This may seem like a strange find for Lost Cowboy, but while on vacation last week in the glorious Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire my friends and I stumbled into Cigar Shenanigans Cigar and Cocktail Lounge a couple of times. Why? Do you need to ask? Anyplace with Shenanigans in its name is definitely worth a visit.

I have posted before about cigar culture and how I like the rituals that go with it from the humidors to the cutters, lighters, and of course the bourbon. So we made a visit to Cigar Shenanigan, which just opened in April, and we had a great time. We were greeted by Remington, the house dog, and then by the owners, who sat with us and told us all about the business and helped us conduct some of our own shenanigans and we had such a fun night – we came back a second time.

Sure, the place is a cigar bar and it is not for everyone, but there is plenty of room to spread out and find a private spot and the bar is great – specializing in classic cocktails. And your hosts are delightful and have created an environment that is comfortable and fun.

Should you be – or know – a cigar connoisseur, then a trip to Cigar Shenanigans is even more special – they have a large selection of premium cigars and an extremely knowledgeable host to steer you in the right direction.

Not to mention the funky and cheeky décor – using cigar bands and boxes in very interesting ways – but all very cool and classy. And you have to love the changing signs out front demonstrating the place’s sense of humor – always worth a look (left).
