Cellar Masters offers a daily wine tasting in the afternoon or evening, featuring a different wine region each day and including discussions with knowledgeable sommeliers. Martini Bar & Crush offers a menu of martinis and hosts vodka and caviar tastings at its ice-topped bar, while World Class Bar serves handcrafted cocktails.
