It's been years since I went to Vegas...loved going there until the Casinos targeted cigars and you could see the changes of no lounges to smoke in. The Keno lounges used to be really nice...leather chairs, sofas, scantily clad servers running back and forth making me dizzy...bringing me well drinks every half hour...was I in Heaven...yes, for at least 6 hours a day for a midweek trip of 4 days and 3 nights and so many cigars that I should have been condemned by the Health Dept.

Are there any nice Casino Lounges/Keno still alive or are those just my private memories of the past?

BUMP.....I thought so. Every cigar smoker has basically caved to the same ole BS of ...."can't have a cigar in a Keno Lounge" or if you want to smoke a cigar go find a place that charges you to smoke there and while I like the idea of going into a really nice lounge..not gonna go to Casa Fuente and have my wallet weighed to walk in there and smoke a cigar...no way no how.

You can bring and smoke your own cigar at Casa Fuente, but you have to order a drink. They weigh your kidneys, not your wallet.

After Milton Berle told George Burns that he spent $20 on a cigar, George asked, "Are you going to smoke it or fcuk it?".

I'm sure you won't get the stink eye for just buying 1 $6 beer or $12 cocktail...still gonna be around a $30 charge to smoke a cigar there....I could go right out side the place and get a tug for that much and smoke my cigar at the same time

Check out Whiskey Down at the MGM Grand they have a great whiskey selection. There are places around the MGM that sells cigars, I think you can bring your own into Whiskey Down.

I never got stink eye for nursing a drink for 2 hours. Don't go thirsty. Leave a nice tip.

Yep,,,that's what I was trying to say by the time you go there and leave the "deal" just costed you upwards to $50 but hey.....it's a great deal to smoke our $5 cigars we bought at home and take em to a high end lounge and rent floor space and it makes the cigar smoke like a $6 cigar....your serve.

But itís hard to find a decent bar in an urban area these days, especially in NY that doesnít charge $10-$15 for beer or well drinks.

When I travel these days I pretty much avoid hotels in favor or BnBs and donít mind smoking on a stoop, a front porch. In Vegas, I have family but there are places to go on the down low with a cigar. Besides I like walking around with the regular people as much as anything.

Vegas whether itís shoes it or not is a seriously challenged place economically. So much bad covered up in neon and constructive make up.

In places like Seattle you have to keep walking if you want to have a smoke and many people give you the stink eye just on the street. Forget that.

Have never had an issue smoking in any bar in Vegas. While Casa Fuente was great ($47.50 for 2 mojitos and ~$20 for a Casa Fuente exclusive), I'd much rather grab a drink or 2 while playing blackjack and then head into one of the casino bars and light up. Total cost...whatever I just lost at blackjack.

I'd lose a lot more than that if I sat a Black Jack table. I have no business gambling, though...
