Vincent Nastri then found his ideal location nearby, signing a 20-year lease for the entire four-story building at 126 Pearl Street. He would there build the most impressive cigar shop and lounge the Financial District had ever seen. Barclay Rex’s 100-year history stood alone in an industry that saw so many other shops open and close their doors over the years. The new location was a great opportunity to utilize a larger space to accommodate his patrons while welcoming new ones.
In this new location, the ground floor houses the tobacco shop, which offers many brands of hand-made pipes, such as Dunhill, Castello, Radice, and even pipes that Vince Nastri II made, along with a walk-in humidor that houses a wide selection of premium cigars, such as Padron, Davidoff, Ashton, and their very own signature cigar: The Y.O. by Yaxel Ortiz, a unique Nicaraguan cigar. Barclay Rex also sells a collection of accessories for the modern-day gentleman. The lower level has a lounge where Wall Street tycoons often come to kick back and have a smoke. Last month, Vincent was proud to announce a new addition for Barclay Rex: Rex New York; a beautiful and modern cigar club with humidified lockers for members on the 2nd floor that is open late 7 days a week!
