Really unassuming front to this place, don't let it deter you and swing around the side to get into the bar. When you go inside (why sit on the patio when the inside is SO cool) you're walking into an underground cellar where you can feel the walls move every time the tube goes by. We went on a weekday before the after work rush, so it was easy to find a seat and enjoy a glass of wine and some... more

A hidden Neighborhood gem that literally all locals know. We've all been to wine bars .....unlikely like this oneā€¼ Allow me to paint a picture - cave like, dark, charming , romantic , & a great gathering place for friends . There's a huge outside patio that spreads the length of the park.

First station was to select your nibbles- cheeses, meats , Scottish egg, antipastas & French baguette... more
