No matter why you’re visiting NYC, dozens of areas are worth going to. I’ve spent enough time there to know the best places to go, especially when you want to spend some time in a cigar bar.

Check out my list of the best cigar bars in New York City below!


SoHo Cigar Bar

32 Watts St, New York, NY 10013
Phone: (212) 941-1781
Visit Website

One of my favorite cigar bars is in Lower Manhattan, just a block away from the Museum of Ice Cream. The vibe is a bit old school, with candles lighting the entire bar.

They have a fully stocked bar with liquor, wine, and beer to choose from while you smoke your favorite cigar. I love their old fashioned, and they have a food menu too.


Club Macanudo

26 E 63rd St, New York, NY 10065
Phone: (212) 752-8200
Visit Website

If you’re wondering where to get a drink in Lenox Hill by Central Park, Club Macanudo is a great spot. You’ll need to dress to the nines if you plan to visit this cigar bar.

They have a strict dress code, but I promise the food and beverage menu is worth it. They have a huge beverage menu, and I highly recommend buying a cigar and sharing a bottle of wine with friends.


The Carnegie Club

156 W 56th St, New York, NY 10019
Phone: (212) 957-9676
Visit Website

Just south of Carnegie Hall is the stunning Carnegie Club. This posh cigar bar has everything you want in a cigar bar. It has an intimate setting and features some of the best cocktails in NYC.

They have a variety of cigars, and I prefer the mild ones. As for the drinks, their mojitos are to die for.


Davidoff of Geneva

Multiple Locations
Phone: (212) 751-9060
Visit Website

Something I love about Davidoff of Geneva is that there are a few locations throughout the city. It’s a more casual spot than the others on this list, with wood walls and a large selection of cigars.

They don’t have as large of a bar selection but sharing a bottle of wine and having a cigar here is my favorite.


Casa de Montecristo Cigar Lounge

1016 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10022
Phone: (212) 750-0809
Visit Website

One of the fun places to get drinks in Midtown East is Casa de Montecristo Cigar Lounge. It’s a popular spot for tourists and locals who want excellent cigars at a reasonable price.

Their bar selection is smaller, but you can’t go wrong with a local beer or cocktail like a mojito.


Hudson Bar and Books

636 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014
Phone: (212) 229-2642
Visit Website

Down on Hudson Street in the Meatpacking District is Hudson Bar and Books. The bar features books along the wall, dim lighting, and excellent cigars.

Their bar menu features classic, signature, and seasonal drinks, but I love their classic negroni or vodka martini.


Martinez Handmade Cigars

171 W 29th St, New York, NY 10001
Phone: (212) 239-4049
Visit Website

A favorite among places to go out in Koreatown is Martinez Handmade Cigars. It’s unassuming from the outside, but it’s a great little spot.

The drink menu isn’t something to write home about as a smaller cigar bar. I recommend going with a beer or a glass of whiskey or bourbon with one of their handmade cigars.


Barclay Rex Pipe Shop

126 Pearl St, New York, NY 10005
Phone: (212) 962-3355
Visit Website

Barclay Rex Pipe Shop in the Financial District on Pearl Street. Even from the outside, this cigar bar looks elegant. It’s a shop on the first floor and a smoking lounge on the second.

Downstairs, they don’t have a vast selection of drinks, but the cigar options are wondrous.


Rex NY Cigar Club

126 Pearl St, 2nd floor, New York, NY 10005
Phone: (212) 858-9932
Visit Website

When you venture upstairs from the Barclay Rex Pipe Shop, you’ll find the Rex NY Cigar Club. This spot requires reservations and membership to the club, so it’s very elite.

You can smoke purchased cigars and sip on delicious cocktails here. My favorites are their old fashions and whiskey sours.


Havana Dreams Cigar Lounge

63-10 Woodhaven Blvd, Queens, NY 11374
Phone: (718) 685-0078
Visit Website

If you’re out in Queens, the best cigar bar is Havana Dreams Cigar Lounge. This bar is the perfect blend of elegance and casual.

You can sit back with a cigar and drink while watching one of their plasma TVs. Their premium cigars are excellent, and I recommend the La Flor with whatever beverage you prefer.


Harlem Cigar Room

3456 Broadway, New York, NY 10031
Phone: (212) 283-7272
Visit Website

Harlem Cigar Room is one of the most fun places to go out in West Harlem. There are plenty of hand-rolled cigars that you can purchase, and the best part is that it’s BYOB.

You can bring your favorite alcohol and sip it while you smoke their premium cigars. The atmosphere is a massive draw to the room.
