Trendy Wine Bar, Newark Airport
As I waited in Newark Airport for our plane to Europe earlier this week, I noticed a new bar opened up. Vino Volo has a very different feel than the regular badly-pretending-to-be-a-city-bar type venue that you find in many US airports. It’s bright and open, uses contemporary furniture and simple interior design tricks to pull off a modern look. Oh, and everyone is sat around drinking wine – not supersized pints of beer.
What’s more interesting than the look is the menu. When it gets handed to you as you sit down, you expect to be handed a arms length list of plonk from around the world but instead you get given twelve select choices and all from places you know – Merlot from California, Pinot from Chile etc.
