“Voted one of the top 10 wine bars in the country by the Wall Street Journal. The happy hour can't be beat. Be there before the doors open at 5pm in order to get a spot at the bar for their happy hour with small plates and excellent glasses of wine. If the bar is not full by 5:03, it will be full by 5:05 pm. This is a local favorite.”
