Casa de Montecristo Nashville has announced its grand opening party.

The store, which opened more than a month ago, will host events on July 21 and 22 at its storefront and bar. This is the third new Casa de Montecristo such store to get the two-day event treatment in the last year, following similar launches in Dallas and Austin.

What sets Casa de Montecristo Nashville apart is the store has a full liquor license, something the company is still trying to receive permits to do in Dallas and opted against in Austin. Technically, the Dallas store has its liquor license, but is unable to serve liquor and allowing smoking in the store.

The Nashville location is located at 600 Ninth Ave. in Nashville’s Gulch neighborhood.

“This new 3,200 sq. ft. lounge features a walk-in humidor, private patio space for 20 and a full bar,” said Steve Lochan, ceo of Casa de Montecristo, in a press release. The lounge will house more than 200 brands of premium cigars, including exclusive and hard to find selections. “We’re excited to bring Casa de Montecristo to such a vibrant and central Nashville neighborhood. This will be a great fit for us.”

Casa de Montecristo is a division of Tabacalera USA, which also owns Altadis U.S.A. and JR Cigar. The company has opened a variety of new stores, including both corporate-owned stores like Nashville, as well as franchise locations.
