At Yaletown’s Revolución Cigar & Fine Gifts, Paul Agelidis welcomes clients from all over the world, curious to see his unique lifestyle products. Revolución is also a favourite for celebrities , including Halle Berry, Leonardo DiCaprio and Harrison Ford.

The store’s success is testament to a lifestyle both of quality and expression. Agelidis took over the space 12 years ago, and the experience has been greater than he ever imagined. He has been welcomed warmly and received support from the local community.

“It is a pleasure to be a part of Yaletown,” he notes.

His core belief — that the finer things in life never go out of style — has been his inspiration. Now a thriving business, Revolución offers a wide range of cigars for any palate and occasion.

“When I opened this store, I worked long hours, keeping the doors open for anyone to walk in,” he recalls. “The previous owner had told me there would be some very difficult days but we persevered, and with support from family and friends, we have established a very popular store.”

Revolución’s product line extends far beyond cigars, to personal grooming, home fragrance, skincare and shaving tools. As part of the finer lifestyle collection, there is also an expanding selection of barware for the cocktail aficionado.

For spring, Agelidis is bringing in more quality barware including whiskey and cocktail glassware, decanters, luxury bar sets and other drinks accessories.

“Serve your friends a fine Scotch or a well-made cocktail and enjoy,” he smiles. “Part of the pleasure comes from having the tools, glassware and proper equipment to hand.

“As Mark Twain said, ‘Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.’”
