My husband and I were looking for a nice cigar lounge after a show and this was the only one we found. It was very classy, sophisticated, retro design lounge. Cocktail waitresses cut and light your cigar and although the cocktails were expensive, they were a good pour and lovely with a cigar. I liked the fact everyone was dressed... More

By far, it is the best place in NY to smoke a cigar. You can buy a cigar there or smoke your own. You may have to pay a 10usd fee. Nice people around. Works late, so you can't miss it

This has a limited cigar menu in my opinion but enough to pick something and enjoy... cigars range from $20 upwards... expect to spend around $100 for two of you with a couple of drinks. The seats are very comfy and the people watching is great. Compared to other cigar bars I found this very smokey (yeah yeah I know... More

Went on Saturday night where they have an amazing live band and Sinatra tribute, superb. Great service, tasty cocktails and big cigars, what more could you want!! Book in advance as it's not huge and us very popular. Can't recommend it highly enough, its top of our list next time we go to NY!!

The perfect scene with the jazz music, scotch, cigars, the perfect crowd and the cozy lounges. We went on a Saturday night not knowing it's Sinatra night and it was perfect. We got there late so ideally you should make a reservation to make sure you get some of the comfy seats, but I'd say it's a must go in... More

We came to NYC to get married and went here the next night, I can honestly say it was our favourite thing that we did whilst in NYC. Steve Maglio and The Stan Rubin Orchestra were absolutely brilliant, we were blown away. Next time I am in NYC we are coming back here! We booked premier seats and were right... More

Wow wow wow. Reserved premier seats and we were practically part of the orchestra! Fantastic night and the girls hosting and serving drinks were incredible, wished my friend happy birthday when we arrived, and were so polite, smiling and checked we were good for drinks all night long. The Stan Rubin Orchestra were exceptional. Highly recommended

This is a "must stop" for me on each of my trips to NYC. The service from Scott at the bar and Kat and her colleagues on the floor are excellent. Their are regulars which are hilarious to listen to as they banter at the bar and the selection of beverages is solid. The two floor set up is also... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
