First trip...many more to come! 8/20/2010

I went to Mahogany on Walnut for the first time with a few friends from out of town. We had reservations but arrived early so we sat at the bar to start off. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable and made several recommendations. A cocktail waitress also stopped by to sell us cigars and she was able to decribe the details of every cigar on their menu. When out table was ready, we were so comfortable at the bar that we declined taking a seat. The atmosphere was great and the scotch selection was not like any I've seen in the city. I will definitely be returning here and recommend it to friends. more

Not for the "NORMAL CROWD" 11/30/2008

This place is like the last bastion for Cigar smokers (it is above Holts Cigar store). But if you want to get away from the Crowd come here. They have a nice selection of Cigars to smoke with your Beer AND they have Free Wi-Fi.\r \r When you go upstairs it is like you're walking into the OLD world it looks imposing, impressive in appearance; like a baronial mansion. The walls are dark mahogany and everyone's smoking a cigar.\r \r A saw a woman in a Fur coat smoking a cigar!\r \r -Al B. For more

Manager's Attitude Terrible! 11/13/2008

If you must be at a Cigar bar in Philly, you may choose to go here. But there are better smoking joints in Philly far more welcoming than Mahogany. I thought the exhaust system was not well designed and the upholstery a little too jaded. The scotch selection and the beers are good - the food is a few notches above bar-food-grade, but what ruined it all was the manager's attitude! He was completely inconsiderate and based on his attitude towards non-whites he is clearly prejudiced. He was absolutely not cool with the bartenders. Not a cool place for me at all.. more

cigar bar 11/13/2008

Its been a while since I've been to Mahogany. We stopped by for a drink one night. Its nice place to have a martini & a cigar. They have cigar lockers and leather chairs. Warm atmosphere. more

It's Alright. 10/28/2008

Wow, sure sounds to me that Management is trying to hide something. City Search is a place where people can share opinions good OR bad. I heard my buddy tell me he saw a cocktail waitress cry there once because her boss chewed her up in front of everyone. But I'll go back because it's the only place in Phily you can still smoke! Pros: Hot Girls and Smoking Cons: Over Priced and too many dudes more

My Happy Place 5/19/2008

Mahogany is one of my favorite places to go to after a long day in the office or for a quick afternoon drink on Saturday. I have to say that I am extremely disappointed that citysearch would allow a bitter vengeful employee such as fillygrl to post such an outrageous review. Pros: Service, Atmosphere, Drinks more

like a second home 5/19/2008

I don't know what my agony is talking about, other than that it looks like a former employee, not a customer wrote it. I have been a 3-5 night a week regular for about 3 years, and have never seen the management less than gracious with customers. The staff is always great, genuinely cares, and is extremely knowledgeable. The food is excellent, you can?t go wrong with anything on the menu, and the drink selection is fantastic. When in doubt order a dirty daddy and hope you have a ride home! Pros: Great drinks, cigars, and staff Cons: none! more

More like.... ""My Agony""!!!! 3/27/2008

Sure the idea is great, the setting is nice, and the staff (by staff I mean waitresses) are great.... but you can feel really uncomfortable by the management/ownership there. Not only did I overhear the owner yell at his staff in a very inappropriate way in front of customers- but later on over heard him talking trash about a customer he was just pretending to be nice to. It was a busy night and the staff were really trying hard to take care of everyone... but with someone always stepping on your toes and making you feel about an inch tall... no wonder things were all out of sort! Personally, I would never go back to a place where they treat staff and customers in such a manner!!! Pros: Friendly Waitresses Cons: Harsh and Demeaning Owner more

good pizza annd charcuterie plate 12/7/2006

My wife and I have been to Mahogany 3 or 4 times now, and it is my favorite bar in Philly. Warm, elegant atmosphere, a TV or 2 to watch the game, friendly service, quiet. I have never seen it too crowded, even on weekends. The pizza and charcuterie (meat an cheese) plate are both very good. Good for after work; most clients are dressed well. Pros: relatively quiet, food, drinks, atmosphere, no crowd scene Cons: a little on the expensive side; parking, of course more

User review by iphufoth 3/1/2006

What a GREAT place!!! Wanted to sip a drink and smoke a stoogie. However I didn't want to be in some smokey copy cat cigar bar. Great service!! Great food!! And they made the BEST expresso martini I ever had. Lovely staff of classy ladies and the biggest selection of single cigars you will find. If you are in Philadelphia you got to check this out. more

Best found secret in Philly 1/23/2006

Hands down Mahogany on Walnut is one of the best bars in city! After a long day at work I was able to sit in a plush couch with my girlfriend, relax and escape the hustle of Walnut street. Their friendly/knowledgeable staff attended to every need I had, while guiding us through their amazing selection spirits and wine. (I've never seen such a selection of liquor on a backbar.) With the help of the staff, I settled on a Aston Heritage paired with a Dows 1986 Vintage port...perfect. My girlfriend had the half bottle of Rex Hill Pinot Noir served in oversized glassware...could you ask for anything more? Well we did ask for more and topped of the night with a great Chocolate Creme Brulee and a Chocolate Hazelnut Tartufo. The owner, Tom Piazza even came over and personally welcomed us to his establishment. Truly a wonderful experience! more

There is NON better 1/9/2003

Places to smoke a cigar in the Rittenhouse Sq area are few and near non-existant. That's why I love this place. Open late, comfy seats, great atmosphere and frendly service. Best place to smoke a cigar while having a drink in Center City. Pros: Atmosphere, Convient Location more

Not just for the boys! 11/21/2002

What a wonderful place. I was at first hesitant about going to a cigar bar. I thought for sure that this a boys only thing. Well I was wrong! Mahagony is more than just a place for the boys to hang out and smoke cigars. The atmosphere is comfortable and warm. The staff is friendly and knowledgable with out being pretentious. I meet a group of my girlfriends there for happy hour a few weeks back and let's just say we can't wait to go back. It's a great change of pace from the noisy , over packed smokey bars... this is one of Philly's best kept secrets. Pros: comfortable seating Cons: parking more
