Om Bar & Chill Lounge holds dominion over a deep vault of more than 120 beers and 100 wine selections seized from all parts of the world and chilled in captivity to pacify ravenous thirsts. Suds-seeking guests can select from throngs of bottled and draft beers; recent offerings include Sierra Nevada pale ale, Kronenbourg 1664, and Skullsplitter (pints start at $3.75). Wine aficionados can find liquid relief in the crisp finish of a glass of Capasaldo pinot grigio or an aromatic, palate-pleasing bottle of Fess Parker syrah (glasses start at $5; bottles start at $18). Dessert wines and specialty drinks keep flaky taste buds interested, and cigars and hookahs provide succor to olfactory organs, preventing nostrils from crying out in the middle of the night and having to be stuffed with potpourri.
Lined with mahogany-colored shelves, Wine Bank's walls display bottles upon bottles of wines, suggesting that its name is no misrepresentation. But unlike most wine shops, Wine Bank isn't just about wine. Here, beers, fine wines, and cigars complement an in-house menu of upscale starters and gourmet entrees, ranging from pork filet mignon to shrimp mac 'n' cheese. And for those who would rather drink wine than spend thousands building vineyards in their basement, Wine Bank offers memberships with discounts and invitations to private tastings and events.
