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.
Pros: Great staff. Small, but interesting wine selection. Private Room for Parties
Cons: Plain exterior gives no hint as to what to expect inside.

You have to try this place. The wide range of reasonbly priced wines available at Cellar 17, many of which can not be found at large liquor or grocery chains, is a great reason to visit the shop, but there are other great attractions. ...
A specialty wine store in the Champions area. Fairly comprehensive selection of both red and whte wines. Domestic and international varieties. A wine bar with a daily happy hour featuring certain wines. Also a party room in which you can bring your own food or have the event catered. And of course they will furnish the wine!
