he intimate underground setting of Stanza dei Sigari, an upscale cigar lounge and onetime speakeasy, offers plenty of plush leather seating, dark paneling, and quiet nooks for the relaxing and exotic art of smoking hookah, or water-filtered smoking, with friends after work or on the weekend. Hookah prices are about $25 for an hour. Prefer to light up a stogie? The humidor has a huge selection, though there is a cutting fee. Rineman



In the nation’s toughest restrictions of their kind, the city health commission voted to close the city’s hookah and cigar bars by 2019, though each will be allowed at that time to apply for a 10-year extension.
