We’ve all been there!
You’re in central London. You’ve left your cigars at home and can’t bear the thought of going the whole night without the enjoyment of a fine Cuban cigar.
Well that doesn’t have to be the case anymore. Thanks to Nic Wing (top man in the cigar scene) he has launched The London Cigar Guide app.
What’s that I hear you ask? Well let me tell you. For a mere £4.99 this app can pinpoint your nearest cigar retailer and smoking terrace at the push of a button meaning you can be kicking back and lighting up in no time at all.
London has always been synonymous with the very finest cigars and in recent years there has been a growing demand for comfortable places for cigar smokers to relax and enjoy a cigar with friends and colleagues. And with the constant opening of new cigar terraces, even the greatest aficionado can’t keep up, but this app does the work for you.
Not only does the app tell you where you can find your nearest cigar, it also gives you a personal introduction to each cigar store and terrace – great for the cigar smoker on the move.
Impress friends by being able to recommend a hidden terrace for cigars and cocktails in the summer, or impress your boss by pretending you know all the spots in London where it’s safe to spark up a stogie.
The London Cigar Guide will provide visitors to London with a personal introduction to each cigar store and cigar terrace.
The App will be updated frequently and supported on Facebook and Twitter with up to date information on events to help visitors plan their trip to London. The App is regularly updated with details of new openings to ensure you are always ahead of the game.
With your devices ‘location services’ switched on you will be able to find your nearest store or terrace quickly and easily, and get their contact details in case you would like to pre-order.
The fun doesn’t stop there because “Man cannot live by cigars alone” so the guide also includes favourite places to eat and drink.
Locations are put into four groups and are indicated on the map with different coloured pins, making it easy to work out what is located near you:
Green for Cigar Stores
Blue for lounge/smoking terrace
Orange for other points of interest (restaurants/pubs and historic sites)
Red for the Audio Guide/walk
For anyone in the London cigar community, The London Cigar Guide builds on the success of the Cuban Cigar Walk London, with a built in audio guide offering an introduction to the history of the cigar trade in London.
We found it fascinating learning about the history of Alfred Dunhill’s London store, and finding out where Winston Churchill used to live. By purchasing this app you’ll pick up some great nuggets of cigar trivia to impress your cigar smoking friends next time you are out.
We at Cut The Cap are going to attempt the actual cigar walk with the audio guide in the near future so watch this space.
The App is compatible with the Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad but don’t worry all you android users, the app will shortly be available for you as well.
Get the London Cigar Guide App now from ITunes, and prepared to have all that info in the palm of your hand. We can’t help but think “I wish I thought of this first”
