This is not the cheapest place in the world, but if you enjoy cigars and whisky then it's worth spoiling yourself. Once i'd ordered a very tasty Honduran cigar, 2 cocktails and 2 straight Rye's we'd already notched up a $100+ bill, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I guess that coming here from the UK I am not...

Sat down for a pre-dinner drink and was warmly welcomed by the regulars. Went back after dinner for a night cap and same regulars (and some newcomers) was still in place and just as nice and welcoming. If you love a nice drink and a good cigar to finish the evening with - go no further!

If these words pique your interest then go here. We enjoyed many bourbons with a couple of cigars, i recommend the maduro which at $20 is pretty reasonable. The selection of liquor and cocktails is just beyond anything i have seen before. My partner was drinking the red wine which was good and a decent amount too. We went on... More

The Hudson has just about everything that you'd hope for from a New York cafe. The breakfast baked goods--scones, croissants, etc. (no bagels) are all fresh and delicious. Deli and salad dishes for lunch are made downstairs. Espresso et al are first rate. We've had several wonderful conversations here with other customers who are from the neighborhood and love the...

What a pity. There aren't many places left that welcome us smokers! So maybe this place has got complacent. I had such high hopes. This place was recommended to me by friends and I went thinking it would be great. It's too small, the food was really sub par (not just a bit) and the waitress got properly snarly about... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
