Default Casa Fuente in Las Vegas. Color me unimpressed.

I'm in Las Vegas for the SHOT Show, and "everybody" said "you have to go to Casa Fuente".

Meh, it's way, way, way, way over priced, and really nothing special. I didn't even bother to take pictures (and I love to take pictures).

One star at best.

Casa Fuente is what it is.... A cigar lounge, on the Las Vegas Strip, filled with Fuente HTF's, in the middle of a shopping mall. That in itself is so out of the ordinary, it is worth a stop, if in the area. It is also smaller than I expected, high priced(I did expect this) and was SUPER CROWDED when I was there.

IMO it is like going to Yellowstone and seeing Old Faithful... A place you make an effort to see if you're there and never have.....how you interpret the experience is secondary, it is that you have the experience.

When I'm back in Vegas, if I'm in the exact area, I'll probably go back... Not because I was so impressed last time, but because I didn't actually sit, have a drink and smoke....

Maybe that is like going to Yellowstone, getting to Old Faithful and then leaving before it does its thing.....

I love to sit at Casa Fuente, have a Mojito/cigar and people watch. Yes, the cigars are over priced, but it's not like you go there to buy your everyday cigars...My lady even enjoys sitting and watching too.

Right on! And why would guys on a Cigar Forum want pictures of anything cigar related anyway? Give us pics of guys at shooting clubs, that's what cigar smokers want.

I heard that all of Casa Fuente's cigars are fake. Glad that Chief didn't get taken in by the cheap glitz and big tits. Now, let's hear all about how you went all the way to Vegas to meet up with people you don't know just to shoot at clay targets. Sounds suspiciously like a herf to me.

I like Casa Fuente -- my wife can shop and I can have a cigar a drink and watch a game. It's not the only place I have cigars in Vegas, but I always try to go there at least once each trip.

Yes it is overpriced. What isn't overpriced in Vegas these days?

That's the great thing here -- you don't like it so you don't have to go there. I do like it and I can (and do) go there.

I highly doubt that the Casa Fuente cigars are fake. While not owned by the Fuente Family, there is a direct relationship between Casa Fuente and Arturo Fuente.

As for Casa Fuente itself, I love the place. I agree that the cigars are expensive. If you buy anything other then the "Casa Fuente" House Brand, you will be paying a huge markup. The House Brand cigar is a great stick, and while expensive, I believe it is worth buying at least 1-2, especially if you buy the Lancero.

I also enjoy the Mojito's at Casa Fuente- best I have had in Vegas.

I have yet to find a better place to just sit, smoke a cigar, and do some people watching.

My Wife picked me up a couple sticks from Casa Fuente when she was there in Nov. The AF's were 2x normal price but the Diamond Crowns were a bit cheaper than online prices....go figure
She said the place was cool, for what it was, and would be happy to go back there for a Mojito while I had a smoke.

Shot Show? Is that what they're calling the Adult Entertainment Expo these days? Makes sense, I guess.

Way,way,way over priced? Just try to imagine the overhead that place has and trying to pay it on cigars and drinks. You have to pay the price for the experience if you want it.
