The Garden Room at The Lanesborough Hotel
Totally geared towards cigar enthusiasts, this neat venue cleverly adds some indoor assets to an outdoor space. The covered room is decked out in full Town and Country mode, with oak tables, a roaring fireplace and cosy furnishings, plus gentle underfloor heating and thick blankets for nippy evenings. It’s a haven for smokers, and a surprisingly smog-free spot for any non-puffing companions; the partially open walls sheltered by manicured hedges allow air to circulate while keeping out the wind, and a heavy-duty extractor fan in the ceiling dispels any lingering whiffs. At the entrance, a walk-in humidor displays an extensive range of Cuban and pre-Castro cigars – a taster of the enjoyment to come. Accompany your premium smoke with a top-notch Cognac, including some rarities priced at up to £4,000 per shot.
