LONDON – Boisdale of Canary Wharf
While this isn’t the highest spot in London, it’s certainly a favorite terrace for cigar lovers. The vibe is Scottish highlands meets British library luxe. There are three Boisdales throughout the city, but their Canary Wharf location is a stand-out for its glamorous polished wood bar and extensive selection of some of the world’s finest brown liqueurs. The bar also has a walk-in humidor, a cigar library where guests can sample the wares before making a purchase, an oyster and caviar bar and regular live music acts. Check out the collection of vintage Cubans in the library and then head to the heated cigar terrace, where you can wrap yourself in a tartan blanket, throw down some Scotch and take in the bonnie surroundings.
*If you’ve got your heart set on a higher terrace, head to Skylight at Tobacco Dock, where you can challenge your friends to shuffleboard or croquet tournaments, watch sporting events, and even ice skate in the winter months. Smoking is allowed in the outside spaces but expect more cigarette smokers than lovers of the leaf.
Dress Code: On the smarter side. This is London’s business district, so expect to see suits peeping out from underneath those plaid blankets. boisedale.co.uk
