OTG, an award-winning airport F&B operator tapped New York City-based experiential design firm ICRAVE to transform Wibar, a new wine bar in Delta Terminal C at LaGuardia Airport. The wine drinking experience is enhanced by bringing the back bar into the public space and making each seat feel like one is sitting at the sommeliers feature table. Wibar’s wine list, composed by Roger Dagorn, famed and awarded Master Sommelier, features a wide range of 101 premium wines by the glass from around the world, all dispensed from an Enomatic wine serving system. Each bottle is sealed and preserved using an inert gas system ensuring that each pour is fresh and free of oxidation.
The space is bookended by two feature wine walls that extend off the central bar. The wine wall, wrapped with rich dark ebony wood, also serves as the wine pouring stations bringing the smells and aromas to the customer. Accents of red are used in the signage and an illuminated band that wraps the entire space. A feature chandelier composed of more than 1100 custom fumed glass crystals creates a canopy above the entire space, both collecting and reflecting light to create a transforming experience for the viewer. In addition, this ultimate wine bar offers guests OTG's acclaimed iPad experience, where travelers can browse a visual menu translatable in 20 different languages, have access to real-time flight information, and complimentary browse the web.
