New York City cigar staple Barclay-Rex is puffing its way into the Financial District.
Founded in Manhattan in 1910, the tobacconist will open a new shop at 126 Pearl Street, according to Crain’s. Currently, Barclay-Rex operates out of a temporary space located at 90 Water Street.
Owner Vincent Nastri III has signed a 20-year lease for the entire four-story building, according to Crain’s
The larger space will include a ground level cigar shop and a private smoking lounge on the second floor. The basement will be used for a late-night delivery service. The third and fourth floors will become apartments. [Crain’s] – Christopher Cameron
