Established in 1993, Beekman Bar and Books was the second of the growing Bar and Books family and also spearheaded the mid. 90´s cigar trend prior to approximately 50 cigar bars opening in New York City by 1996. Beekman Bar and Books hosted the first all womens cigar smoker in New York City history. Exclusively at Beekman is MAX'S TOBACCO SHOP, located in the rear of the bar. We invite you to enjoy your whisky and cocktails in Beekman's non-smoking environment while having the option of escaping to MAX'S for a relaxing smoke in a refined ambiance. MAX'S offers a well-edited selection of tobacco products ranging from fine cigars to luxury cigarettes.
