When it comes to tobacco, this Old Town icon is on fire. – The Scene
Dark and aromatic, whimsical and fanciful: Humidors--full of hundreds of different cigars--stretch from floor to ceiling. Menus with tobacco descriptions help navigate you through the myriad glass canisters. Owner Diana Silvius Gits even has her own cigar brand and blend. If it's anything like her personality, expect a bold, unique flavor.
Vice is spun into sophistication with the fancy and expensive accessories of a true connoisseur. Choose from marble ashtrays, beautiful wooden humidors, fine leather or sleek silver cigar cases and carved meerschaum pipes. A wide range of costly lighters is also available, including the Gatsby by S.T. Dupont, a gold-plated beauty with red Chinese lacquer and the signature Dupont "ping"--a cool $760. Like imported cigarettes? Find brands from all around the world at Up Down, including the world's most expensive--the Treasurer. They're $7, but they do have a silver lining and come in a silver tin.
