Speakeasies have insured that New Yorkers enjoy stepping back in time once in a while, but for those looking for a different kind of night out, Soho Cigar Bar (formerly Circa Tabac) brings with it all of the 1920s nostalgia you’ve come to love, along with the addition of fine cigars.

Last night, New York’s oldest cigar bar and lounge celebrated its 20th anniversary, where general manager Michael Dounoulis (who is also the only certified cigar sommelier in New York) and owner Lee Ringelheim welcomed and entertained over 15o guests. Along with plenty of cigars to go around, guests enjoyed Old Fashioneds made with Hudson Whiskey, and also learned how cigars are made.

State-of-the-art ventilation adds to its appeal, along with Art Deco decor and flat screen TVs hidden behind art photography on the walls. In addition to their selection of cigars, they also have an array of cocktails, as well as wine, beer and spirits. You can spend hours here thanks to their food menu, which ranges from sharing dishes like edamame and spicy spinach dip to larger plates like croissant sandwiches and flatbread pizzas.

Guests of the anniversary party were not disappointed, taking home. swag bags filled with the best loot — Soho Cigar Bar merchandise, Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey shot glasses, Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky, Frey freshener, a stain removal kit from Madame Paulette and the latest issue of Cigar Aficionado magazine.
