AMADIZ CIGARS is located on 470 City Island Avenue just on the left hand side and acress from Seafood City. This City Island tobacco shop is the only local cigar lounge and it also offers a savory selection of premium and hand rolled cigars. If interested, you can actually watch the cigars being made right there in front of your eyes.

AMADIZ specializes in Dominican cigars and a portion of their premium selections are from Nicaragua and Honduras. They also sell flavored cigars like vanilla, cherry, etc. for beginners and some of the ladies.

The leather chairs are "seasoned" but also takes a beating from the salty sandy air. The clientele varies from university professors to law enforcement agents, who come to smoke, watch television, but their floor has a capacity of 30+ people. No big offers or sales on bundles, just face value.

But like most city island visitors who enjoy seafood or the drinks, if you are a cigar aficionado, you will be pleased with this selection.

A unique and legendary experience for all New Yorkers....
