A World of Wine satisfies all palates and budgets with more than 300 artisanal wines from around the globe. The newly opened neighborhood vino boutique encourages oenophiles to linger with a menu of wines by the glass and no corkage fee for full bottles. The shop's knowledgeable staffers lead weekly samplings and monthly classes in which customers can learn proper tasting techniques and boat-christening strategies.
In 2008, the bartenders at Vegalou Ultra Bar proved their drink-making prowess by successfully setting off a domino chain that consisted of 672 Jägermeister shots falling into cups of Red Bull—a feat that earned them the world record that year. Today, they fill cocktail shakers with mango pomegranatinis and moscow mules and glasses with 25-ounce domestic draft and imported beers. Near the bar, there’s a permanently installed water screen—a waterfall that has videos projected directly onto its surface.
VIP Cleaners’ first location opened in 1992.

The shops also offer leather dying, suede cleaning, and alteration services.
