Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s upscale shopping and entertainment district of Jalan Ampang, and just steps away from the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, the new Club Macanudo location is part of The Shoppes at Four Seasons Place, a stunning retail mall that caters to locals and visitors with discerning taste.

The elegantly-appointed, intimate cigar lounge is sleek and modern, designed in a minimalistic style. The interior of Club Macanudo at Kuala Lumpur boasts a smoking lounge, private VIP rooms and retail space with rich woods, lush upholstery and bespoke lighting that casts a golden glow throughout the space.

The Club’s retail selection has been curated to feature a collection of Macanudo cigars including the popular Inspirado line, a global best-seller for the brand. Club Macanudo Kuala Lumpur also stocks a selection of Scandinavian Tobacco Group’s most popular brands including CAO, Silencio, Balmoral and Don Tomas.
