Where can you go to enjoy good premium cigars, have a drink and a nice bite to eat? Pairings Cigar Bar in Media PA! What a find. I don’t know how they pulled it off but it is a nice change a pace from the BYOB places which is the bulk of the cigar lounges I attend. Many of these places charge you a corkage fee anyway and while at the end of the day its much cheaper to bring your own, going to a place with a great selection of whiskey and wines means you get a nice change of pace.
Pairings provides a very comfortable and spacious venue to sit down, relax and enjoy a cigar. It’s really that simple. They provide food, multiple options for libations, and some top rated cigars. The food? Don’t expect a five-star restaurant. Don’t expect a long list of typical bar food either. Just a few hot tapas sized options to enjoy with your drink and cigar. The cigars? They carry a nice selection of premium blends. Pairings carry Casa Magna, Rocky Patel and Oliva just to name a few in one of the most well thought out humidors I have seen. Each cigar has a ratings card that gives the purchaser a visual graph showing the strength of the cigar. While there isn’t a walk in humidor nor an extensive menu of cigars, you will find excellent sticks at reasonable prices. More than enough to satisfy the cigar aficionado.
I also give the place high marks for space and seating in the lounge as well as ventilation. It is very clean and well organized. 15 smokers would be able to be spread out enough that you don’t feel like you are on top of each other. This is a very good game day place as well. I was there for the hard opening in January and had a great time in the packed out venue. It was well attended and featured live music. Check out my videos here at my YouTube Channel. I apologize for the quality. It was a live Periscope broadcast.
Pairings is the type of place you don’t have to plan to go to. You can show up hungry, thirsty and ready to smoke on a moment’s notice and have all your urges taken care of. Way to go!
