FROM THE WIRES...
Social Oak Wine & Whiskey Lounge Now Open in Trophy Club
The upscale lounge features a large selection of wines and whiskeys from around the globe and state-of-the-art wine and whiskey self-serve machines
DALLAS, TX [November 28, 2022] - Social Oak Wine & Whiskey Lounge, the chic and elegant upscale wine and whiskey lounge is now open in Trophy Club at 2230 TX-114, Suite 550, Trophy Club, TX 76262. The lounge is open daily for guests to enjoy some of the finest wines and whiskeys from around the globe.
Social Oak offers guests a unique experience with state-of-the-art wine and whiskey self-serve machines with 56 wines and 28 whiskeys available by the pour. This allows guests the opportunity to explore a wide variety of wines with the assistance of an in-house sommelier. The lounge with a speakeasy feel also features a full bar with signature cocktails and a tapas style menu consisting of international cuisine with an Asian flare.
Social Oak Owner, Vinh Le says of the inspiration behind the concept, “During my travels, I had stumbled upon some amazing wine bars and there was one in particular that had the wine pouring machines. I fell in love with the social aspect of walking up to the machines and talking to people about the wines. I also loved being able to try a small pour before committing to a full glass or bottle. I chose to open the first location in Trophy Club because we have so many sophisticated wine and whiskey drinkers in the area and it’s hard to find an upscale 21 and up lounge without having to drive to Dallas or Ft. Worth”.
The wine and whiskey selection at Social Oak was hand-selected by a team of sommeliers. For those looking to broaden their wine or whiskey palate, their head Sommelier Bianca Nunez is always eager to help. Bianca discovered her love of wine while living and working in Fredericksburg, the heart of Texas’ wine industry. She is a Level 2 sommelier and has an impressive background in wine and spirits from assisting in wine production for several of Texas’ finest wine makers to working in tasting rooms and wine bars.
Bianca explains, “The machines preserve the wines by keeping oxygen out of the bottles, allowing us to provide rare selections such as high-end vintage bottles of wine by the glass. Guests have the option of choosing from 1 ounce, 3 ounce, and 5 ounce pours giving them the opportunity to sample wines before committing to a full glass.” she continues, “Our whiskey program is extensive with many hard to find allocated whiskeys such as Kentucky Owl, Lock Stock and Barrel 21, Blanton’s, and Shenk’s Homestead. We also carry a great selection of Japanese whisky like Yamazaki 18, Hibiki, and Hakushu 12. Guests can choose from 1 ounce, 1.5 ounce and 2 ounce pours from the machines. We also offer tableside cocktail smoking for those looking for an amazing smoked Old Fashioned.”
To pair with the beverage program, Social Oak’s female chef, Nga Vu has created a menu of international shareable plates with an Asian flare. Nga has over 20 years experience in the restaurant industry and pulls inspiration from her travels to create her own take on dishes she loves. Standout items on the menu include Wild Burgundy Escargot - snails, garlic, butter, parsley; Japanese Pork Belly Buns - pork chashu, steamed bao buns, asian slaw, spring onions; Social Oak Truffle Pasta - cream sauce, fresh parmesan, truffle pieces, truffle oil; Macadamia Brussel - brussel sprouts, ginger soy glaze, macadamia nuts; Curry Chicken Satay - chicken, coconut, curry, peanut sauce; Truffle Deviled Eggs - bacon and crispy shallots; and Sliced Steak and Mash - New York strip, whipped potatoes, Asian chimichurri sauce.
All of these items can be enjoyed in the 2,640 square foot space with seating for 70. The lounge offers a chic speakeasy feel and is adorned with soft velvet panels and gold chain curtains dropping from the ceiling. The seating consists of modern tufted sofas, leather club chairs and a custom VIP banquette that makes the space ideal for those looking for a comfortable and relaxing setting. Social Oak will also open their patio soon with seating for 50 and a designated cigar area where guests can smoke cigars from the lounge’s large humidor.
