New Year Smoke at Van Dalen Cigars. On Friday the 24th of January and Saturday the 25th, the annual New Year herf at Van Dalen Cigars at the Pannekoekstraat in Rotterdam takes place. This New Year gathering has been happening from the moment that the shop moved from Meent to the Pannekoekstraat, about 8 years ago.
The event starts at 3 PM on Friday the 24th, and there is no admission. The large humidor offers plenty of cigars to be smoked that afternoon. The lounge closes at 9 pm. For those that aren’t available on Friday, there’s a second chance on Saturday the 25th of January. The shop opens at 9 AM and closes at 5 PM on Saturdays.
Van Dalen Cigars Den Bosch
Now if both Friday and Saturday are impossible, there’s always Van Dalen Den Bosch. On Sunday, January 26th, Van Dalen Den Bosch is hosting their annual New Year Herf. This is a tradition dating back at least 15 years. And every year the lounge is packed with cigar smokers, sharing best wishes, cigars, and stories.
So if you’re a cigar smoker, and if you’re in The Netherlands this weekend, these are the places to go.
