#3 Cigar Bar Miami: Espanola Cigar Bar
Looking for a cigar bar with a boutique sensibility? Then definitely don’t sleep on Espanola. This simple cigar shop was transformed into an absolute world-class craft bar and cigar lounge, and it’s without a doubt a staple to the Espanola Way scene. The second you step inside, you’ll be met with the relaxed atmosphere and immediate sense of belonging. It’s truly a gem.
Cigars: Now, we’d like to preface, seeing as Espanola is fairly boutique, you won’t find the largest selection of premium cigars, but they by no means are limited. They chose the quality over quantity route. You can indulge in cigars from top brands like Camacho, Cohiba, Drew Estate, and more.
Drinks: Have you ever had a cocktail put in front of you that looks almost too good to actually drink? Yep, that’s the kind of mixology that’s going on at Espanola. From domestic and imported beers to some of the finest handcrafted beverages in Miami, Espanola certainly doesn’t skimp on the drink selection.
Eats: Probably one of the most surprising aspects of Espanola is the food selection, and not only the selection, but how absolutely delicious everything is. From flatbreads to desserts to seafood, no matter what you’re hungry for, Espanola will deliver.
