Sovereign Vapor Loft opens May 10 in Fairfield

Sovereign Vapors Loft, described as Connecticut’s first high end “Vape” store, will host its grand opening at 1981 Post Road, above Robek’s, Saturday, May 10, with specials all day and music from 8 p.m. to midnight.

The store, specializing in e-cigarettes and other “vaping” devices, is owned by Anthony Holdampf of Fairfield and Marcos Garcia of Jersey City, N.J. Holdampf was co-founder of Freestyle Fitness in Westport and Greenwich Gold buyers in Greenwich and Trumbull. Garcia, known as “Chico Mann” to his followers, is a musician, both as a soloist and vocalist for the Afrobeat band Antibalas.

“Our mission is to expose smokers to a cleaner alternative to the cigarette and cultivate and educate those new to vaping into sophisticated vapors taking the experience away from gas stations, convenient store and conventional storefronts into a mature lifestyle experience,” Holdampf said in a press release.

Sovereign Vapors is situated on the second floor of an industrial loft space boasting vaulted ceilings, large oversized windows, exposed brick, reclaimed barnwood, distressed café tables with raw gunmetal accents, a lounge area and a marble vapor tasting bar.

“We approach our lines of vapor liquid similar to that of a wine tasting bar or micro brewery,” Garcia said in a release. “We’ve cultivated our line of liquids by sampling thousands of flavors from hundreds of companies from around the country. We’ve chosen our liquids based on the quality of the ingredients, the complexity of the flavor profile, and those companies using only the highest manufacturing standards. We’re looking for something that can entertain the pallet for hours. One example, is Castle Long by Five Pawns a company out of California it’s a combination of the dark, refined spirit of Kentucky Bourbon, accented with toasted coconut, roasted almond, Madagascar vanilla bean and laced with a caramelized brown sugar.”

Sovereign Vapors carry a large selection of liquids and hardware both for the beginner and advanced Vaper. The hardware or nicotine delivery devices range from $25 for the beginner to $375 for more advanced delivery systems, the liquids range from $8 for 10 ml to $28 for 30 ml. The liquids come in varying nicotine strengths from 0 to 18 mg.

E-cigarettes and other “vaping” devices generated nearly $2 billion in sales in 2013. Citibank projected sales to reach $3 billion by 2015, while Wells Fargo expects sales to top $10 billion by 2017. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently proposed new laws on labeling, packaging and rules banning the sale of e-cigarettes to minors.

Sovereign Vapors does not sell to anyone under the age of 18.
