Very unique place located in the West Village. Whiskey and cigar bar in a "library" setting. Super cool vibe. Definitely recommend checking it out if you like either whiskey or cigars. Don't stop here if you don't like the smell of cigar smoke.

A friend and I were walking around and saw the name of the bar and was intrigued. What a find!!! Whiskey and cigar menus!! Old dark wood walls and tin ceilings. Beautiful bar and detailed service. Will definitely return.

This little bar is so fun- it feels like an old library, and you can smoke cigars. We used to spend a lot of time here during college.

One of the rare spots in NYC where one can enjoy a drink AND a cigar. They have an excellent selection of both. The service is spot on. Its located in the trendiest neighborhood in the city, yet it is quiet and unassuming

Great cigar bar with cocktails. Good selection of cigars, but it can get very smoke-filled (duh, I know). I love smoking cigars so always make sure I stay nearby.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
