You don't have to be some pretentious wine aficionado to simply want a nice night out in a decent wine bar. Well these top NYC places far exceed "decent" as they are some of the very best!
Some say this is where you go with the "other" person. I, myself, think one should bring their current person. This intimate loungy wine den is a perfect place to stare deeply into someone's eyes while kickin' back on a couple flutes of Cava.
Looking to seduce or get seduced? Come here and sink into a comfy couch as you chat away the night by romantic candlelight, sipping on the finest Pinot.
Is it an unwritten rule that all wine bars have the best names ever? If you think the name is good, try hanging out here for a few hours. this small, cozy wine den has everything to offer and then some. Try their assorted cheese plate with a nice bottle of French Bordeaux. My mouth is watering as I type.
This is where you want to be on a cold winter's night. Nothing beats sipping on some fine Syrah while cuddling up to your special someone in front of a roaring fireplace.
Other than the fact that the name of this place should also be the name if the band I'm gonna start, this place does not disappoint! For those of us who wished we knew more about wine than we do, this is the place to go. You will be schooled every so gently by their oh-so-helpful sommelier as you pat dry your ruby stained lips.
No need to trek downtown for a cozy wine bar, when midtown can hold its own with this place. Not only is the wine selection superb, but their appetizers are as tasty as can be. Try the garlic-ginger shrimp. It's one of their best.
Wine and Whiskey? My two fave words that start with "W." This quaint pub-type place packs a punch when it comes to style and class. You might have to throw down a few bucks, but I'm telling you... it's all worth it. And I am poor.
This is the first and only place I've ever had Tapas and let me tell you... yummmmmm. Their selection of wines is pitch perfect when it comes to complimenting those small, tasty plates.
This is the kind of place you should bring someone you are trying to impress here. The atmosphere is cozy-casual with just the right amount of wine in their selection to make you feel like you still know a thing or two about wine. Plus, their pastries are so darn good, you'll want to hit something.
