New Davidoff Lounge Opens in New Jersey

The Davidoff branded lounge campaign continues to surge as the company plans to officially open its newest cigar oasis in the village of Ridgewood, New Jersey, on Thursday night.

The new lounge is 2,400 square feet of smoking luxury that incorporates modern design into a historical building erected in 1931. It is housed above Gary and Barbara Kolesaire's Tobacco Shop of Ridgewood, which has been selling cigars for 35 years.

Exposed brick walls and a natural skylight give the space a sense of tradition, while the recessed ceiling lights, accent track lighting and wall sconces provide a soothing warmth. Plush leather chairs, shapely coffee tables and a stunning natural gas fireplace add elegance and class.

Like the Davidoff lounge in San Antonio, the company commissioned artists Mike Baca and Fernando Romero of art collective UR New York to create a piece of art that captures the fusion of Davidoff with Ridgewood. The result is a 3-D wall sculpture that is a collage of cigar box woodburnings depicting cigar smoking and various images of New York city, which is about an hour-long car ride from Ridgewood.

 

Additionally, the lounge also features a private conference room with an Edison light chandelier hanging above the boardroom table. Multiple flatscreen televisions are situated throughout the lounge, as well as WiFi. Private memberships are available, and there are 100 humidified lockers for those who want to store their personal cigars.

The new lounge will also sell a lounge-exclusive cigar called the Davidoff Lounge. The blend for this special cigar is entirely Dominican, with the wrapper leaf grown in the Yamasá region of the island.
