Wine lounge to open in Maple Shade

Wine lounge Versi Vino has signed a lease in Maple Shade, according to Marlton-based Vantage Real Estate Services.

The 2,600-square-foot bar will be located within a shopping plaza at 461 Route 38 near both the Cherry Hill and Moorestown malls.

Monica Walsh and Peter Abdallah, directors of client services at Vantage RES, worked with both the landlord, Piyush Amin of VP 38 Realty LLC and the tenant, Versi Vino, to locate and secure the location.

“Monica and Peter were really a pleasure to work with during this process.  The entire team provides a high level of personalization and professionalism which is not always easy to find in today’s business world.  With Vantage being based in South Jersey we also leaned on them for some introductions to other services we will need.  Those individuals we were given have also shown to be very useful as we build out our new business,” the owners of Versi Vino, said.

Versi Vino is a high-end wine-focused lounge, specializing in unique wines and upscale cuisine. It is joining Dunkin Donuts, 38 Tobacco Mart, Detangled Hair Salon, and Blush Nail Bar at 461 Route 38.

“Peter Abdallah and Monica Walsh were very professional and reachable.  The Shopping Center which had 3 vacancies is now fully leased, thanks to their efforts and hard work.  They worked alongside both the tenant and us in negotiating the lease, coordinating the process of retrofitting the space, as well as helping in the process of planning and zoning, even attending the meeting,” Amin said. “We are really thankful to Vantage RES and the team for helping us and doing the hard work for our company.”
