Elegant Wine Bar for "Outer Loopers."
Forget what you think you're going to find behind the utilitarian reflective store front glass across the parking lot from a Mister Car Wash. You're in for a treat if you'll just convince yourself to just open the door and walk inside. An expansive space with a small bar personality, you'll find a friendly staff and an interesting selection that includes small production, highly allocated boutique wines alongside budget friendly wines with familiar labels. The space is huge, but feels comfortable with comfy couches and arm chairs grouped together for casual conversation. They have a limited menu as the kitchen space is tiny, but they allow food from outside to be brought in, so grab a bite from any of the neighboring restaurants, choose a bottle of wine from their inventory and enjoy date night on a budget. Bonus #1: There is a private room available for parties. Bonus #2: The owners also own the cigar shop next door so guys can grab a glass of wine and go have a smoke and catch the game on the big screen.
