E-Cigarette Lounge Opens in Fairfield
Vapor Tasting Bar and Lounge promotes healthier, more sophisticated smoking
Sovereign Vapors co-owners Anthony Holdampf and Marcos Garcia are on a mission to “expose smokers to a cleaner alternative to the cigarette and to cultivate and educate those new to ‘vaping” transforming them into ‘sophisticated vapers’ as they revamp the electronic cigarette experience from being that of a convenience store one, to that of a refined, sophisticated experience in this handsome 1700 s/f loft style lounge.
“We’re looking forward to raising the bar in vaping and bringing it to a more educational experience,” said Garcia.
The electronic cigarette was invented in the 1960’s (patent by H.A.Gilbert in 1965) however didn’t take off until about decade ago. The Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association now estimates that approximately four million Americans use these battery operated nicotine inhalers. They are made up of a rechargeable lithium battery, a cartomizer cartridge, and an LED that lights up at the end, with each puff. The cartomizer is filled with an e-liquid (which typically contains the chemical propylene glycol), nicotine, flavoring and additives. A heating element boils the e-liquid until it produces a vapor.
Nicotine content: Ranges from 0 milligrams (nicotine free) to 36 milligrams.
Sovereign Vapors carries nicotine free, light (6 milligrams), medium (12 milligrams), and maximum (18 milligrams). Menthol is also offered. For former smokers, “Vaping is a healthy alternative to smoking. Think of how many lives could have been saved,” continued Garcia.
There is a "liquid" menu that provides a wide variety of flavors for customers.
Hundreds of beginners to advanced devices with interchangeable accessories are available for both men and women, as are rare collectibles, customized and embellished items. Customers can hand build their own devices at the ‘re-buildable station’ within and free Wi-Fi is available. Starter kits are sold and include; a battery, a tank/cartomizer, a charger, a case and a refill bottle. Prices start at $25
“The whole idea is to bring this main stream, people need to quit smoking and the goal of this is to create an environment where people feel comfortable and where people can share information, a clubhouse for vaping,” said Garcia. “All our liquids are made in the U.S.A. in labs to the highest standards and FDA compliance rules.”
“We are happy to be in Fairfield and are looking forward to being a part of the community,” agreed the duo.
