WINE BAR → Tuesday 5PM–1AM | Wednesday–Saturday 10PM–1AM
No reservations required... walk in anytime during our open hours!
Maybe you’re feeling spontaneous or a bit curious. Or perhaps you are just in the mood to drink some truly amazing wine. Visit us for Wine Bar when we slide open our doors and offer an à la carte menu of seasonal small bites, as well as full-course dishes... such as smoked duck sandwich on potato roll and spiced sweet potato fries, to seaweed dumplings with sea urchin and chili-molasses glazed amberjack collar... which happen to pair perfectly with our collection of unique natural wines available by the glass and bottle.
Our wine list features a number of lesser-known and beautifully made varietals from talented grower-producers including charming old-world style wines from Italy and France, along with exciting discoveries from around the world, from Spain to Slovenia, and Argentina to Oregon. With lots of lovely surprises and great value (small bites start at $6, while wines by the glass begin at $10), Wine Bar offers the perfect excuse for an aperitif, nightcap, or evening out. No reservations are required and seating is first come, first serve... simply drop in and enjoy the comforts of our space.
