I figured my only other options would be loungesor one of the few bars grandfathered here in NYC. Circa Tabac (now SoHo Cigar Bar) and Carnegie club have been on my list along with shops like Nat Sherman, Davidoff (formerly De La Concha), and Cigar Inn (was told the uptown location is better).
I like the shops, I don't get to Nat's much but when I do I really enjoy the atmosphere and service there. The new Davidoff on 6th Ave is ok, the smoking lounge is comfortable but a little limited in size however I never see it too busy. These two close fairly early ie by 6-7pm. Cigar Inn uptown is the better location if you want a more chilled/relaxed evening. It stays open late and it's BYOB!
Not been to Soho Cigar bar yet, Carnegie club is ok but pricey - I only really visit if friends want to go or colleagues want to as it's close to work. Been to Macanudo's a fare few times always on the work expense or someone else paying as it's $$$$!!! The vibe has been generally ok but expect wall to wall suits.
hmm talking of Nats I may have to pop there tomorrow since we're getting a dump of snow!! Been freezing my fingers off sitting by Central Park several evenings this week
