Bally's Selected as the Location For 1st Grand Havana Cigar Shop

LAS VEGAS -- Bally's Las Vegas will enhance its lineup of upscale retail shops with the addition of the first Grand Havana House of Cigars.

Grand Havana Enterprises, which operates its flagship property Grand Havana Room cigar club in Beverly Hills, Calif., entered into a lease with Bally's Las Vegas to establish its first retail venture.

Grand Havana House of Cigars will feature premium cigars, humidors and other cigar and smoking accessories.

Negotiations also are continuing for the establishment of additional Grand Havana House of Cigars ventures at other properties owned by Hilton Hotels, which acquired Bally Entertainment.

Grand Havana Enterprises said it plans to enter into other agreements for retail cigar shops in New York, Los Angeles and Washington.

In addition to developing retail cigar stores, Grand Havana Enterprises is expanding its cigar club concept.

The firm opened a second Grand Havana Room in Washington in March, and the company is scheduled to debut its third Grand Havana Room in New York this month.

The company also plans to establish its own cigar label for distribution in the U.S.
