Smoke Lounge’s historic two-story, all-brick building shelters a lounge of delectable eats, a bar boasting myriad libations, and a walk-in humidor lined with fine cigars ready for awaiting lighters. Prepuff, visitors nosh their way through plates of Italian eats including fried calamari tossed with hot peppers in champagne garlic-butter cream sauce ($9.95) or paninis stuffed with imported Parma prosciutto and homemade mozzarella ($9.95). A bevy of beverages, bottled beers, and liquors intermingles with after-dinner cigars, including stogies from such tobacco wranglers as Rocky Patel, Magna, and Arturo Fuente, easing visitors through smoky exhalations. Smoke Lounge’s ventilation system captures smoke as soon as it leaves visiting lips, spiriting it out of the restaurant and into its new job as a mystery additive in ’80s music videos.
Visitors can drape themselves within a lounge lined with six 42-inch flat-screen TVs, or seek the freshest air with deck and outside-patio seating. Live DJs spin energetic tunes after 10 p.m. Wednesday–Sunday and teach artists how to fold rolling papers into origami animals on their days off.
