This futuristic spot is what we imagine a wine bar aboard the Starship Enterprise might look like. The mechanized setup is challenging at first, but ultimately liberating: Wine is dispensed from metal spigots at the push of a button, and a touch screen displays tasting notes for each selection. The tech doesn’t come cheap. Prizes such as Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape go for $26 a glass, but you won’t feel robbed by more affordable pleasures, like the flowery Miolo Vale dos Vinhedos pinot noir ($9). Compounding the otherworldly vibe: the sweeping Columbus Circle views.
