Best Place to Smoke Cigars in NYC?

Hey Monkeys

Just moved to the Big Apple and looking for a spot to smoke a stogie and meet cool people. Been going to Casa de Montecristo's every Friday due to their awesome BYOB policy and bumping DJ.

Probably going to check out Carnegie Club here pretty soon. Any recommendations on spots to smoke and meet successful people?

Thanks

Oh man, good thread. If you're ever in Chicago and want a stick, let me know.

Will do. Bigg's Mansion was my favorite spot when I lived there.

What are your favorite spots in Chicago?

I am a member of a lounge in the loop, but I hear Biggs is the spot.

Honestly, the cigar shop in the board of trade is a great place to shop and smoke. I hit that sometimes on Friday afternoon.

Ping me if you want to get together. I'm always down for a good stick.

The Grand Havana Room, but it's member's only. Great place to rub elbows with muckity mucks, I've seen Al Sharpton there before.

Feb 21, 2017

Grand Havana was a great time the last time I was in NYC.

Feb 21, 2017

...seen Al Sharpton there before, and it was the last time I ever went.

FTFY

Feb 21, 2017

haha. Although you're not wrong, I would go again in a heart beat next time I'm invited.

"Back in the day" a good friend of mine was a member there and I went at least once a month for a couple of years. "The Reverend" Al was there literally 75% of the time, often accompanied by much younger women or other B-list celebrities (DL Hughley was usually a part of his entourage). I guess Sharpton's form of public service pays pretty well and leaves plenty of time for leisure. Rudy Guiliani was also a regular and despite being arch-enemies in "real life" the two had no issues at GHR.

It FOR SURE pays well.. I'm not saying this is a substantiated fact... but a quick google search
Al Sharpton Net Worth
https://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome-psya... brings up $5M.... It also brings up some random Blaze article about his 20 year younger smokeshow girlfriend...just doing the work of the lord my man.

Club Macanudo

Club Macanudo

+1, pretty cool place - food is good too. Sticks Are a little bit pricey though, and as the name implies don't come in looking for a Padron.

Feb 21, 2017

If you're more of a downtown person, SoHo Cigar Bar is pretty good.

Feb 21, 2017

Only been to one cigar bar in NYC so don't have much to compare it to, but went to SoHo Cigar Bar with a couple buddies this summer and thought it was a cool spot.

+1 for Biggs Mansion in Chicago, although, its kind of annoying that you cant BYOB downstairs.

Feb 21, 2017

I rotate through Macanudo Club, Carnegie Club and SoHo Cigar Bar, usually as dictated by geographic convenience. In light of the fact that you don't have many options, they're all decent.

Macanudo and Carnegie are pretty classic - wood paneling, generally plush seating, jazz bands on busier nights, etc. If you're going to "meet successful people," I suppose these would be it. I've never seen conversations struck up between tables but the people at the bar typically look chatty.

SoHo Cigar Bar is what you'd get if a sports bar and a hookah lounge had a cigar-smoking baby. They bring out bottle service sparklers stuck in chocolate cake for awkward looking bachelor parties in NFL jerseys. I'm not hating - I've been party to it before and the chocolate cake is actually decent - just know that you probably won't be meeting Gordon Gekko here. The service is usually really friendly, and it's a great option if you're downtown and just wanna stoge up without schlepping it uptown.

Feb 21, 2017

My two stand-bys have already been mentioned, but just to plug, Sparks Steakhouse actually has a really great selection of stoges.

Feb 21, 2017

Cigar Inn is a good, low-key option if you're uptown. BYOB. Laid-back atmosphere. Definitely not going to see Al Sharpton there.

Feb 22, 2017

If you ever come to Atlanta, check out La Casa del Tabaco. They have great cigars and the guy there treats you like an old friend. Leather seats and huge humidor. It's in the Buckhead area so you catch my drift.

I usually smoke at work. Don't choose special places for that

Jul 31, 2018

Great thread. Does anyone have suggestion for London as well?

Boisdale is great. I used to frequent the one in Belgravia. You can get in without membership, but sometimes all tables are reserved for members.
