Beekman Bar and Books
New York, NY 10022-8005
Village Voice's Description
Dim lighting, a deep whiskey list, and a tucked-away cigar cave make Beekman Bar and Books a hidden treasure in Sutton Place. The back opens up into Max's Tobacco Shop where cigar aficionados can shop or light up in leather or zebra-printed chairs. Non-smokers can enjoy the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in the main whiskey bar, and snack on cheese and charcuterie platter or a plate of finger sandwiches. The prices are steep, but tasting flights are perfect for the connoisseur. --Jessica Goodman
Tips from foursquare
Winner of Best Whiskey Bar in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Get a flight, and hang in the backroom cigar bar!
A quiet and classy bar with an amazing selection of Scotch. Enjoy your drink while watching James Bond movies, and intermittently sneak off to the cigar room.
This place is known for the Scotch selection, but try the cocktails. They'll knock your socks off.
Bring a translator - barman's English was incomprehensible.
Try the Mint Julep. Just like the Kentucky Derby, with less horse shit on the floor.
