Miami’s Empire Social Cigar Lounge Opening Third Location in Ft. Lauderdale

September 12, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco



Ft. Lauderdale, Florida is ready to welcome Miami’s Empire Social Lounge with their third location in Las Olas. Located a block away from the vibrant Las Olas Boulevard at 350 SE 2nd Street Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301, Proprietors Jason Reznik, Ryan Leeds, and Peter Berntsen are looking to bring their version of “Sophisticated Relaxation” to Fort Lauderdale. Empire Social Lounge Las Olas will join the award-winning Brickell and Downtown Dadeland sister locations.

Empire Social Lounge is known as the premier cigar and whiskey lounge in South Florida. Both Brickell and Downtown Dadeland locations combined have won various awards to include “Best Cigar Lounge in the Nation” by Cigar & Leisure Magazine and 4 times been named “Best Cigar Lounge in Miami” by the Miami New Times.  The brand is known for 5-star service, extensive inventory of super premium spirits, carefully curated cigar humidor, private membership program, and for its sophisticated atmosphere. The Empire Social Lounge Las Olas location will feature the above-mentioned elements, but it was felt that this location had to bring something a little different.



The proprietors felt it was time to raise the ante and brought in respected Italian architect Antonio Ventimiglia of the SM20 firm, based in Milan and New York, will add extra panache to the already sophisticated Empire Social Lounge brand. Steps from Ft. Lauderdale Beach, guests can enjoy the salty beach air and the energy of Las Olas Boulevard, as Empire Social Lounge Las Olas will boast a comfortable outdoor lounge.

Empire Social Lounge Las Olas will feature the same state-of-the-art-a air control system used by the Brickell and Downtown Dadeland locations. This innovative A/C replaces 100 percent of the air constantly to provide an environment which will curb smoke and create a comfortable environment for patrons.


Featuring two locations in Miami and soon to be open third location in Fort. Lauderdale, Empire Social Lounge ushered in a new way to engage those who enjoy sophisticated experiences. Empire Social Lounge features premium cigars, fine & rare spirits, fine wines, and world class entertainment while boasting a state-of-the-art air control system, ensuring a comfortable smoke-friendly environment.
