Davidoff of Geneva USA Reveals New Destination Boutique on the Las Vegas Strip
Basel/Las Vegas, May 2015 – Davidoff of Geneva USA will expand its footprint on the Las Vegas strip with a new “Davidoff of Geneva – since 1911” Licensed Boutique & Cigar Bar in late 2015. While Las Vegas is home to multiple Davidoff of Geneva boutiques, the new location will create a destination for cigar aficionados. The 1,500 square foot store features a unique indoor/outdoor environment, comprised of a walk-in humidor filled with premium cigars, and a unique full service premium bar. The bar area will open up with breakaway doors to a 50 seat outdoor patio with unparalleled views of the Las Vegas strip.
Situated in Fashion Show Mall, the new location is surrounded by the Wynn, Encore, Venetian, Palazzo and Treasure Island properties. This will be the company’s seventh licensed boutique store in Las Vegas, NV in partnership with the Arcella family, who successfully own locations in The Grand Canal Shoppes, Venetian, Palazzo, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino and Paris Resort.
Jim Young, President of Davidoff of Geneva USA, comments: “We are delighted to announce the opening of a new “Davidoff of Geneva – since 1911” store in Las Vegas. We are particularly excited to do this in partnership with Matt and Frank Arcella who have been outstanding Davidoff partners for many years. They have a proven track record in providing consumers with a premium retail experience in the casino and hotel environment and this will be a natural extension of that experience through the inclusion of a premium bar within the premises in a terrific location on the Las Vegas strip.”
“The “Davidoff of Geneva – since 1911” Cigar Bar will carry a full line of premium cigars for the traveling connoisseur and specialize in limited edition cigars to pair with the unique liquor selection,” says Matt Arcella, Managing Partner of Calabrini, LLC. “The ambiance and setting will be sophisticated yet unpretentious. In addition to bringing the pleasure of Davidoff to the dedicated cigar aficionado, we will also introduce Davidoff to a wider audience. Las Vegas is attracting a growing number of young and affluent consumers who come here for the phenomenal clubs, restaurants and shopping; not just to gamble. With our state of the art ventilation, lighting and music, we anticipate catering to this large demographic”
Fashion Show Mall, the city’s largest retail destination, is undertaking it’s own expansion this year, welcoming an additional 30 stores in 2015 in its nearly 2 million square foot space. With daily foot traffic of 50,000 people per day, the new expansion will create a new ‘front door’ facing Las Vegas Blvd, where the new Davidoff of Geneva Cigar Bar will reside along with high-end restaurants and other unique concepts.
