Indianapolis-based CKM Entertainment LLC is expanding its BLEND Bar Cigar brand. The company has announced a new BLEND bar location will open in Pittsburgh.
The company recently signed a lease for approximately 5,000 square feet of space in Pittsburgh. The first BLEND bar opened in Indianapolis in 2013 and CKM expanded the brand into Nashville, Tennessee last year.
"We are very excited about the opportunity to take our BLEND concept to Pittsburgh," said Corey Johnston, president of CKM Entertainment. "We have found an excellent partner in Rugby Realty to work with in making this happen. Pittsburgh is an ideal market for our upscale cigar bar and lounge experience."
BLEND was recently named one of five finalists for "Best Cigar Lounge in the World" by Cigar Journal magazine. CKM says it has plans to expand into more markets in the future.
