Been an old standby for years...many years. Though I used to live in SF long before the place opened in 2001, I still travel there often and frequented the place regulatory particularity after the smoke ban a few years after. The two older gentleman behind the, I assume owner operators, consistently treated me with respect over the years. As I... More

My husband found this place online before we left for our trip, since San Francisco has such strict laws about smoking almost anywhere. He loved Occidental (I don't smoke cigars). You can buy cigars from them or bring your own for a $5 cut fee.

Wow a place you can actually smoke a cigar inside at . great atmosphere with a mix of locals and tourists . Cigars a bit on the expensive side but as this was a treat to be able to sit at a bar and smoke in comfort

Set in between Chinatown and Nob Hill, this is the best place to relax if you are a cigar lover. There is a big window facing on Pine St and the local inside is quite small but very very cozy and warm. Good choice of cigars, with a higher price (remember!!! this is not a cigar store but a place... More

A small pub with an old time feel to it. Very good selection of spirits and beer . Small humidor with popular brands and several boutique cigars. Had good conversation with a couple of gents who were from Los Angeles and Georgia who were in the area for the Raider game. Cigar price was standard for a bar so don't... More

So San Fransisco has some rather militant laws about smoking. Thank the lord for this place. The cigar lounge makes it legal to smoke indoors in California by being owned by everyone that works there. I believe there are 6 owners, and they are all very good. I'm surprised there aren't more reviews on trip advisor about this place. It's... More

Been twice about 3 years apart (again in a couple months). Treated like a friend not a patron each time. Great sticks, fantastic adult beverage selection, just a good place to relax with friends or colleagues. No pretension among the people who were there, just good conversation. Only good memories (from what I can remember) as we closed it down... More

I like Occidental, not a bad place for a smoke. Its not a luxe clubby joint, but you can smoke, get a drink & relax in a descent atmosphere. Here's where I have a problem. After several visits (4) each time I get a bill, its not itemized, you never know what your paying for. Could never make sense of... More

Was in SF for the week and here 4 times, great place to smoke and chat. Nice selection of premium cigars available, priced higher then you'd pay in a store but worth it for the ambiance and great service. Fun, friendly chatty crowd there, easy to meet folks at the bar and share the joy of cigar smoking. Not to... More

I really needed to go out and be with grown ups the other night (traveling with a 13 year old can cause that!), so I ended up at Occidental. What a great find! I just dug this place. It was exactly what I wanted last night and my wife came along as loved it as well. Great small vibe and... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
