Cigars at Dakota
“There’s something about smoking a cigar that feels like a celebration. It’s like a fine wine. There’s a quality, a workmanship, a passion that goes into the smoking of a fine cigar.”
There’s nothing quite like the smell of a good cigar. Heady, rich, and complex, conjuring images of a bitter cup of coffee, the pages of a library book, a waxed leather chair. In Dakota Manchester, deep in the Bar, you’ll find the iconic cigar humidor; tucked next to the Champagne Room, Manchester’s humidor houses a plethora of the finest cigars around.
Some familiar, some modern; whatever your cigar profile of choice, find it here, or discover something new. Seasoned smokers will appreciate the variety in Dakota’s largest, and most expansive, humidor: the selection spans from the Montecristo Petit Turbos – for those who enjoy a mild smoke, quick and flavourful – to Davidoff’s much-loved Winston Churchill Aristocrat – a complex cigar; almond, oak, vanilla, satin. Discover your new favourite cigar from the humidor, or peruse the menu.
Choose your cigar from the humidor, then make your way through the elegance of the Bar and outdoors, to the purpose-built Cigar Terrace. Bringing a little old-school decadence to the city centre, the Cigar Terrace oozes understated luxury: leafy, intimate, and undeniably cosy. Pull up a chair and pick up a menu: there’s a host of tempting tipples that complement your cigar perfectly. The ultimate pairing has to be Louis XIII – the undisputed ‘King of Cognac’, rich with aromas of plum, honey and jasmine – but if you’re wanting a little sparkle, why not enjoy a glass of Krug, Dom Perignon Vintage, or Cristal; there’s also some sumptuous cigar cocktails, designed with Remy Martin, for those who like something a little different.
