Profile

This venue is closed.

This tech-savvy wine bar and shop offers automated two-ounce tastes of over 100 vintages of wine, triggered with the swipe of a pre-paid card. Bottles are kept temperature-controlled and oxygen-free by the Enomatic preservation system,  a dark wood case that encircles the intimate space with views of Columbus Circle below. Clo’s two master sommeliers make the selections, which span 15 countries; varietals are organized on an increasing scale of body and flavor—from high-acid Riesling to full-bodied Syrah. The petit pours range from $3 to $83, and the white central bar also doubles as an iPod-like touch-screen for scrolling by grape, region, price, or tasting notes. Glassware and gadgetry are displayed in glowing shelves surrounding the outside of the space, including shapely glasses of all sizes, carafes, decanters, wine buckets, vino thermometers, corkscrews, and sheepskin bottle insulators. The bar serves a limited menu of cheese and charcuterie, welcome sustenance for tipplers and those waiting for a table at Bar Masa next door.
