Welcome to NYC Cigar Bars, a site dedicated to listing all the finest in New York cigar lounges. As the smoking bans have drastically limited the amount of bars that you can actually smoke, this site is here to tell you what places are still left and exempt from the ban. Most places provide a warm and kind air to all the smoke enthusiasts out there and we want to give you all the information on the best that New York has to offer. Each page has full descriptions plus location/contact information. Consider this your one stop shop for all of your cigar bar information needs.
Keep in mind that any cigar parlor that was open and operating before 2003 was deemed exempt from anti-smoking laws. And many of those establishments are not only still in existence, they are actually thriving and they are special enclaves for cigar lovers. Most of these venues provide a very pleasurable atmosphere that is unique and a chance to do something that you don't have the ability to do almost anywhere else in the city.
If you are new to the cigar bar scene, you will definitely want to either visit one of these venues with a seasoned veteran or talk to someone that works there to get the rules of the road so to speak. By that we mean abiding by what has become acceptable etiquette for behavior in a cigar bar. As with anything, these establishments do vary in style and quality from the simple to the more elegant and sophisticated bars. And don't forget to enjoy a drink along with your friends or feel free to make some new friends when you are there because they are known as exceptionally friendly places.
