Blend Bar announced their plans to open up a new venue in the Koppers Building located at 436 Seventh Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA in June 2016. The company announced that they recently signed a lease for approximately 5,000 square feet in the historic building to open up their “Blend Bar with Davidoff Cigars”.
After the opening of a second location in Nashville, TN last year in collaboration with Davidoff of Geneva USA, this will be the third lounge run by the Indianapolis based company. Their bar at 3981 E 82nd Street, IN had been nominated in the “Best Cigar Lounge 2015” category by Cigar Journal’s readers last year.
Commenting on the announcement, Corey Johnston stated “We are very excited about the opportunity to take our Blend concept to Pittsburgh. … Pittsburgh is an ideal market for our upscale cigar bar and lounge experience.”
“We will offer customers unparalleled selections of spirits, wine and cigars from around the world in a luxurious environment featuring a state-of-the-art ventilation system,” Johnston added. “Customers will enjoy their Blend experience free from the typical smoke filled surroundings found in most lounges.”
Blend Pittsburgh will offer a professionally designed, upscale cigar bar and lounge with high quality fabrics, leathers and wood surfaces, custom built premium furniture and a proprietary entertainment network. Offered cigars will include premium brands such as Davidoff, Fuente and Diamond Crown, as well as spirits such as Ultra Premium Fuzzy Vodka, Balvenie, Blanton’s, Pappy Van Winkle and Johnny Walker Odyssey. Additionally, Blend works with its cigar and spirits partners to offer rare blends that are handpicked and created specifically for Blend.
Blend is owned and operated by CKM Entertainment, LLC. Headquartered in Indianapolis, IN, CKM is a leading developer and operator of upscale cigar, spirit and social-friendly nightclubs throughout the United States. The Blend concept originated in Indianapolis, IN during 2013 and expanded to Nashville, TN in 2015. In October 2015, Blend announced a strategic partnership with Davidoff of Geneva USA. Blend will use the same materials as the current “Davidoff of Geneva – since 1911” global retail concept for the walk-in humidors, but retain the unique look and feel of a Blend Cigar Bar elsewhere throughout the venue. The new concept will prominently feature Davidoff of Geneva USA brands, in addition to other premium cigars. Patrons of Blend locations are offered premium cigars, spirits and wines in a social-friendly nightclub environment. For more information, visit www.blendbarcigar.com
