Cigar Masterclasses


Explore the fascinating world of cigars at Knightsbridge's best kept secret, The Garden Room, with our team of dedicated and passionate cigar sommeliers. Taking place every month, discover a different cigar from our range of Cuban and pre-Castro cigars, paired with the perfect cognac or whiskey.

The one hour masterclasses will include an introduction to Cuban cigars with particular focus on the origin and history of the cigar featured in that month's event. Taste and smoke the cigar of the month in good company on the heated and covered terrace and ask our cigar sommelier any questions you might have, they will be delighted to share their vast knowledge!

The one-hour masterclass will include:

- Meet our cigar sommeliers
- A seated introduction to Cuban cigars as well as an introduction to the cigar of the month itself
- Cigar of the month to taste and smoke
- A cognac or whiskey from our selection to enjoy with your cigar (outlined in the dates section below)
- Q & A with our cigar sommelier and the opportunity to learn and develop your taste and knowledge of cigars
