Casa Fuente Opens in Vegas
Posted: June 6, 2005
With a little help from Andy Garcia and Arturo Sandoval, the Fuente family celebrated the grand opening of Casa Fuente, an all-Fuente cigar store and bar in the Forum Shops at Caesars on the Las Vegas Strip, on June 2.
Sandoval, the trumpet-playing legend, took the stage with actor Garcia, who lent a hand on conga drums at the after-party at Pur nightclub.
Casa Fuente is a joint project between Tabacalera A. Fuente, Ashton and FreyBoy Tobacco. The store stocks only Fuente-made cigars, including Fuente Fuente OpusX, Arturo Fuente Don Carlos, Ashton VSG and Diamond Crown cigars. The rarest cigars, including some that were previously released only for charity dinners and as personal gifts, are secluded in a vault in the back.
The shop also has a house cigar, called Casa Fuente, that will be sold only at the store. In addition, the store has a bar with a style reminiscent of Cuba's El Floridita, and a patio for smokers that can seat up to 65.
"This is an incredible showcase for the Fuente family and we take great pride in operating a cigar shop under their name," said Michael Frey, of FreyBoy Tobacco.
