Empire Social Lounge, located in South Miami’s downtown Dadeland, has officially opened. Proprietors Jason Reznik, Ryan Leeds and Peter Bernsten–the same team behind Prime Cigar Bar–have once again joined forces to bring the same “sophisticated relaxation” to Empire Social Lounge.
“Sophisticated Relaxation” is the motto and foundation of Empire Social and Prime Cigars’ founders Reznik and Leeds. The motto was embraced by patrons of the Prime Cigar Boca Raton and the second location, Casa de Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar in Brickell-Miami. The success of these two locations led to a demand that spawned Empire Social Lounge.
Empire Social Lounge features a sophisticated lounge area, a walk-in humidor, a full bar stocked with rare and hard to find whiskeys, a member’s lounge and patio. Custom furniture and design elements were chosen to appeal to cigar smokers and those patrons in search of a unique experience, rare whiskey, craft cocktails, or a nightcap. Empire Social also has a state-of-the-art air control system that will replace 100 percent of the air constantly to provide for an environment that will curb smoke and create a comfortable environment for patrons.
Since it is opening during the COVID-19 pandemic, Empire Social Lounge is adhering to all CDC guidelines, including social distancing. Empire Social Lounge is located in Downtown Dadeland at 8955 Dadeland Blvd #D-170, Miami, Florida 33156. Hours of operation are Sunday – Saturday, noon until close.
