3 The Green Mill
Is there a better smokey combination than the sultry jazz sounds with a fine cigar? The Green Mill has a sophisticated informal, warm atmosphere steeped in the heady sounds of the early '30s and '40s; it was actually patterned after Clark Monroe's Uptown House in Harlem (as it was during the '40s).
