Businesses that multitask mean you can enjoy your glass of Pinot and get a mean manicure.
With wine bars popping up from Lafayette to Livermore, it’s easy to find a place to enjoy a glass. But for those multitasking oenophiles who just don’t have the luxury to linger, here are a few spots where you can sip wine—while taking care of business.
Just switch your glass from one hand to the other, as you get a manicure and sip one of this new spa and salon’s dozen different wines, or a sake cocktail.

Entourage Day Night Spa Salon and Café
Owner Gino Chiodo has been pairing wine and food with salon and spa services since Entourage opened in 2003: “I was a hairstylist in San Francisco, and I noticed that in the morning, people bring in coffee, but by around 4 o’clock, if there was a bottle of wine open anywhere nearby, it would be sucked down in five minutes. So, why not do it by design?”

The Vine Cinema
Take in a classic like the original True Grit (June 9) or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (June 16), or any of the Vine’s art house flicks, while sipping a Livermore Valley wine.
