The newest Atabey Cigar lounge opens with Ambassador Fine Cigars, a distinguished purveyor of fine cigars and accessories for over 25 years. The opening of the new Atabey Lounge in Peoria, Arizona becomes the fourth branded lounge for United Cigars. This luxurious 1,200 square foot lounge, situated at Ambassador Fine Cigars‘ second location in Peoria, promises to be a haven for cigar aficionados seeking an unparalleled experience.

Ambassador Fine Cigars collaborated with United Cigars in 2021 to celebrate their 25th Anniversary with a customized Limited-Edition humidor created by Nelson Alfonso of Selected Tobacco. The humidor was filled with a selection from the Selected Tobacco portfolio featuring 40 premium cigars. Limited to just 200 units, this collector’s item pays tribute to the legacy of Ambassador Fine Cigars and the passion for exceptional cigars.

Owner Vartan Seferian expressed his excitement about the collaboration with United Cigars, stating, “We are thrilled to bring the Atabey Lounge experience to Peoria, AZ. The collaboration with United Cigars for our 25th Anniversary Limited Edition humidor was a testament to our commitment to providing the finest cigars, and now we are creating a unique haven for cigar enthusiasts.”

The Atabey Lounge will offer a sophisticated and inviting atmosphere where members and guests can savor the finest cigars and some exclusive lines from United Cigars as well. A well-stocked bar with a selection of top-shelf spirits will await guests along with a knowledgeable and attentive staff to enhance the overall experience.

“The Atabey Lounge will mirror the persona of a man that is respected throughout the industry for his innovation and romance for the leaf. Vartan has never wavered, and our conversations for this partnership began from our first trip to Havana together in 2018,” said Oliver Nivaud, Director of Operations for United Cigars.

A grand opening event has not been scheduled yet but promises to be an evening of celebration, featuring exclusive cigar tastings, live entertainment, and an opportunity to meet with Nelson Alfonso of Selected Tobacco and Oliver Nivaud of United Cigars. The Atabey Lounge aims to become a destination for those who appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship of premium cigars.
