Finding a Smoke in the Big Smoke
In a world turned bland by the PC brigade; there is surely no sweeter nor intoxicating aroma than the one created by a big fat Cuban cigar. But where to find a haven for such illicit pursuits – well the secret is out; thanks to an App created by Cities in Sound.
London has an abundance of cigar stores and terraces which are a delight for all cigar loving visitors and there is perhaps more cigar heritage and expertise in a few square miles in London than anywhere else in the world outside Havana.
The cigar scene in London is amazingly vibrant, new cigar stores and venues are opening every month and the London Cigar Guide App will help users locate and enjoy them.
The London Cigar Guide will provide visitor to London with a personal introduction to each cigar store and cigar terrace.
It will be updated frequently and supported on Facebook and Twitter with up to date information on events to help visitors plan their trip to London. The App is regularly updated with details of new openings to ensure it never goes out of date.
Once you have your devices ‘location services’ switched on you will be able to find your nearest store or terrace quickly and easily.
The guide also included some of the App creators’ favourite places to eat and drink as: “Man cannot live by cigars alone”.
Locations are put into four groups and are indicated on the map with different coloured pins:
• Green for Cigar Stores
• Blue for lounge/smoking terrace
• Orange for other points of interest (restaurants/pubs and historic sites)
• Red for the Audio Guide/walk
The London Cigar Guide builds on the success of the Cuban Cigar Walk London, the audio guide around the wonderful cigar stores of Mayfair and St James’s. The Audio Guide is included with the guide and building it into the App makes it easy to dip in and out of the audio guide. Alternatively new visitors to London can use it as an introduction to the history of the cigar trade in London.
The App is compatible with the Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad and will shortly be available for Android devices. For more information on the London Cigar Guide App visit their website.
