Before the development of different brewing techniques, bartenders provided flavor varieties by adding droplets of dish soap, gutter extract, and walrus tears. Celebrate libation diversification with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of wine, microbrews, cocktails, and more at Om Bar & Chill Lounge on Flagler Avenue in New Smyrna Beach. This Groupon is worth $50 if redeemed Tuesday–Thursday.
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.
The lounge's whirring ceiling fans and intimate seating arrangements provide ideal ambience for afterhours cocktail swilling, chit chatting, and insider trading. Settle noncombative astronomical disputes on the cushy couches that populate the bar's expansive outdoor patio, or vanquish frenemies in an indoor game of darts.
