Building on an idea that first fruited in the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions of France, Mountain View Winery became one of California's first n?gociant wineries in 1978, its winemakers concocting vintages by curating, blending, and aging a harvest of grapes from rigorously vetted vineyards. Owner Angelo Pera strives to deliver a compelling product by partnering with organic growers and packaging companies and indoctrinates new or interested customers during spirit-sampling symposiums. Throughout tastings, visitors glean each grape's origin, method of production, and propensity for carpet staining.

The Flatiron is a stylish sports haven, featuring a vintage aesthetic combined with subtle nods to its sports theme. Antique stools flank a bar that's bedecked with subway tiles, weathered wooden planks, and a retired home and visitors time clock. Flat-screen TVs hang from rustic wood-paneled walls, providing unobstructed views of live sporting events. In one corner of the bar, old-school arcade games, including Street Fighter II, entertain guests during commercial breaks. And in another corner, a mural of sports fans watches over patrons as they eat eclectic bar food such as bacon-wrapped slider hot dogs, root-beer floats, and burgers topped with fried eggs and bacon aioli.
With more than 100 events throughout the year, members of The Society of Single Professionals don’t have to brave the bar scene ever again. Since 1978, the non-profit singles haven has hosted wine tastings, dances, and mixers throughout the Bay Area, linking up like-minded people according to age, profession, or shared freckle patterns.
With it's classic checkered tablecloths, Night Light provides a casual atmosphere in which to enjoy its selection of fine wines and craft beers.

The owners have plenty of practice curating a selection of fine wines, garnered at their other establishment, Wellington's Wine Bar. They offer almost two-dozen varietals of wine by glass, with vintages from France, Napa Valley, Argentina, and Italy. They expand the collection with some premium bottle-only wines, such as Chat-en-oeuf's dry yet fruity 2010 Rhone Blend, or the black currant-enriched Nickel & Nickel 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon.
