The Monday Room at Public

A smart fellow in New Zealand had a "Monday room" in his office where he would go on Monday nights to drink wine and think about the week ahead. We suggest you do the same—chill with great wine flights and canapes in their new lounge. Luckily, you can also do this on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays...
