I don't live in the area, that's why I wouldn't have gone there, but next time I'm in the LES I'm there!!

We had a great time! Vincent the bartender took such great care of us, and my friend and I just made plans two days ago to revisit next week.

The location is NOT a nice neighborhood, but the bar is lovely and the staff is nice...although not too knowledgeable about wines...but it was the perfect way to spend two hours away from the bustling city.

The food choices were not what we thought it would be....there was no menu to pick appetizers...we were given a plate of goodies but it wasn't what we expected.

Alejandro is an excellent bartender and an asset to Sweet Grapes. We will come back because of him.

Location is not great. Loved the bar but don't know if I will return because it's not convenient.

My husband and I really enjoyed the vibe and the wines we had at Sweet Grapes, and it was a pleasure chatting with Robert.

From Our Editors

Perhaps it’s the slow, bluesy chords flowing from the guitarist in the corner that compel the customer to put down her drink, pick up a stick of chalk, and scrawl a wistful message on the bar. Or perhaps it’s the flicker of candles––their golden halos staving off the city night––that has inspired this misty-eyed inscription. Far from being annoyed at the graffiti now adorning his workspace, the bartender leans over to read the patron’s message, smiling knowingly at the freshly penned late-night bulletin. With a grin and a poured glass of wine, he coaxes a smile from her as she swipes her words from the board.

Such intimate, inviting evenings are a regular occurrence at Sweet Grapes Wine Bar, where a vast collection of vinous libations and snacks keep guests chatting and laughing into the wee hours of the morning. The chalkboard-topped bar affords customers a blank expanse to fill with favorite quotes or high-school locker combinations, while an ever-changing lineup of musicians floods the space with live tunes on a regular basis.
