This lounge radiates old boys' club exclusivity; plush leather couches and chairs all face inward, so one step inside the tiny space (and past the requisite Indian chief) and you'll end up surrounded by stogie-chomping regulars in the midst of barbershop-esque conversation. Within the glass cases, you'll find boxes of all the popular brands—Churchill, Esplendido, and Toro—as well as intricate Velvet brand cutters and lighters. There's no alcohol, but we're guessing you came here to smoke, not get hammered.
