There are three Bar and Books locations in New York, with two more in Prague and Warsaw. They are among the most unique places to smoke in town. Their library-and-monkeys-themed decor is surprisingly elegant and feels like it makes perfect sense from the moment you walk in. The monkeys will put your heart at ease, but if you need more there’s always the full bar...
“You can see at all our locations, if you go to any of our locations, you’ll see all these monkey wallpapers, chandeliers, lamps,” said manager RJ, adding with a chuckle that he doesn’t know exactly what the deal with the monkeys is.
