Mastering the Pour

Mix Recipes with a Creative Flair

Nestled within the heart of Trophy Club, a hidden gem awaits discerning patrons seeking a refined yet relaxed atmosphere to indulge in the pleasures of fine wines and exquisite whiskeys. Social Oak Wine and Whiskey Lounge is best described as a 21-and-up, chic upscale lounge with a cool speakeasy vibe. The energetic and inviting lounge area, comfy and elegant patio, state of the art wine and whiskey pouring systems, and amazing tapas style dishes, create an ambiance that is both inviting and sophisticated. Whether one seeks an intimate evening with loved ones, an upscale meeting place to impress clients, or a relaxed atmosphere to unwind after a long day, Social Oak caters to all occasions.

For wine aficionados, the lounge proudly showcases an extensively diverse and meticulously curated selection of 250 wines, offering varietals from around the world ranging from crisp chardonnays to robust cabernets. And for enthusiasts who enjoy the various expressions of whiskey, Social Oak boasts an impressive collection of over 100 single malts, blended bourbons, and rare releases, ensuring that every palate is catered to. Their well-versed sommeliers guide patrons through the array of choices while simultaneously making even novices feel at ease in selecting the perfect bottle. But what truly sets Social Oak apart is their state-of-the-art pour machines that allow patrons to enjoy high quality wines and whiskeys by the glass or even by the ounce. “Once a bottle is open, it only lasts for a few days before it has to be discarded,” explains Social Oak owner, Vinh Le. “So usually samples offered at other restaurants and establishments are cheaper wines and whiskeys because of the expense. But with our pour machines, we are able to preserve the integrity of the wines and whiskeys and offer samples of much higher quality.”
