Bank complements La Toque by serving breakfast and lunch, with an evening focus on shared plates and wine. An island bar and eating counter with community table is the focal point of the space. The bar’s location–open both to the dining area and the main hotel lobby–creates a, larger functional space that can accommodate large groups. A folding wall opens Bank to the hotel’s pool patio to the east. The indoor-outdoor design conveys a warm, comfortable gathering place where guests savor their wine rather than dropping in for a quick drink.
The bar offers an extensive selection of half bottles, many only available in the Napa Valley. Signature magnums are displayed in an elaborate stainless steel, glass, and metal mesh bottle storage unit that is suspended over the bar. Dramatic lighting on the wine storage enlivens the whole bar and lobby. Intimate banquette seating lines the perimeter of the space, and the surrounding walls are covered in naturally finished, re-claimed teak. The bar is made of blackened steel with a pewter top.
