If you’re a regular at Club Macanudo on the Upper East Side, you already know why we’re so excited that it is popping up at The Knickerbocker Hotel. The cigar bar and restaurant has one of the finest collections in town, and now it can be enjoyed with a colorful view. Opening July 7th, Club Macanudo at The Knick will be part of the hotel’s St. Cloud haute rooftop bar.
The popular St. Cloud lounge occupies 7,800 square feet of coveted indoor and outdoor rooftop space. Club Macanudo at The Knick will take over the outdoor section overlooking one of New York’s most iconic sites, Times Square. The hustle and character of the surrounding city will merely act as a backdrop for crafted cocktails and a fresh seasonal food menu developed by noted celebrity chef Charlie Palmer.
“The lounge will be branded with the new Club Macanudo At The Knick logo, and we have two beautiful, glass-front, wooden humidors. In total, the humidors will display more than 1,200 cigars,” Victoria McKee Jaworski, director of public relations, told Cigar Aficionado.
“We are very excited to kick off the rooftop season with our brand new partner and headliner Club Macanudo,” Shawn Hauver, managing director of The Knickerbocker said in a statement. “The brand and philosophy of Club Macanudo compliments The Knickerbocker’s ongoing reputation as an elegant haven for socializing, business networking and indulging in the very best that New York City has to offer.”
Vice president of marketing for General Cigar, Alan Wilner explained, “This is an exciting time for Club Macanudo. Having recently celebrated our 20th anniversary, and with the launch of our partnership with The Knickerbocker, we are uniquely positioned to share the brand’s passion for creating memorable moments and curated experiences with an even broader clientele.”
