IML Cigar Party at Blue Havana

CHICAGO – IML CIGAR SMOKER PARTY SATURDAY 05/25/13 2PM-6PM! This is the 6th year we are hosting the smoker, and every year it gets bigger and better! Join your smoke and fetish brothers for great cigars, complimentary snacks and drink, as well as a big discounts for IML attendees on any of your favorite cigars, humidors, lighters, accessories and more.

Blue Havana: 856 W. Belmont Ave, Chicago IL 60657, voted the best smoking lunge in Chicago 3 years in a row!  Besides a fun, friendly atmosphere, we have the second l…argest walk-in humidor in Chicago, 2 smoking lounges, an outdoor patio (weather permitting), cable TV and DVD players. Since Chicago banned smoking in Jan 2008 in all indoor spaces except 5 cigar shops, there is no other gay-friendly place to enjoy cigars and hang with your friends (or making new ones!).

Getting to Blue Havana from the host hotel is an easy 20 minute ride, and it is 2 blocks from the contest venue!

Cab: From the host hotel, get to Lake Shore Drive, go North and exit at Belmont West. Go about 1/2 mile and pass Clark Street – the shop is on your right just past Clark.

CTA subway / “L” trains: Go 3 short blocks West to the Red Line at Grand and State (0 East/530 North). Take the Red Line North (towards the Howard stop). Get off at Belmont – when you get to street level, there is a stoplight right there – walk away from it (due East). The shop is a 1/2 block down.

Even though the party is Saturday, you are more than welcome to visit the shop anytime during IML. The hours are Mon-Thurs 12pm-9pm, Fri & Sat 12pm-12pm and Sunday 1pm-6pm.

Next door is Taboo Tabou, where you can find lube, toys, etc. Around the corner is the famous Alley Store, which is having a big sale on select leather jackets and accessories all weekend!

You are welcome to wear whatever you want to the party, but just make sure it is G rated :-).

Spread the word! You make the event what it is by getting your friends to come! If you have any questions, please message me at’s make this years cigar party even bigger than last year!
