New Habanos Terrace in Italy


Puffing a Habano in one of the most gorgeous and prestigious places of the world, paired with the drink of choice and possibly accompanied by an exquisite delicacy from a high-level restaurant, is one of the greatest pleasures Habano aficionados.

That is why Habanos Terrace was put on the map at the beautiful Portofino square, specifically at Italy’s exclusive and historic “Cafe Restaurante Excelsior”.

Habanos Terrace’s launching ceremony was attended by some 30 select guests. The attendees enjoyed H. Upmann’s Magnum 54. They were also given a lighter and cigar cutter set by S.T. Dupont, partner and collaborator of the event.

As the host of the event, Chef Giorgio Bardi’s kitchen delivered refined appetizers based on foie gras, eel and black garlic, Gravelax salmon, Fraiche e Yuzu creme, Pata Negra ham with marinated melon, accompanied by two cocktails based on Gin Tanqueray N. Ten in a perfect pairing with the refined aroma of H. Upmann Magnum 54.

Thanks to the new Habanos Terrace, the “hall” of Portofino has become a benchmark place for the most demanding smokers, where they can enjoy the beauty of this wonderful corner of Liguria.
