In 2008, Antonio launched the retail division of Mezlan by opening its first company-owned boutique in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Grand Canal Shoppes in the Venetian/Palazzo hotels. The store was met with international acclaim and would serve as a showcase for the brand, a place where customer service would be held to the highest standards in the business. The company would go on to open five more Mezlan boutiques in exclusive shopping centers throughout the U.S.
A seventh flagship Mezlan boutique will open its doors at 520 Madison Avenue in New York City in January 2017. The store, from its flooring, finishes, furnishings to lighting, has been designed by Antonio and hand-built by Zora Mobiliario, S.L. in Antonio’s native Spain.
In the meantime, we’d love to see you at one of our other locations!
Mezlan Las Vegas
Luxury men’s footwear retailer Mezlan chose none other than Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World, as it is often referred to, as the location for its first company-owned boutique. Where better for Mezlan to debut its high-end line of men’s European fashion footwear and accessories than one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world?
Opened in 2008 in the lavish Shoppes at The Palazzo, this luxurious Mezlan store represents an amazing culmination of modern meets retro styling and décor. Upon its completion in 2008, The Palazzo was the largest building in terms of floor space, surpassing the Pentagon.
The Palazzo houses an enormous luxury hotel along with many high-end luxury shops and exquisite restaurants, many of which are exclusive to Las Vegas and the United States. Since then, the Shoppes at The Palazzo has been absorbed by the Grand Canal Shoppes, combining the luxury retail, dining, and entertainment experiences of both the Venetian and Palazzo hotel properties into one shopping extravaganza.
After successfully opening his first luxury boutique in Las Vegas, Mezlan CEO Antonio Sanchez realized that choosing a location in the south for his second store could potentially be a tough decision. After all, which shopping destination in the south, if anywhere, contains the glamour, allure, and luxury of Las Vegas? To Antonio, the answer was, in fact, easy: Phipps Plaza in the City of Atlanta.
Opened in 1989 and later sold to luxury shopping developer Simon in 1992, Phipps Plaza is located in the affluent and diverse Buckhead District of Atlanta. The Buckhead District, which has the highest concentration of upscale boutiques in the U.S., is often referred to as the “Beverly Hills of the South”.
The mall itself is embellished with stunning interior décor including beautiful mahogany walls, lavish glass elevators and chandeliers, luxurious marble floors, and a huge grand staircase. With its collection of men’s luxury footwear and accessories, Mezlan is a perfect fit for a luxury shopping destination such as Phipps Plaza!
When searching for a location in The Windy City for Mezlan’s third retail boutique, to Mezlan CEO Antonio Sanchez, the choice was obvious. He needn’t look any further than Chicago’s luxurious and chic Magnificent Mile or “Mag Mile” as it is commonly referred to.
The Mezlan store opened there in August 2012 in the 900 North Michigan Shops, centered in the 900 North Michigan building. With its unique and fashionable collection of high-end men’s European footwear and accessories, Mezlan is right at home at the 900 North Michigan Shops.
With an impressive 66 floors of high-end retail shops, restaurants, luxury condominiums, numerous financial offices, the posh Four Season Hotel, a twelve-story parking garage, a medical clinic, and even a stunning six-story retail atrium where the Mezlan boutique resides, the 900 North Michigan skyscraper reins in at eighth among the tallest Chicago buildings. At a massive 871 feet tall, 900 North Michigan was completed in 1989 in limestone and green glass, giving the building a powerful silhouette in the Chicago skyline.
Mezlan Arlington/Pentagon City
With three luxury boutiques already open in various markets across the country, Mezlan CEO Antonio Sanchez had no trouble picking the perfect location for a fourth company-owned boutique. Not wanting to rest on his laurels, Sanchez quickly procured a prime location in the vibrant and bustling community of Arlington, Virginia, just minutes from our Nation’s capital.
Originally completed in 1989 and undergoing a recent massive renovation and expansion featuring 50,000 additional square feet of brand new shops and restaurants completed in Fall 2016, Fashion Centre at Pentagon City is the largest enclosed shopping mall in Arlington. Catering to an affluent, upper-middle-class crowd and hosting a vibrant cross-section of international tourists and diplomats, Fashion Centre indulges its customers in its large array of luxury retail shops and high-end restaurants.
Fashion Centre is also directly connected to the local luxurious Ritz Carlton Hotel. The mall’s metro level is directly connected to the Pentagon City Metro Station, two stops from Ronald Reagan National Airport, an international airport only three miles from downtown Washington, DC, allowing the area’s millions of tourists and locals alike easy access to luxury shopping, fine dining, and other amenities.
Since “Everything is bigger in Texas” as the popular maxim maintains, it goes without saying that Houston would be the perfect fit for Mezlan’s fifth company-owned retail boutique. Opened in April 2013 in the luxurious Houston Galleria shopping mall, this Mezlan store, one of the company’s largest in size, resides in the largest shopping mall in Texas.
Home to almost 400 stores, dozens of restaurants, a financial tower, two hotels, and the first ice rink ever to be built inside a mall, The Galleria sits in the middle of Houston’s affluent and culturally diverse Uptown District, a bustling area of commerce, luxury shopping, and hospitality.
With over 35 million visitors annually from all over the world, it’s no surprise that The Galleria is Houston’s number one attraction, and one of the most popular shopping destinations in the world. The mall itself, modeled after Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan for its large barrel vault ceiling, opened in 1970 and has grown immensely over the decades to become the ninth largest mall in the United States.
Mezlan San Jose
Nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley, Mezlan chose the San Jose / Santa Clara area as the home for its sixth men’s boutique. Opened in June 2013 in Westfield Valley Fair, this Mezlan store caters to a vibrant, successful crowd of professionals, many of whom are titans of the technology industry.
One of the largest malls in Northern California, the shopping center literally sits on the border of San Jose and Santa Clara, the eastern portion on the San Jose side and the western portion in Santa Clara. As one of the most affluent, tech-savvy, and curiously fashionable cities in the nation, enjoying dynamic synergy with its brother city, San Francisco, the more than 500,000 residents of San Jose call this place their playground, their workplace, and their home; a natural fit for Mezlan and its collection of men’s luxury footwear and accessories.
