Davidoff Announces Opening of Cigar Lounge in Phoenix, AZ


Basel/Phoenix, May 12th, 2016 - Davidoff celebrates the opening of its newest lounge in Phoenix, AZ on May 19th, 2016. The Davidoff Lounge at Ambassador Fine Cigars will provide an upscale cigar sanctuary in the Phoenix / Scottsdale metro area.    

The 2,000 square feet Davidoff Lounge at Ambassador Fine Cigars was designed with the cigar connoisseur in mind.  The concept offers a selection of refined natural materials inspired by tobacco fields and the Dominican Republic. It delivers a warm brilliance and comfortable atmosphere to enhance the cigar experience. The engaging design of the lounge creates one large, seamless space connecting refined custom d├ęcor, architectural features, art, and a well-appointed conference room.
  
Jim Young, President of Davidoff of Geneva USA, comments: “We are delighted to announce the opening of the new Davidoff Lounge at Ambassador Fine Cigars in Phoenix, AZ. We are particularly excited to do this in partnership with Vartan Seferian who has been an outstanding Davidoff partner. Vartan embodies our standard of excellence building upon the legacy of Zino Davidoff.” 

Regarding the opening, owner Vartan Seferian commented, “Our partnership with Davidoff has resulted in a truly unique environment. I’m thrilled to provide my customers with a new opportunity to experience a lifestyle of time beautifully filled.”  

Distinctive architectural details in the lounge include a backlit 12’ slanted ceiling and a special commissioned art piece by the New York City duo URNY. The unique 3 dimensional art installation compliments the fusion of cigar pleasure and Arizona’s unique and spiritual landscape. All decorative elements give each Davidoff Lounge a recognizable stamp of quality and luxury.
