I went there once a few years ago on Christmas Eve while visiting NYC with my wife and son. $28 for a Macanudo Orange Inspirado (which was an underwhelming cigar), $32 for a double pour of Jack Daniels for my son, and I don’t remember how much for a couple of beers for my wife and me. It was only a few blocks from where were staying. If I stayed in the same area again, I’d pass on Club Macanudo. Hope it works out for the OP though.

Gentlemen, unfortunately, it's hard to find a place to smoke cigars in NYC. Most of us can't, or don't want to, smoke cigars in our apartments. Finding a nice place to have a drink and a stogie makes sense. And having a locker with your own cigars is much cheaper than buying them a la carte from the club. You can also smoke what you like that way. @lpferrante says he's an occasional smoker, so splitting a locker sounds like the way to go. Too bad this thread went off the rails. I hope we can all just forgive and forget.

There are small selection of lounges in the city. I prefer the more casual places like Blew Smoke, Harry’s, Soho or the Cave.
I bring a handful of my own smokes to pass around, buy one from their humidors and offer something special to the owner/manager. It always gets me a smile, conversation and maybe a complimentary beverage.
My favorite lounge around here is a place with a small humidor, leather chairs, a few card tables and lots of Italian and Polish guys telling stories and lies.
That’s my comfort zone.
I’m nobody to judge others.
Smoke where you like, like where you smoke.

Thanks for your help.
I was not mocking anyone, the Gurkha humor gets tossed around the forum almost weekly. I never knew I had low self esteem, thanks for making me aware.

If interested, check out the noobie sampler trade to get established and get some nice sticks.

I knew what you meant. Guys sipping top shelf scotch they don't like, smoking a 17$(actually 3$ online) gurkha and not enjoying it either. But hey look at me, it's all top shelf... lol

Sent from ... hey Jon, where's my damn sandwich

No need to respond. You’re not a nice person.


I would share a locker with you @Rondo, as I know you can take a joke.


On condition though, you must follow the instructions.
