The good folks of Empire Social Lounge sure know how to put the “Grand” in “Grand Opening” at their new sister location in Downtown Dadeland. The venue features a 1,000-square-foot members lounge, a dedicated whiskey bar with over 130 options to choose from and a walk-in humidor. Cocktails were provided by Haig Club Single Grain Whisky along with smokes from Oliva Cigars, who were also present. Local visual artists were invited to display their art such as Armando Colls, Victoria Zych, and some live painting from Cari Cartilla. In the act of combining art with cigars, Humidif Group provided ashtrays and lighters to get live painted on by local artist Laura Chirinos and are now displayed in the lounge.
