    TRUTH BE TOLD :::::::: I DO NOT LIKE TO WRITE A REVIEW LIKE THIS. As an advid cigar smoker who has been around the country and has even owned my own cigar bar and lounge. THIS PLACE HAS GOTTA BE THE WORST. I love to hang out with people… Read more »

    If celebrating with a cigar is your thing--or not--Nicky Blaine's has fantastic atmosphere! Always good music, great to take a bigger group and just chill in your own corner! Cigar menus are fun to look through even if you don't partake. … Read more »

    I will never forget the vicious management and bartenders. However, if you like a great look, great selection, you'd be happy. Be very careful not to complain to the manager about the staff, you will receive retribution and they will… Read more »

    My buddies come in for the race every year. This is the third year we've come to Nicky Blaines. We've had a great time in the past and this year was no exception.\r I love coming in for a cigar and drinks. Looks like this is becoming a… Read more »

    It is unfortunate when you frequent an establishment and grow to know what to expect from it, and then it lets you down. I love going to Nicky Blaine's but lately it's become more of a hassle than it's worth. Reading the reviews on here… Read more »

    To those of you who have read the previous review titled horrible service/horrible staff...I would like to give an more accurate account of that evening. Mr. Clark and his party were informed of our policy of all parties of 6 or more be on… Read more »

    I just moved from Las Vegas,NV. I asked some of my new co-works where I could go for a drink, and cigar. They told me to check out Nicky Blaine's. As I walked down the stairs, I was a little worried where they sent me. Then as I open the… Read more »

    My husband and I were in last weekend and I absolutely adore the place. We sat at one of the beautiful leather couches tucked away in the corner. Our server was great, she was attentive and charming. The drinks we had were fairly priced… Read more »

    Since another reviewer chose to refute the negative comment below his or hers, let me assure you, this story (though it seems totally unbelievable) IS true. I was there...\r I've been to Nicky Blaine's exactly four times in my entire life.… Read more »

    We love Nicky Blaines. By far the nicest club in town . Look at the dates on the previous two reviews. Must be a disgruntled employee ,as they both sound the same and are the same date. Go to Nickies and see for yourself . The place is… Read more »

    Nicky Blaine's is well known, and pretty well reviewed online. The selection of martinis, scotch, and cigars is great. And, the lounge has a classy feel. Nevertheless, many of my friends who live in Indy told me to stay away from the… Read more »

    I just went there last week. The barstaff and bouncers were nice and accomodating. The bathrooms were cleaned and stocked. We were even given a mini tour and welcomed back. Very nice, wished I would have went sooner. Read more »

    I had not been to Nicky Blaines since it had moved across the street. I wish that I had gone sooner, what a great place to hang out with friends! Aside from the obvious smoke [it IS a cigar bar] I enjoyed the overall ambience, I forgot… Read more »

    Walked in with 2 friends @ approximately 10:30 on March 2. The doorman asked us for the $5 cover charge and I said, "Wow, $5 to get in here?" He replied, "It keeps out the riff raff." I said yeah right and he said, "I bet if I kissed you… Read more »

    Has anyone figured out what happened to Joel and Jeff? Did they open their own frat house? Reality finally set in? Read more »

    Martinis in a dark, relaxed atmosphere. There is always cozy corner to listen to your friends or jazz. Read more »

    We are at Nicky Blaines and we think the club is much better now Jeff and Amy are gone. The club is much friendlier and much cleaner. The very best thing to happen there is the owner taking over the place. He operates it like a business… Read more »

    I WAS SITTING AT THE BAR BY MYSELF AT NICKY'S. IT WASN'T AS CROWDED AS IT USE TO BE AFTER WORK, THERE WAS ONLY MAYBE FIVE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE WHOLE PLACE. THESE TWO MEN WERE SITTING AT THE BAR AND THE OWNER CAME OVER TO LIGHT THEIR… Read more »
