Escape from the city's tobacco-free zones and puff unrepentantly on one of one hundred types of cigarettes offered here, formerly Circa Tabac, from German Shepheard's Hotel to British Dunhills. In your other hand, clutch a highball the size of a refillable soft drink. As the place fills up (with both smoke and bodies), jazz and hip-hop drown out the air purifiers, and the faint whiff of some wackier tobacky might filter through the room. The menu offers intriguing, if culturally confused, nosh—filet mignon en croissant and pigs in a blanket?—but with cancer sticks running $15–$16 per pack on average, you may want to suppress your appetite.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
