Break free from NYC’s no-smoking policy and get lost in a tobacco haze at this Upper East Side lair. Fire up a cigarette or cigar (Padron Anniversario, Cohiba Robusto, Davidoff, Montecristo, Avo Xo Intermezzo and La Gloria Cubanos are ripe for picking) in the basement lounge. The smoking oasis also comes with décor that recalls an English gentlemen’s club (plush furniture, rich carpet, year-round fireplace) and makes patrons feel right at home while they sip on single-malt Scotch, bourbon or cognac and nosh on tuna tartar, truffle mac and cheese and chargrilled Kobe burgers. It’s like your dream living room—only better.
