This is the kind of sophisticated place you would expect to find in a bar on the ground floor of the Tuf-Nut lofts downtown. It's cosmopolitan yet comfortable, a relaxed place to enjoy fine wines and beers while noshing on superb meats, cheeses and amazing goat cheese-stuffed figs.
The wine menu is diverse and, besides by the glass and bottle, customers may order combinations of wine in small servings. It's a place where one might hear wines snobs go on about the oaky cloak, the plummy legs, the acid mouthfeel ... . The music is jazzy, easy to talk over. Along with the multitude of wines (from California, France, Chile, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain) and beers are meats, cheeses, stuffed figs, peppers, hummus and other delectable morsels.
