    The Cigar Divan at La Bodeguita del Medio

    It's been several years since I was in there and may have changed. The room was lined with leather couches. Note that it's a smoking lounge.

      thanks i had looked at that and am a bit afraid the cigar smoke might bother them- i dont mind cafe or bar or wine bar or lounge, just comfy seating- not about the food or drink at all...

      Zombie Runner does. It's a specialty sporting goods store but most people seem to go there for the coffee.

        thanks, looked at that too- it closes very early. I forgot to mention it needs to be open minimum til 9pm preferably later... too many constrictions I know...
        i am toying with the idea of cafe brioche and just order coffee...
