Wine Bottles and Stoppers from THE CLO

On display in glass-enclosed walls outside The CLO Wine Bar are wine bottles and unique, orchid- or magnolia-shaped glass bottle stoppers. Above are some photos that I took of the beautiful display. The Clo is a 75-seat wine bar in the Time Warner Center that boasts a motion-activated wine list, automatic pours from an Enomatic system that keeps wine fresh, and a team of real humans from Aureole in Las Vegas to oversee the whole thing. Small plates of olives, cheese and salumi round out the experience. At Clo, which is located at the galeria's fourth level, customers can sample 100-odd vintages served in two-ounce pours and then buy them by the bottle from a small store to be installed near the elevators on the same floor. The Time Warner Center is located at 10 Columbus Circle. Tel. 212-823-9898.
