Founded in the Netherlands in 1999, Oil & Vinegar offers customers the chance to experience exciting new tastes. Visitors choose from more than 40 “on tap” vinegar and olive-oil flavors that glow from within their suspended glass containers. The staff makes transporting purchases convenient by selling bottles onsite or filling bottles brought from home.
Condiments come in creative flavors, such as blood-orange grapeseed oil and hibiscus vinegar, and include standouts from Italy, Spain, Greece, France, South Africa, Morocco, USA, and even Japan. The list is almost as impressive as the number of Oil & Vinegar stores (more than 90) peppered across 13 countries. Guests can sample the oils and vinegars before committing, and stock their cupboards with the shop’s other offerings—appetizers, herbs and spices, pasta, and even serving dishes.

Across the walls of AK Photo Magic's spacious studio, eye-catching colors pop from pieces of Alex Kocoglu's original artwork, beckoning to visitors with their raised 3-D reliefs and splashes of chroma.

The multitalented artist wields the camera across a variety of mediums, immortalizing cherished vehicles with automotive photography and enhancing resumés with professional headshots and model shoots.
