“Very vice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

My husband has been going here for years when he comes into the city. I finally made it here with him. What an amazing experience! We came in a couple of times during the week; once when it first opened in the day in casual dress then once in the evening in more formal wear. Both times we enjoyed the comfort & ambience of our surroundings. If you love cigar bars its a must to experience! I can't even imagine why someone would go in & not enjoy smoking or being around cigars, that would be a waste of time in complaints. Honorable mention would be a bartender by the name of Abraham! He was absolutely awesome, very attentive & enjoyed conversation! He was very knowledgeable in all questions we directed to him. We most definitely will be returning!

“Absolutely the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This has become my home away from home when I am in the city. The staff is always gracious and helpful and the bartender mixes a near-perfect Manhattan. The cigar selection is above average and the prices are not outrageous. Prepare for a $10 cutting fee if you choose to bring your own. If I had to complain, it would be that the coat check area is not really sealed off from the rest of the club so you cannot guarantee that your coat won't have a whiff of smoke scent to it when you leave. But this is just picking nits on an otherwise fine establishment.

“My kind of club!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Sinatra, comfortable seating, cigars and good drinks? Sign me up! This is a great club if you love these things. If you don't like cigar smoke do not come here. I felt like I was in 1930's New York. I felt as if Fiorello LaGuardia was about to walk in. The service was great. The Sinatra singer was spot on, not only the singing voice but he also sounded like Frank when he spoke. The orchestra was fantastic playing, "Sing Sing Sing" before the singer came out. We ordered a cheese plate that was huge with several cheeses and crackers and grapes in the middle. Two of us couldn't finish it. The only downside to this place is prepare to bring your wallet, its not cheap with a 30-40 cover. Call ahead for reservations.

“Opulent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

If you like a warm atmosphere, jazz music, great cigars, succulent ports, cozy seating & real Bew Yorkers, as well as new people, this is your spot! The attentiveness of the staff is on point, the appetizers coordinate perfectly with the wine list and top shelf spirits that there's no better place to end your evening. It's refined, private and easy....
Enjoy.

“If you are Cigar smoker.. DO NOT avoid this place at all cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Great place to relax and enjoy a cigar and a drink. when we arrived at the front door we were met by a woman who explained that in an hour they have a private event and it was reservations only. We were wearing shorts and she explained that next time long pants should be worn. She was great to make us feel welcome. As a cigar smoker i love this place and the old world charm. Bartender was great and struck up a conversation to also make us feel welcome. WE WILL BE BACK.
