When I walked into the bathroom, I noticed the wall paper had a fake-bookcase look to it, and one of the books said 'Karl Marx', where someone had crossed out Marx in sharpie and wrote Lagerfeld. I knew this was the place. The cigar selection is fair (though the prices a bit inflated) but the drinks are GREAT. Get the mint julep when spring rolls around.

Love this place

This place is cozy and I love the Bond themed drinks. What the review posted by Yaw doesn't seem to take into account is that it is a cigar bar! There will be smoke if you go there... To review a cigar bar poorly just because people are smoking is like reviewing a bakery poorly because it smells like sugar , well it's a bakery if you don't like sugar don't go. I love this place and highly recommend it. If you go get a Vesper!!

The Other Gentleman's Club

As you sit surrounded by a myriad of books you begin to feel a bit philosophical, and misunderstood. The place is a neighborhood upscale bar for men who like to smoke cigars and enjoy the company of other men. Don't go there seeking to meet women. Overall, great place to hang out with your friends and other locals.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
