Boyfriend likes to have a cigar in the evening. I went with him a couple of nights and had a drink. Staff was friendly, as were the other patrons, and the whole design was very cool.

Best Cigar bar I have ever been to. I generally don't enjoy in door venues for cigars. However, the ventilation at Civil is exceptional. Great selection of cigars and whiskey. We had 6 and the bar gave us a private room with TV. The wait staff, knows cigars and preparation.

Nice spot to hit for an evening. I don't do cigars but well worth a visit to drink some whiskey. They have a very large selection of whiskeys to try, lots of fun to experiment.. Staff are very friendly and professional.

I typically come to Civil once every few months when our cigar aficionado friend is in time. This time we came to celebrate a birthday and indulge in great whisky. The staff is always attentive, the bar staff has a great cocktail program. Please don't come here if you don't like cigar smoke, that just defeats the purpose of this... More

Not sure why I expected the staff to be pretentious or snooty but they were very kind and helpful to a novice cigar enthusiast!

This is my favorite cigar lounge in DC. They have amazing air ventilation and very comfortable seating. I like the ambiance and the service was friendly.

The atmosphere was great and the cigar and drink options were good, however they were clearly short staffed during our visit and the service was somewhat lacking despite the best efforts of the only waitress they had. May give them a second chance next time I am in town to see.

I rarely smoke cigars anymore, but I met a friend here. The amount of cigar smoke was pleasant and not overwhelming. It made me wish that I had been desiring of a good cigar!
