Our second stop for May will bring us to the unique Beekman Bar & Books. Located at 1st St & 50th St., this gem is tuck away very neatly. This is part of the Bar & Books threesome. If you have never visited one of them they are a little different. A very posh and elegant looking bar/lounge serving some of the best boubon and scotches around the world. This is a full service bar. The Beekman Bar & Books has a catch. It is actually a two section venue. In front is the beautiful bar surrounded by a lovely lounge. In the back of the place is a secured cigar room. You can only smoke in the back. The bar/lounge is 100% smoke free. If you are purchasing a drink in the bar, you must finish it there. You cannot bring any drinks to the cigar room. However, they do serve beer & wine there plus soda & water. There is food available at the bar/lounge. Please, they do have a standard dress code that is loosely enforce. Just dress neatly and avoid wearing sneakers. I do suggest to bring your own cigars here and take the cutting fee ( I believe it is still $5) Your guests are always welcome and over here if they are non smokers, they can stay in the lounge while you sneek in the back and enjoy a smoke. Come on down and you'll truly have a goodtime.
