Emirates Palace, P.O. Box 39999 Abu Dhabi
As one of the only seven star hotels in the world, it’s only natural that there be a resident cigar bar, and the Havana Club at Emirates Palace certainly fits the luxurious bill. Adorned with planted palms, tobacco leaf walls and masculine settees, the Havana Club is reminiscent of the British brandy and cigar clubs found expressed in the pages of Graham Greene. And like the characters in a Greene novel, gentlemen at the Havana Club can often be found sipping on fine armagnacs and smoking rare cigars, in luxurious and sophisticated surrounding, smack dab in the middle of the desert. But, it’s not all British-boys club here, Havana also serves up excellent creative cocktails.
