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...

Booked a table here after a Broadway Show. Live jazz was great and you can smoke cigars without shivering on the sidewalk. Will come back again!

Fantastic for those who like a cocktail and a cigar with live music. Great atmosphere and outstanding service at the bar.

First checked this place out last year and only stayed for a drink. I was just in NYC again and went back because I really enjoyed the atmosphere. I wasn't disappointed again...loved it! Cigars; whiskey; music....how can you go wrong?! Visited on the 99th birthday celebration of Mr. Frank Sinatra....Sinatra music all night! What a pleasant experience....highly recommend!

Over the past several years I have seen the Sinatra shows at the Carnegie Club several times. It just a great time to hear classic songs delivered well backed by a big band. I like Steve's vocals but the band really is a treat. The club itself is comfortable and intimate townhouse type set-up with the band squeezed into the... More

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.
