Mr. Refined presented its inaugural event this week, Gentleman’s Night Out, featuring cigar tasting. The event was hosted at The Cigar Inn located in Midtown Manhattan. Hendrick’s Gin curated signature cocktails that were refined, bold, and smooth. The names of the cocktails set the tone for the evening: Gentleman & A Scholar, Blazer No Tie, A Gentleman’s Dream, and Harlem Knight. A Gentleman’s Dream was the favorite drink of the night, which included Monkey Shoulder—a blended malt Scotch—with lemon, honey, and ginger. Although dubbed Gentleman’s Night Out, refined women graced the space. Cigar neophytes and aficionados enjoyed a night of savoring various cigars (light, medium, bold, and flavored) while sipping and networking. Attendees included designers Kells Barnett and Louis Johnson of Harlem Haberdashery, actor Jamal Thomas, stylist Raven Roberts, and Chad Roberson, President of the New York Urban League Young Professionals.
