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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
