Finding a good bar isn’t difficult, but finding a good selection of wine, at said bar, totally is. Time has come for us to realise that wine bars are surfacing and are as amazing, if not more, than the beer and cocktail bars in New York City!
It’s not just red and white anymore, wine aficionados have come out of their cellars into the city’s barflies and have introduced us to funky wine lists coupled with reasonable bar-fare.
Don’t believe us? Search for bus stations near me, catch the next bus to one of these sassy wine bars and see for yourself!
1. The Four Horsemen
LCD Soundsystem’s, James Murphy stirred up quite a storm with this unique wine bar. The aesthetic of this place is through the roof with wooden interiors, cloth covered walls, vintage sound machines and bookshelves. Their wines are sourced from Western Europe and the States but are actually pretty affordable. The staff is pretty helpful and will guide you through if you don’t know what vin to pick.
2. Corkbuzz Wine Studio
Corkbuzz is a restaurant and wine bar offering you 50+ types of wine from places like South Africa, Europe, Lebanon and USA. Along with a reasonable $15 glass, they also educate you about the different kinds of wine in the world. It’s sort of like a masterclass where you get to taste what the chef has brought to the table.
3. Vanguard Wine Bar
Vanguard is everything you thought a bar is through the movies you’ve watched about New York. This beauty has an Upper West Side charm playing tunes by Frank Sinatra, extra looking vintage chandeliers and streaming old but classic movies on the flatscreen. They offer a number of domestic and international wines and have segregated them by nature so it’s easy to choose your next glass.
