I visited this strange restaurant to try goat pizza. It was one of the biggest surprises in my life since TripAdvisor reviews were pretty good. Pizza is so bad its unbelievable. Its nlt pizza at all, its something I dont know what its called. Service is so and so, and atmosphere is low.

If one wants to sit at a bar in NYC, enjoy a drink and smoke a cigar, it's not easy to do. But you can do it here, yes it gets a bit smoky, in the summer the windows are open, which helps.

Note that this place rebranded (sometime ago) and is now called "Soho Cigar Bar ". I love this bar. It is friendly, the staff are absolutely expert, prices are reasonable, food is great, and the booze and cigar lists are both first class. I come here whenever I am in New York.

Now this place is called Soho Cigar Bar. Classy decorated, not stiff, you don't have to dress up to be there, great cocktails and superb service. It's a paradise for those who enjoy smoking.

SoHo Cigar Bar, former Circa Tabac is friendly place that offers limited food menu, great selection of drinks and good choice of cigars. One of very few places in New York where you can enjoy smoke and drink at the same time. Nice decor, good service, reasonable prices.

We were looking for a place in SoHo to relax and have a drink and cigar after dinner and found Circa Tabac. When we walked in the first night the atmosphere was like a 1930's speakeasy with music from the 40's, 50's and 60's. The waitress was so much fun she even sang Happy Birthday in the Marilyn Monroe style... More

Staying in SoHo

Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
