Cigar Club Mareva – Where Did It All Begin?
A man once dreamed of smoking fine cigars and engaging in gentlemanly conversation in a dimly lit room where he could enjoy the finest cigars. It was easy for him to imagine the dull red walls of his cigar club and how people from all over the world came to visit. As a result of great passion and ambition, Split has become one of the world's most popular cigar destinations.
Here is an insight into Cigar Club Mareva and its founder, who wrote history and gave his city another accolade.
Marko Bilić, the club's founder, chose Mareva after establishing the club and its humble beginnings. In Spanish, "Mareva" refers to the most popular type of cigarette. After arranging everything for the club, Mareva starts organizing cigar events and get-togethers in bars, restaurants, and cafeterias and attracts the first members.
As soon as the club becomes established, it becomes a part of many social events, such as the Croatia Boat Show in Split, the Julian Rachlin Music Festival in Dubrovnik, and many others. It is from that moment that Mareva begins her true journey.
Cigar Smoking World Championship
Marko Bilić, Mareva's president, surrounds himself with people who understand the value of Mareva and appreciate his work. A once-a-year international cigar festival, the Cigar Smoking World Championship, was born out of this idea.
By bringing together great people, Mareva creates a strong team, while at the same time, the club grows. Even the world's most influential cigar magazine ranks the Cigar Smoking World Championship festival as the fourth best cigar festival. Thus, it becomes a major promoter of Split and Croatia.
Mareva was constantly expanding its activities and organizing events in the most prestigious cigar clubs worldwide. However, there was one thing the club lacked - its "home." In four years, Marko Bilić provided the club with its own space in Split.
Cigar Club Mareva - The Hedonist’s Paradise
The opening of the club was attended by guests from all over the world. Mareva was also listed among the Top 10 Warmly Recommended World Cigar Lounges by the prestigious London magazine Four. Moreover, Mareva was nominated for the world's most prestigious cigar award - the Cigar Trophy, also known as the Cigar Oscar. As a result, it was confirmed that this Split club was indeed a miracle of its kind.
Mareva entered the TOP 5 cigar lounges in the world, ranking alongside the most famous clubs such as Amsterdam's La Casa del Habano, Indianapolis' Davidoff lounge, and Sofia's Cohiba Atmosphere. Despite being among the smallest, it proudly proves that even the smallest can succeed.
As an authentic promoter of our country, Cigar Club Mareva has also opened its doors in Tallinn, Estonia, within the beautiful setting of the D'Boiss Club Bespoke.
