Description: Our menu is small in quantity, but big in taste. 6-7 Appetizers & 5-6 main plates, ranging in price from $10USD-$28. We are changing culinary style and service in Granada, Nicaragua. We are possibly the most expensive restaurant in Granada - but we do not compete with any restaurant in Granada. Warning: if you are traveling on a tight budget, please do not come to Ciudad Lounge as you will be terribly dissapointed and we will be sad that you couldn't enjoy our full range of offerings and this - what is almost 100% of the time a wonderful dining experience - will end up on this site as an experience from hell, due to the economic shortcommings of a client, that should not reflect on the style and performance of our restaurant. Average style-lounge-dining experiance is about $40/pp We assure you that your meal and time spent at Ciudad Lounge (average 3 hours) will be among your top 5 lifetime restaurant experiences.

“Best Cigar Lounge in Granada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

If you are in Granada and want to smoke best Nicaraguan cigar or cigars, this is the best place to go. The Lounge is open feeling and has a relaxing atmosphere. It is nice place to sit and enjoy your Cigar and Drinks,. Some the Cigars are bit pricy, it can cost you about $18. They also carry other Cigars ranging from $5 and upwards. The Lounge Manager, Cesar really take care of the details from cutting your Cigar to toasting and lighting your Cigar. Overall I had relaxing afternoon enjoying my Cigar. It is also great place to sample Nicaragua Cigar collection based on your taste and price range, if you want to buy a box to take home.

“Excellent cuisine & classy experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Ciudad Lounge is more than a top notch dining experience it is a submersion into a sensual experience of art, tabacco, wine and national liquors all wrapped up in a relaxing yet metropolitan ambiance. Native owner William and wife Noemi were a gracious host and wealth of knowledge of local cuisine,tobacco and arts. Our best dining and art experience in Granada hands down.

“New York Class in Granada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

For our anniversary I took Amy to Ciudad Lounge after hearing the great reviews by friends. Had a wonderful meal in a beautiful setting, perfect for a couple. Since then we have attended several events, always with good food and drink. The owners have also brought special musical experiences for diners to enjoy but most importantly, the restaurant has brought a new level of excellence to Granada.

“First class service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

I had the opportunity to stop by the wonderfully chic estalishment, Ciudad Lounge while in Nicaragua for work this past April. This was my second time frequenting this quaint location and I knew that I would not be disappointed. Upon entering I was warmly greeted by Noemi and William. My two colleagues were whisked away to the bar area where they were both treated to a couple of drinks with William while I worked with Noemi on my cigar and artwork purchases. During the entire process, she took the time to explain the craftsmanship of both the cigars and art and helped me to determine the best fit for my taste. But what I can't help but to remember is the hospitatlity and genuine care she took in asking about my work in Nicaragua. Very rarely does an owner take the time to talk to their clients/patrons in the way I found both William and Noemi to have done during this and my subsequent visit. They are wonderful owners who seem to have a bright vision and future in Granada and I wish them all the best and hope to see them soon.
