    The West Village outpost of Bar and Books has a posh selection of literature, an astute whiskey menu, and a long list of cigars. Celebrities stop in from time to time to enjoy a 60-year-old scotch.

    Great atmosphere, good conservations, subtle background music, cigar selection is decent, but scotch, rum & bourbon pairing make it a great venue. Alex and Julie are the bet wait staff.Get there early

    In honor of the Tribeca Film Festival, try the "Blush Blush", a light, bubbly blend of BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Gin, St-Germain™ Liqueur, Campari®, citrus foam, and club soda.

    Can't say enough about how great this place is for a cigar and scotch, only drawback is the inside is quite smoky (not great ventilation), so I recommend grabbing a table outside to catch up

    If you are in the mood to splurge, get the Dalmore Cigar Malt, pricey at $40 a pour, but it's discontinued and a fantastic pair with a nice stick

    Get a Bar&Books stogie and ask the bartender for a scotch/whiskey recommendation. Hands down best cigar lounge in NYC, and vintage Bond movies seals the deal.

    One of the last bastions of freedom in the city where you can relax with a cigar, a scotch, and a Bond movie playing silently in the background.

    A library inspired theme makes this place a natural choice to enjoy a cigar and excellent scotch. If you're not into scotch however, try a Dark and Stormy.

    Hands down the best cigar and scotch bar in nyc. All the others are overrated because this one actually has girls that also go. Plus you have to love the red velvet.

    Enjoy a low-key setting with cigars and fancy cocktails. While it is expensive, the atmosphere is worth it.

    British library style bar, with a bartender that looks like Steve Van Zandt's character in the Sopranos. Whiskey+ cigars, what more do you need?

    I love this place. Great nightcap spot. I usually have amaretto or vino, and a couple puffs. The atmosphere is fantastic.

    A cozy library cigar bar with a wonderful scotch selection. The only smoking permitted venue in the neighborhood!

    Bring your own sticks as the ones available are hugely overpriced. A Davidoff Millennium Lonsdale is $75.00. The cutting fee is only $5.00

    House band cigars are surprisingly good. Very solid Scotch/Whiskey/Bourbon list as well.

    Suggest this for a date- whiskey flights and cigars are sure to make you the look like the baddest chic around town.

    The whisky selection is superb and not overly priced. the cigar selection is weak and extremely overpriced. Save your money, bring your own and pay the 5 dollars. Its worth it.

    Made a res that was confirmed by email and when we arrived we were told that they didn't "have it on the books" and that it happens all the time. Hostess was rude and didn't do anything to help
