DAVID JONES WINE BAR
Sydney, New South Wales

Top10 Image
Those who have walked the hallowed halls of David Jones' basement salivating over glistening fruit, gourmet cheese and impossibly perfect desserts will be happy to know there's another reason to hang around; the Wine Bar. In a democratising setup, patrons choose a wine (or two) from a fandangle cabinet, swiping a credit card to have a glass filled by the automated system. The mechanical service may seem a little cold to some but it's a fun way to enjoy some serious drops.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

‘You have to do it yourself?' I hear a smartly-dressed lady ask her equally well-dressed friend. It seems like a very "un-David Jones" thing to do but yes, at their new wine bar – the novelty is Do It Yourself.

Tucked away in a discreet corner of its sprawling basement gourmet food court is the David Jones Wine Bar. There are a handful of stools that line the bar for solo dining and a few large tables are perfect for groups of up to six. One wall is lined with emerald green floral Tea2 teapots, cups and saucers, adding a touch of frivolity to the otherwise serious bar-like surrounds.

The idea is simple: put some credit on a plastic card and then walk over to the glass wine cabinets that run the length of the wall and touch the button above your wine selection. Not a wine connoisseur? Never fear! The David Jones philosophy of selling "the best and most exclusive goods" still applies to its high-class vending machines and there isn't a glass on their wine lists that isn't worth drinking.

The DIY nature of the wine bar may not be for everyone, but it's a novelty that's worth a visit – even if you just wind up with a bagful of chocolate-coated-strawberries from the main food court on your way out.
