Walking into the new Rollers Wines and Spirits, which recently opened its newest location on Hilton Head Island, is like walking into a scene from “The Great Gatsby.”
Art deco light fixtures hang above a 1920s wood bar pulled from a New Jersey joint. Wine glasses hang from a rusted metal ladder.
You can picture F. Scott Fitzgerald’s hero having a drink as he waits for friends.
“A lot of the pieces here are reworked, used fixtures from antique shops in Charleston and other areas,” Camille Copeland, general manager, said of the new location at 9 Palmetto Bay Road.
Customers will find the same selection of wine and liquor they expect from other Rollers stores. But unlike other locations, they don’t have to leave after making a purchase.
Patio tables frame the building while private booths inside offer a quiet spot for conversation or work.
Each of the booths offers a window view, and walls separate them from other customers. A curtain can be drawn for those truly trying to block out the world around them. Antique doorbells are located in each booth to be rung when guests need a refill.
Copeland said booths also come with full electrical hookups and USB ports for those wanting a quiet place to work.
Cheese trays and small plates also are available for snacks.
But maybe you want to pick up something to party Great Gatsby style?
A $10,000 bottle of Old Rip Van Wrinkle — a 25-year-old bourbon —is the most expensive bottle in the joint.
For those with a little less money, the selection at the store is vast, The least expensive item is a .50 cent mini bottle of liquor.
The new store opened Monday. It replaces the Rollers’ Wine and Cheese, which has closed at its 24 Palmetto Bay Road location.
It will be open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and later for special events.
