Owner Mike Cafango gives you a personal look at the Tobacconist of Greenwich and its Davidoff Lounge. Cafango is the 2015 Davidoff Golden Band Award winner for Davidoff Appointed Merchant of the Year.
On what you can expect from the store as a new and returning customer:
“A new client can expect my guarantee that anything he or she buys is kept in the most ideal and proper conditions. We back everything we sell. I embrace new business and new relationships because my relationships with my clients often prove to blossom into either great conversation or great friendships.”
The store’s motto:
“Where Elegance Meets Perfection.”
On what sets the store’s lounge apart from others:
“Our lounge is a one-of-a-kind place. We offer incredible ventilation, high-speed Internet, a 2,600-square-foot smoking space, a private smoking country club experience, and tasteful design elements with nods to France, Switzerland, Italy, and the United States. I tell our clients and members that the lounge is your blank canvas. We can accommodate any request you may have, and we always execute our members’ requests above and beyond their expectations.”
On what he’s learned from working with Davidoff:
“I have learned that they stand behind what they say. Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard, Jim Young, Tom Ryhiner, Johan Zwaan, Courtney Connelly, Richie Krutick—these people are the best people in the world to work with. I truly feel their enthusiasm through their commitment to their retailers. They aren’t out to make the most money when they release something. They are out to make the most money the right way, the traditional way, the smart way–through storefronts and brick and mortar. Davidoff is the classiest cigar company in the business.”
On the most popular cigars sold in the store:
“The most popular cigar in my store is probably Davidoff’s Royal Salomones and Royal Robusto: two of the best cigars in the world without a doubt!”
