PhotoBlog: Cioppino Cigar Bar

Cioppino is an upscale seafood and steakhouse located in the upper strip district area, on the Railroad Ave side of Right By Nature building. One feature that sets this restaurant apart from many of its competitors is that it offers a restaurants, bar and cigar bar. While many restaurants that allow smoking don’t allow cigar smoking, Cioppino embraces the cigar crowd offering a closed, well ventilated room for aficionados to drink some high-class drinks and smoke their stogies. In the cigar room, you also have the option of ordering from the restaurant menu or bar menu. This PhotoBlog features items from the bar menu.
