Wine and fine food are a matched pair, like Cagney and Lacey or Wayne Gretzky and the only thing people remember about hockey. Slapshot your face with flavor using today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of wine, beer, and small plates at The Wine Bar in Long Beach.
Soft lighting and tastefully modern music welcome guests to The Wine Bar, a comfortable library of libation where patrons pleasurably peruse wines, beers, and shrunken plates. Twenty-two wines from around the world gather to test tongues with grapey glugs of Fat Cat's 2008 pinot grigio and Parone's Chilean syrah (all bottles are $30). The Wine Bar's one score and five beers include a multitude of bottled options, such as North Coast Brewing Co.'s Old Rasputin—a cassock-black, Russian-style stout infused with complex flavors, 75 IBUs, 9% ABV, and imperviousness to bullets ($6)—or drafts such as Paulaner's German hefeweizen. Because the stomach cannot digest liquid without accompanying solids, customers can snack on assorted cheeses with olives and crackers ($10) or traditional hummus with a heated pita ($8).
The Wine Bar features work by local artists on a rotating basis, and three large high-definition TVs keep clients updated on the happenings of football, an Australasian bat-and-ball sport that is becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Bide your time with beers and cheers while lounging on a comfortable sitting device, or perch your posterior at the bar, which is frequently flooded by extra-heavy pours. Parking is free with validation.
Yelpers give The Wine Bar a solid four-star average, saying:
- I liked the relaxed atmosphere of this place. They had a great selection of music at the right volume. We sat in the corner on the couches, which added to the mood. Mike and Alex are the owners and the wines they recommended were dead on…It was a phenomenal wine! – Christoper B.
- I loved the artwork, the decor was cozy and the owner was so cool. I have to say this place mixes young and hip with classy. I haven't seen that skillful a pairing of the two since Cheese Nips and Tabasco sauce. – Nikol H.
