El Padrino, a haven for luxury enthusiasts and cigar Aficionados
El Padrino, a premium bar, restaurant and cigar lounge located in the Atlantic Tower of Accra’s Airport City Hub is a haven for luxury enthusiasts and cigar aficionados. The upscale lounge features an ultra-modern decor in rich woods and leathers, a fine dining restaurant open for lunch and dinner, a non-smoking dining room, a bar featuring small-batch spirits, and West Africa’s largest walk-in humidor to preserve its cornucopia, a diverse range of tobacco blends and cigar types.
There is a clear ambition to offer an exclusive experience for those who revel in fine living, from drinks, dining, decor, jazz, and cigars. Clients come from all over the West African region, notably Nigeria and Cote D’Ivoire and of course, Ghana, where the audience is growing for those who appreciate having a dedicated venue specializing in their interests; including female clients who also enjoy cigar culture, especially cigarillos, which are smaller versions of the traditional cigars.
El Padrino, which means “The Godfather” in Spanish, pays homage with framed images to some of the world’s most notable cigar aficionados, including high profile personalities such as Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Jordan, Angelina Jolie, and Jay Z on its “Wall of Fame” lined along the entrance. At its rear is a glass-enclosed temperature-controlled chamber, a walk-in humidor that displays a variety of Cuban cigars and cigarillos.
Although cigars come from diverse regions around the world, including some African countries, this brand is specially focused on Cuban cigars such as Cohiba and Montecristo, as these are the most popular and range in aroma, strength, flavour, and combustion. The bar is complete with single malt whiskies, cognac and vintage rums, while the chef prepares continental cuisine that enhances the pairing experience. At El Padrino, every novice and aficionado can indulge in the absolute highest quality in taste, aroma and ambience.
The vibrant events and Smoke-Free dining room ensure El Padrino is welcoming to all tastes. Since its opening in 2019, it has quickly become a hub for like-minded individuals to relax, network and get together with friends in a luxe environment. The outlet is open daily from noon for lunch and also hosts special events, including cognac tastings, new product launches, corporate dinners, and a ‘Ladies of the Leaf’ event catering to female enthusiasts.
