Soho Whiskey Club
Residing in the heart of London’s Soho district, the Soho Whiskey Club is housed inside of the historic Vintage House. Founded during the Second World War by native Italians Leo Donati and his wife, The Vintage House was then passed down by family members, eventually reaching its position today as one of the most well-known sellers of fine wine, spirits and of course, cigars.
The Soho Whiskey Club resides in a previously unused area of the Vintage House, which has been renovated into a high class club that offers hundreds of malts, wines, and fine cigars.
The Soho Whiskey Club even offers some Whiskies that are rare, or no longer commercially available, making it a must-see for any cigar, or whiskey, aficionado.
The Soho Whiskey Club opens at 10am Monday-Friday, and 1pm on Saturday.
JJ’s in Green Park
JJ’s Wine Bar in Green Park has been serving fine wines to its many patrons since it was first opened in 2007. Featuring a relaxing atmosphere, multiple TVs, and varying types of music, JJ’s has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a fine place to share a drink with a friend, or a venue to host your next birthday. With it’s spacious interior, fine wines, and classy environment, JJ’s seems to be one of the best cigar bars in London.
JJ’s is open from 5pm, Monday through Friday, and can be specially rented for any events you may have in mind. Wines typically run from £12.00 to £15.00 a bottle.
Fox of St.James
Hailed as one of the most famous cigar shops in London, the cigar experts at Fox have been selling premium cigars from their store front for over 200 years. One of the main draws of Fox is their exemption from the smoking ban, allowing you to sample cigars before you purchase while still in store, all of course, in their luxurious smoker’s lounge.
Fox of St.James has been visited by cigar lovers from all walks of life, from kings to celebrities to British and foreign royalty, just another proof of their excellent service and professional salesmanship.
Fox offers cigars for the common man from prices as low as £3.00 all the way up to £35.00 and beyond, making them the one-stop shop for cigar aficionados of all backgrounds. Fox of St.James currently is a sole proprietor of cigars and tobacco, and is open Monday through Friday at 9:30am.

Located at 63 Elizabeth Street, Tomtom has been providing cigar enthusiasts with quality service since it was first opened in 1977. With a stock containing the finest cigars to come out of Cuba, and an expert staff to give any advice you need, Tomtom has gained a reputation as being one of the best cigar shops in London.
Tomtom has even received a number of prestigious awards including being voted ‘Cigar Retailer of the Year‘ at the Millennium Cigars awards.
Tomtom is open at 10am Monday through Friday, 11am on Saturdays, and 12am on Sundays.
