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
