Fox Business News senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino told Cigar Aficionado recently that The Grand Havana Room is “one of the best places” to meet Wall Street sources. We’ve been to the private cigar club located in the penthouse of 666 Fifth Avenue a few times before. It’s definitely a hot spot for those in high finance to relax and socialize with fellow members over cigars and drinks.
Of course, it’s not just Wall Streeters who frequent the place. Rev. Al Sharpton has also been spotted hanging out there, too.
Now let’s take a photo tour of this members-only cigar club.
The address is 666 5th Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Street. The other Grand Havana Room is in Beverly Hills.
The private cigar club is located on the 39th floor, which is the penthouse. The Top of The Sixes restaurant used to be the tenant there. People still call it 'Top of the Sixes', though.
You'll see this to the right of the entrance. Former Citigroup chair Richard 'Dick' Parsons serves as chairman of the board of governors for the Grand Havana Room. You can't see it, but he's name is on top of this placard.
Here we are inside. Those cases are full of cigars and accessories that members and their guests can buy.
You can relax and enjoy your cigar and drink, but if you have to, the club offers a business centre and a screening room to keep up with what's happening in the financial world.
The Grand Havana Room offers private suites where members could play a game of cards or backgammon. There are also gorgeous views of the city.
The club also offers an extensive selection of cigars for purchase.The club does not sell Cuban cigars
We couldn't find what the membership fee is exactly. An article in Cigar Aficionado from 1997 said for an individual there's a $3,000 one-time fee and it's $200 per month.
