There’s no city quite like Las Vegas. Aside from gambling and some pretty amazing shows, it is the place to get your drink on. Why? Because — with a few exceptions, of course — drinking is legal in public. Yes, you can wander the Las Vegas Strip with a cocktail in hand!
As if that’s not enough, drinking in Sin City just got even better thanks to one bar’s new Wine ATM that lets wine lovers serve themselves right from the tap.
What is a Wine ATM, you ask? It’s a “unique dispensing system” at the wine bar The Hostile Grape in M Resort Spa Casino in Las Vegas.
Let’s just say, you’re going to want to make the trip! With 160 wines on tap (and 400 total in their wine cellar!), there is a wine for every taste, from red and white to dry and sweet.
Here’s how it works:
First, you load money onto a wine card and insert it into the machine. You then choose a wine you’d like to try, including the size pour you’d like, press a button, and that’s it — wine time!
Check out the video below for an up-close look at the beauty that is the Wine ATM:
Food and beverage ATMs aren’t exactly new. Arnaud’s restaurant and bar in New Orleans even has a champagne vending machine!
There is also a self-serve system for beer called “Pour My Beer” that has been installed at more than 200 locations worldwide.
It’s not just booze that you can get from vending machines, either. A cupcake ATM called “Sprinkles” has popped up in multiple locations around the U.S.
There are also pizza ATMs, which are perfect for those late-night cravings when you’re out and about (we’re looking at you, college kids!).
And of course, coin-operated automats, feeding folks around the country since 1902, are the original self-service way to eat!
What do you think of getting your food and drinks this way? Would you want to check out the Wine ATM?
