Established in the 1990's and located in the heart of Monona, we at the Tasting Room (affectionately known as TR) have been serving handcrafted premium cigars and refreshingly classic cocktails in our new Yahara River front (boat accessible) location since 2019. We offer a cozy, yet modern, inviting indoor space with an exceptional ventilation system that rivals Las Vegas hotels. Therefore, smokers and non-smokers can enjoy the lounge together, comfortably. Our outdoor space is equally as amazing with our "fire-themed" patio, nominated "Best of Madison 2020". With multiple fire tables, gas fire pits and river views, it's the perfect spot to catch up with friends or meet new ones, hang out after a round of golf or have a date night. 

Our warm welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, and "come as you are" approach, are a few of the reasons why the Tasting Room is a place for everyone--friends, neighbors, and travelers alike come to enjoy a great cigar, try a new cocktail, and share some good times in a casual, sophisticated environment.

After you’ve perused the ever-changing, meticulously curated humidor, selected your perfect cigar, browsed the extensive spirit menu, allowed our bartenders to craft the perfect cocktail to pair with your cigar or mood...sit back, relax, and unwind. We are sure to delight you with every sip or puff.

Great cigars. Great drinks. Great people.
