If you have ever wondered what it's like to step back in time this is a must go. On Saturday night you must have reservations but the big band and singer makes you feel like you are being serenaded by Frank Sinatra and the big bands from every movie you have ever seen. They are amazing!!! Dress up grab some... More

Great place for all cigar + jazz + whiskey lovers, I've just happened to be in NYC visiting my friend in weekends and enjoyed the exceptional performance of Steve. Very nice Saturday night. Reminder: reservation is required for this place

If you love smoking cigars, the Carnegie Club is simply fantastic. Good service, quiet and very much in the tradition of a cigar lounge. A must for cigar aficionados.

The Carnegie Club has a great mid-town location, just a few doors off of 7th Avenue on 56th Street. The inside is a very elegantly appointed cigar bar. If you are looking for a swanky place to chill out and enjoy a cigar this is it. They have a terrific wine list as well. We attended the Sinatra show on... More

It's got a nice atmosphere, lots of lounge seating as well as bar seating. A great place to relax, have a drink and a nice cigar. It isn't trendy. Low key and relaxing.

We have smoked cigars here on at least 30 occasions. The drinks are expensive and the service is variable. On the other hand the big leather couches are comfortable and the ventilation system is good. At night there is usually a jazz trio or quartet. On the weekends the Frank Sinatra impersonator show is fabulous. Remember there is a tobacco... More

My friend and I visited the club during a week long trip to Manhattan, it had come highly recommended by friends and colleagues who had visited previously whilst in NY on business. We booked ahead and opted for premium seating, the mental image we had built of the club was not what we were presented with when we arrived. The... More

The location is hard to find but its close to Times Square and Rock Ctr. Gets very crowded on weekdays after the offices close. Drinks are pricey, but when its not packed this is a great place to enjoy a smoke. Tip- You are allowed to smoke cigars bought from local stores on the day if your visit(Davidoff and Nat... More

if possible this place deserves a negative number. the staff is rude and the management even worse. there are better places to grab a drink and cigar. while steven maglio is one of the best performers singing sinatra tunes and others from that era, he deserves a better venue with a more professional and courteous staff. do not wast your...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
