Sundance Square to bring Silver Leaf Cigar
Bar to Entertainment District

FORT WORTH, Texas (June 19, 2013) – Sundance Square, downtown Fort Worth’s 35-block entertainment, shopping, and office development, has nearly completed the leasing of its retail space in the Commerce Building with the signing of Silver Leaf Cigar Bar. Located at 426 Commerce, the cigar bar will occupy 2,105 square feet on the first level of the building facing Commerce Street, which includes a 351 square foot patio. 

The cigar bar will offer cigars, humidors, pipes, pipe tobacco and accessories. Featuring an upscale ambiance with a focus on service, Silver Leaf Cigar Bar will cater to guests who enjoy the taste of a good cigar with their favorite drink.

“This is a fun, new venture and I am really excited to take possession of the space, start the build out and open our store this fall,” said owner, Tom Cavinder.  “We expect Silver Leaf Cigar Bar will be well received in downtown Fort Worth and will quickly develop a loyal following.”

In addition to Silver Leaf Cigar Bar, Cavinder also owns Southwest Elevators. 

“What a great addition to our mix of restaurants, shops, and entertainment destinations in Sundance Square,” said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square. “Cigar bars have been a growing trend across the US and we are thrilled to have an upscale cigar bar come to Sundance Square.”

With more than 17,100 square feet of total retail space in the Commerce Building, only 2,400 square feet remains on the corner of Commerce and 3rd Street.  Bill Booker, director of leasing at Sundance Square, represented the developer and Cavinder represented Silver Leaf Cigar Bar.

Opening in the fall 2013, the Commerce Building also will be home to Del Frisco’s Grille and Shannon Wynne’s Bird Café.  An L-shaped restaurant, Bird Café will take 3,883 square feet of space in the adjacent Land Title Building and 2,586 square feet in the Commerce Building. Del Frisco’s Grille will lease more than 9,000 square feet between two floors in the Commerce Building, including a large patio fronting the plaza.

Shannon, Gracey, Ratliff & Miller, LLP has leased the top three floors of the 83,000 square foot Class A building.

The façade of the Commerce Building will be broken into three distinct parts to complement the scale of other buildings in the area, including the existing Land Title Building built in 1889.  The Commerce Building’s center facade will feature four-story arched brick window bays over a rusticated brick and granite base.

Sundance Square is a vibrant, award-winning entertainment district that spans 35 blocks in downtown Fort Worth. The multi-use development attracts more than 10 million visitors each year. For more information about Sundance Square, visit
