My wife and I met our friends in from Canada here as a prelude to dinner. We ordered a round drinks. Kenny and I had and enjoyed one of their cigars expertly prepared by Kat. We chatted for two hours and then headed downtown for dinner (you can see my review of the Standard Grill). This is a great place... More

We were met by Chris the cigar person / bartender upon entering the club. A nice young lady who helped us pick Robusto mild cigars and took our drinks orders. She expertly prepared our cigars and bought our drinks. My buddy Ken and I fell into into exceptionally comfortable leather seats. A very nice place to spend time with friends... More

I enjoy a good cigar every day, and with New York's smoking laws, it's hard to find a place to smoke. We didn't go for the show, just for a cigar. A variety of excellent liquor is available and served in reasonable pourings. They sell cigars, but I had my own - which cost a $10 "cutting" fee. The ambiance... More

The club may not be the best set up for an orchestra but they more than made up for it in great service and great atmosphere on Saturdays with Sinatra! My friend and I caught the 8 PM show with Steven Miraglio, Great Great Great!

Nice club with a great orchestra/band with a lead singer that does Sinatra justice! Bartenders not extremely friendly, but I guess that's how it is in Manhattan. Don't look to grab a beer, no bottled beer is served, they will pour a corona. But the cocktails are very good. I have been many times and reviews about the excessive smoke... More

Show was amazing... the singer and the band were great. the only issue, which is a big one for me... it is awfully smokey... my north face jacket reeked of smoke for a few days, and needed to get dry-cleaned, as did everything else. I was surprised by the jacket however, as we had left it at coat check. From... More

Loved this place. The music was excellent, a Frank Sinatra guy with an orchestra. The only downside is, smoking is allowed, it seemed just about everybody had the biggest cigars I have ever seen. Could hardly breathe the next morning. We went to the last show at 10.30 its was so much dun

After pre-dinner drinks at The Campbell Apartment my husband was informed by the hostess of The Carnegie Club. Which is all in the same group including our dinner restaurant if Madison & Vine. All three of these destinations made fir an exceptional evening. However The Carnegie was wonderful! Great atmosphere and cocktail list. Their cigar list is extensive and my... More

This might only exist like this in NYC -- The Carnegie Club -- a place of smoky cigars, good scotch and old school crooning, populated by a crowd of well dressed sophisticates. Welcome back to the Good Life. The Carnegie Club in mid town recreates what we think existed in the 50s with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack at... More
