Order a drink and the barman does something odd: He offers you an ashtray. Yes, it’s a legal cigar bar. Beer glasses are frosted, martinis are shaken, and the selection of single-malt Scotches and cognacs is topflight. The celeb clientele has included Robert De Niro, Quentin Tarantino, Jessica Simpson and John Mayer (woo woo!).

Definitely a Mad Men-esque vibe for this cigar and scotch bar. The lights are dim, the drinks are strong, and the plumes of smoke permeate everything you're wearing. Worth checking out for a nightcap, or to impress an out of town friend, but be prepared to drop some coin for the top shelf (delicious) liquors and cocktails.
