I thoroughly enjoyed Club Macanudo for smoking a cigar. Their cigar and alcohol selection is superb, but the food my wife and I ordered was horribly overpriced and rather bland tasting. I ordered a NY strip (for $47) and it looked and tasted like a steak that should have been served for breakfast with eggs. For that price I would expect beef of a higher quality not some hunk of bland tasting leather. I also ordered a seafood cocktail with shrimp and crabmeat and the crabmeat was swimming in cocktail sauce and not very tasty. Service was good, staff was very friendly and the cigar I smoked was very fresh. If I go back to Club Macanudo it will be to smoke and cigar and have a drink.

Guys enjoyed cigars and all four of us enjoyed relaxing with drinks,music and fun atmosphere. Something different at a historic venue. Definitely recommend for all who enjoy cigars.

Club Macanudo was grandfathered in due to the fact that it was open when the first round of anti-smoking laws were passed, and that is the only reason that it is allowed to serve food. And the menu is not half-bad. When I was there the last time, I had the lamb chops and was very happy.

Of course, the main reason to go there is to smoke cigars in such a swank atmosphere. Just beware of the fact that it attracts hookers, so if you are a guy and some gal starts coming on to you, don't get too excited - she is probably a working girl.

If you got um, smoke them. At Club Macanudo on NFL draft night with Ray Lewis, Emitt Smith and Antoinr Bolden having cigars and drinks. Smoky and drinks, traditional and a NYC must. Make sure you expect second hand smoke!

Incredible selection of cigars and the look and feel is really cool. Worth a stop in as its a fun place to check out, but pricing was a little over the top. Sure that's intentional to keep the aura up and riff raff out, but not sure I'd go back other than to take someone to check it out.
