In this time that`s impossible find a relaxed place where the smokers are welcome, this is a great option. Happy hour or dinner, nice and tasty dishes. There is a sistem that I don`t know how it works thst even the non smokers do not get disturbed.

hard to believe or accept in this day and age that you have to have a meal sitting next to someone (or many) smoking a cigar -- my mistake for going.....

Esch Cafe was a cool spot we stopped by for a cocktail after dinner. It was a gentleman's club like atmosphere, where you could order different cigars with your drink of choice. I would definitely recommend Esch Cafe!

The title says everything.Food is what is said:honest.they change the menu now &then leaving your heart claiming but the news are good and very soon the old ones will be forgotten.the bar with classic international drinks and the celebrated brazilian'caipirinha'.they have a main house in downtown,where I've never been,and the branch(Leblon)near the beach,in an amazing street in Rio de Janeiro.you may stroll around and loose the pounds you've gained inside Esch.go.you'll enjoy.lunch&dinner.after theather program also.they are 'anything' friendly but pets and children themselves wouldn't like.

Esch Cafe is locatetd in the old part of Rio in the center. They also have one in Leblon (in Rio) and in Sao Paulo. The cafe is quite small, but with a great atmosphere of a cuban style restaurant. The waiters are dressed cuban, you can by from a large variety of cigars and enjoy good drinks. Be careful, it's a smoker cafe: If you don't want to go there to enjoy a cigar, go somewhere else. For everybody else it's the best place to smoke in downtown Rio and have some good food (mostly finger food). Good ace to stay.
