Tasting Counter



WINE BAR → Tuesday 5PM–1AM | Wednesday–Saturday 10PM–1AM


 We are Closed January 1 – 12

 We will re-open Tuesday, January 15 at 5pm


Maybe you’re feeling spontaneous or a bit curious. Or perhaps you are just in the mood to drink some truly fabulous wine. If so, come visit us during our Wine Bar evenings when we slide open our doors and offer an à la carte menu of seasonal small (and not-so-small) bites including Wine Bar signatures - think duck reubens and spiced sweet potato fries - that 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, Argentina to Oregon.

With lots of lovely surprises and value (small bites start at $5 while wines by the glass begin at $10), and no reservations required, 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.
