Romania’s La Casa del Habano Celebrates its Tenth Anniversary




With an authentic Cuban night dedicated to the fascinating Habano realm, the Bucharest-based La Casa del Habano recently celebrated its tenth anniversary with a function held at the Athenee Palace Hilton Hotel.


Some boldface names of the Romanian society gathered at Athenee Palace Hilton’s Le Diplomat Hall, which became a part of Cuba for a few hours, with traditional food, cocktails, drinks, music and, of course, Habanos that were tasted by over 150 Habanos friends and guests attending the party.


The gala dinner was jointly organized by Mr. Wael El Ghadban, general manager of International Brands –the only certified importer and distributor of Habanos S.A. in Romania- and Jad Rahal, general manager of El Único, a luxury Habano store network.


Last but not least, the presence of Javier Terres de Ercilla, vice president of Habanos S.A., backed up the development of the Habano culture in Romania.


The gala dinner was also attended by Mrs. Nieves Ileana Hernández, ambassadress-at-large of the Republic of Cuba to Romania, and a staunch supporter of the actions undertaken by Cuba’s international brands, such as Habanos S.A., in Romania.
