Brookfield Place – a luxury shopping destination alongside the Hudson River in the Financial District, is now home to Davidoff‘s most prestigious flagship store and lounge in Downtown Manhattan. Davidoff of Geneva – since 1911 Downtown New York City occupies a spectacular 2000 square feet.
Guests are ushered into a premium cigar retail space, flanked by a walk-in humidor and luxury lounge. Private lockers are also available for lease by customers looking to store their personal collections.
Dominican Artist Pascal Meccariello, who took part in the company’s philanthropic program the Davidoff Art Initiative, created a bespoke art installation which is displayed in the lounge. Entitled “The Harvest”, the one of a kind collage celebrates the tobacco leaf. A visual centerpiece in the lounge is a chandelier created by Ontwerpduo called “Light Forest,” designed to reflect the tropical flowers found in the Dominican Republic. Walter Knoll Germany and Poltrona Frau designed the custom lounge furnishings.
“The new Davidoff Flagship Store in downtown New York marks the culmination of an ambitious new direction for Davidoff which brings our philosophy of ‘Time Beautifully Filled’ to life. From the expertise of the craft to the enjoyment of our products, this third Davidoff Flagship Store in New York will provide the ultimate luxury cigar experience to all who visit,” said Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard, CEO and board member of Oettinger Davidoff AG.
“Our mission is to delight and surprise our consumers both here in the US and worldwide by delivering unique brands and unrivalled retail experiences,” said Jim Young, President Davidoff of Geneva USA. “Our Downtown New York Store is an exceptional addition to our portfolio of six luxury properties, including two others here in New York, and luxury cigar stores and lounges in Atlanta, Las Vegas and our US home town Tampa, Florida.”
“The Downtown NYC Exclusive” cigar
To commemorate the opening and to celebrate the new presence of “Davidoff of Geneva – since 1911″ in downtown New York, the company has commissioned “The Downtown NYC Exclusive” cigar — an elegant and well-balanced cigar with an enjoyable creamy finish and a delicate sweet aroma filled with notes of roasted nuts and honey.
