Hg2 : The Hedonist


Cigar aficionados congregate at Cigair, which is a little different from your average restaurants in Milan. Previously, it was a members-only club but is now open to all cigar-lovers (non-smokers are tolerated). A shrine to the hallowed Havana cigar, this former car workshop still with original hoists is bedecked with cigar memorabilia: even the lavatories are labelled Romeo and Julietta; the smiling, smoking Groucho Marx serves as their mascot. rnrnThe walk-in humidor is the largest in Europe with a shop stocked with rare Montecristos and Cohibas, a members’ lounge and a members’ storage vault (for the likes of Pavarotti and owner Andrea Molinari). The food – simple but good-quality Italian – is evidently secondary here, but juicy butch steaks particularly complement a cigar-touting machismo. rnrnLive bands perform on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, there’s al fresco seating in the summer, and the Cuban barman servicing the long 1950s Miami-style bar and lounge makes the best Mojitos in Milan.
