Up Down Cigar is an old town institution having kept its doors open for the past 50 years. With connections all across the cigar industry, there are few things you won't find that will make for a good smoke. From La Palina to Padron and Tatuaje, you won't even find any trouble finding some Opus X at Up Down. They bring in some of the biggest names in the cigar industry nearly every month and recently opened a back garden patio for outdoor smoking in the winter. Not the greatest place to have a cigar during winter, the retail space is a little cramped to bring five or six friends to go smoke. Overall the staff is knowledgeable and helpful and the shop has a lot of history and great selection.

The best place to get dim sum on the north side. This Uptown institution serves dim sum daily from 9am-9pm and is BYOB with a fully stocked bar. Not a dim sum fan? You can still order from a full Chinese menu as well as a bubble tea bar. Furama can also serve as an event venue space and is wheelchair accessible.

The country's oldest family run cigar shop, you'll find Iwan Ries right off the CTA in the downtown Loop. Sporting the widest selection of pipe tobacco in the country, Iwan Ries serves as a pipe shop and cigar shop and cigar lounge if you're down to pay the $15 guest membership fee. The workers were amazingly congenial and knowledgeable and pointed me the right way to find some Opus X Angel Share and to try a house blend cigar. Great shop with a wide selection with good location downtown, just be aware that they close relatively early, but the lounge stays open much longer.

Great boutique cigar shop carrying many boutique brand names. You will find the humidor stocked with plenty of Liga Privada, RomaCraft, and Viaje Cigars. It is a great place to look for small batch production cigars and carries some of the finest in Nicaraguan tobacco. You can also buy pipe tobacco as well as accessories from Blue Havana.

This cigar shop located in the heart of River North will just do. Pros: Tax is already baked into the price. Most macro brands of cigars carried here. If you're lucky, they'll have some Opus X in stock. You can find Camacho Ditkas here. They have their own Rocky Patel Chicago blend. Cons: There is nowhere to sit and you can't light up a cigar in there. Boutique brands are almost wholly absent from the shop. I would liken this to going to your standard liquor store that lacks really great microbrews or are missing exceptional quality bourbon/scotch/or wine. They do carry most major brands if that is your cup of tea. If you know nothing about cigars, this place will fit the bill as they'll carry most recognizable name brands.
