It was a night of style, sophistication and elegance as the cream of Joburg’s social crowd headed to a new champagne and cigar venue in the city.
Pedro Portia Champagne And Cigar Lounge opened its doors at Cedar Square in Fourways to Joburg’s A-list celebrities, before it officially launched to the public on Friday, 4 November 2016. The upmarket establishment invited influencers such as Sophie Ndaba, Kgomotso Christopher, Stevel Marc, Keegan Martin, Bujy, Lexi Van Niekerk and Mandla Hlatshwayo to toast the grandeur of the elegant lounge – inspired by the world-famous cigar lounges of Cuba, Miami and New York.
Jozi’s hottest celebs arrived in droves, dressed to the nines, to join owners José and Pedro Ramos for an evening of decadence and bubbly at a truly fitting venue. Guests enjoyed the spectacular and premium surroundings at this one-of-a kind venue and were treated to sophisticated tapas-style meals selected from the venue’s menu, while cigar aficionados delighted in a selection of the world’s finest cigars including Cuban, Nicaraguan, Honduran, Dominican and Costa Rican, as well as several premium champagnes such as Prosecco and Cava.
What’s in the lounge?
A full bar service and tapas-style meals will be on offer to the sound of light music. The venue also boasts free Wi-Fi and a conference facility for 10 people with a private veranda, and a walk-in humidor to keep cigars at the highest quality possible. Thursday nights will see light jazz bands, while a selection of contemporary DJs will keep patrons entertained on Fridays and Saturdays. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served daily. Opening times are Sunday to Wednesday 9am to midnight, and Thursday to Saturday 9am – 2am
