I was looking at the website and it has so many Chowhound requests ...
- late nite dining (till 1 am) ... and near Union Square
- happy hour
- Outdoor seating ... (ok, that's where the smoking happens, not indoors)
- live music
- pool table
- fish tacos
- hot wings
- even a cubano sandwich (sort of)
Do they have tv's? Could this possibly be a sports bar?
The tortilla chips are made fresh in-house and free during happy hour
Looking good from the menu Garlic-Herb or Harissa Fries
From the ONLY real link about it ... It closed and reopend in 2005 so any post prior to that would be null and void opinion-wise ...
"Cigar Bar was one of the first to find and successfully exploit the ownership loophole in the (smoking) statute and has had a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs. Through it all, including defections and ownership changes, it has remained one of the very best places to enjoy the simple pleasures of a fine cigar and beverage. I still hold that they make one of the best mojitos in the city and that their courtyard remains an oasis of serenity within the big city, esqpecially when the weather warms. They have live music on the weekends and can be a bit crowded, but they also have a good amount of space and a nice pool room in the very back.
Any thoughts about the place?
