One of the largest humidors in New Mexico and the only Davidoff certified retailer in Albuquerque. Monte's Cigars has a huge humidor, tons of seating, and multiple TVs for your enjoyment.
Monte's is certainly the most comfortable place to smoke a cigar in Albuquerque, perhaps on earth. Great selection, multi-level well-furnished lounge, and friendly staff always make me feel like a big shot. Truly a legendary place.
I’ve never smoked a cigar before went in blind and they hooked it up with a sampler and a stick that I am now I love with. The 2 gentleman in the front were super helpful hooked it up with some amazing smoke and a good cutter were super informational every question big or small was answered with no judgement of me not knowing. I’m definitely going back and am kinda interested in becoming a member.
I've been to cigar stores in many cities, and Monte's is one if the best. Large humidor, nice staff, and large variety of cigars.
I’ve been shopping and smoking at Monte’s since 1977 and have been through 3 generations of the Monte family running the joint. It was once in a strip mall where the owners got complaints from other stores about us, those vile cigar smokers. So now, Monte’s is in a free-standing building with 3 levels. Large humidor with a good selection. The only reason I’m giving Monte’s only 4 stars is because it went downhill for a while. Fewer dinners and parties for members, etc., but it is working it’s way back to 5 stars. Everyone who comes in is instantly greeted with very warm brotherly friendship. (Which, like all good cigar joints, means that there is a lot of ball busting going on once we get to know you.) Owners and customers are all like a welcoming tribe. So join us.
I am a frequent traveler, so I have the opportunity to visit cigar lounges all around the world. Monte's one of my new favorite lounges to go to. Great stick, great staff, and great regulars!
Best cigar lounge in Albuquerque. A great place to buy a cigar, and to sit down for a smoke. The lounge is very comfortable. Friendly staff.
Great lounge, I go at least once per week. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about cigars. The lounge is nice and spacious as well.
This is the best lounge in Albuquerque. Great selection and exceptional customer service. A “must stop” in the 505!
I've been coming to Monte's for about 4 months now and it's true, it's pretty unassuming from the outside but once you go inside it's a beautiful multi-level lounge with comfortable leather chairs, couches and nice tables and furnishings in general; the walk-in humidor is spacious and well-stocked; and the owner, Matt, is doing a great job running the place; they have a great room of lockers for members and the others who help him run the business are all personable and know their business and inventory well; I come from hack East (NY & NJ) and this is nicer than many of the cigar shops and lounges back there; I'm here with my cigar buddies at least every Saturday afternoons and some Friday afternoons as well; I give it 5 stars 😁
From the outside, Monte's looks questionable. If you don't know it's there, you might miss it. And the parking lot is pretty small. However, inside, they've got a great selection of cigars – perhaps the only place in ABQ that sells Davidoff, and a large and spacious lounge. On the main floor you'll find a room filled with membership lockers. Below that, offices and another great lounge area. I really like this place and plan to go back!
