd guess it's about a mile and a half to two miles to the aquarium from your hotel, which is at the end of Cannery Row. I think The Humidor is closer to that end, too, although not on Cannery Row itself. Much closer to get to Cannery Row than Asilomar, which is probably just a few miles away but up and over some sizeable hills... you wouldn't want to walk even if you weren't intimidated by the distance!

These 'directions' may sound confusing but Monterey is very small, and there are only a handful of roads that would go down to Cannery Row as it is - very easy to figure out from where you'll be!

No clue. I can't imagine they have a lounge, either, and I doubt they're to fond of outdoor smoking either, given the state's stand on the issue. If you're just looking for a quiet place to sneak away with a good smoke, there are tons of little coves along Cannery Row and the various beaches, or a walk along Asilomar beach.

Hellmans still exists and as jswaykos said, I don't believe they have a lounge.
