nr. Driggs Ave.

Really awesome, relaxing place

This place might be on the small side, but it has a lot to offer. They have a sizable selection of ports and Scotch whiskeys, which go very, very well with their hand-rolled cigars, and the atmosphere makes it perfect for an after-work chill session or a pre- or post-dinner date. It feels a bit like a secret nook- always active but rarely crazy- and the staff make sure to address any questions or requests you might have. I highly recommend giving it a shot (even if you don't smoke).
