The store is a beautiful illustration of Davidoff’s global retail concept, which features a luxury environment and guest experience. 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.

Exclusive Interior Design
Each element of the space has been designed to evoke a sense of serene luxury. The lounge features custom furnishings from Walter Knoll Germany and Poltrona Frau.

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. Davidoff also commissioned former Davidoff Artist in Residence, Pascal Meccariello, to create a custom piece of art:“The Harvest,” which adorns the walls of the lounge.

Exclusive Cigar Edition
To commemorate the opening and to celebrate the new presence of ‘Davidoff of Geneva – since 1911’ Downtown, the company has commissioned “The NYC Downtown Exclusive” cigar, an elegant Belicoso format which begins with sweet notes of coffee, leather and some spice, leading to more intense notes of wood and sweet roasted nuts.

These complex flavor notes are complimented by a beautiful aroma of honey, wood and earth. The NYC Downtown Exclusive is only available at the Downtown store and will retail for approximately $25.00 per cigar or $250 for a box of 10.
