Vinum Reopens at Shaw Centre

A stalwart of the wine retail scene, Vinum, has reopened following an extensive renovation of Shaw Centre. The building has been given a much needed facelift and now boasts subtle lighting and polished interiors. The fine wine specialist is now joined by Caveau, which lists mid-tier wines, and The Whisky Library, representing the group's first foray into fine whiskies. Previously a casual wine bar facing Claymore Hill, Caveau will now have an additional retail presence listing over 400 wines from producers such as Domaine Huet and Thibault Liger-Belair. Meanwhile, The Whisky Library will list some 200 single-malt labels from Scotland and Japan in a 400 sqft outlet. 

The grand opening of Vinum, Caveau and The Whisky Library was held on the 31st of October. Guests were treated to canapés prepared by the Les Amis kitchen and Bruno Paillard 2002 vintage champagne. The renovation is reported to have cost around a million dollars, with one of the highlights being Vinum's state-of-the-art biometric access cellar. Black steel and brass elements with lighter shades of wood combine to lend a feel of tasteful elegance. All three outlets are located next to each other on the second floor of Shaw Centre.

Vinum is part of the Les Amis Group, which includes fine dining and casual restaurants such as Les Amis, La Strada and Bistro du Vin, also located at Shaw Centre.
