When holding a wine glass, one has the option to hold it by the stem or the bowl; unless it is on fire, in which case holding it requires a 6-foot-long mechanical grabber. Grab your glass with a naked hand with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of wine, cheese, charcuterie, and more at Veritas Wine Bar in Dupont Circle.

Veritas offers more than 70 domestic and international wines in a sleek, modern environment, accompanied by a large selection of cheese and charcuterie. Order by the glass ($7–$17) or board a wine flight, such as the Mambo Italiano ($15) or Tour de France ($16), for a three-wine tongue adventure. Veritas ensures satisfied sipping by serving wines using temperature-controlled wine dispensers. For first-date sharing, guests can pair a bottle of wine (starting at $27) with a cheese tray customized from blue, goat, cow, and sheep selections ($12 for three) or a charcuterie duo ($12) of cured or pâté meats. Put the top hat on a handsome evening with a triumvirate of chocolates ($6).

Veritas's cozy space is adorned with deep red walls, exposed brick, and dark hardwood floors. This Groupon can also be used during happy hour, when giddy patrons can select wines by the glass on special ($5–$6) and exclaim, "This happy hour makes me happy, even more happy then when I taught myself how to perform my own dental procedures!"


Veritas Wine Bar has been featured by the Washingtonian several times, as well as in the DC City blog. Zagat gave it "very good" ratings, and Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average:

  • Great selection in general. They pretty much covered everything and also had a good choice of blends. – Taylor, as told to Alejandro Salinas, Washingtonian
  • Veritas is a good balance of casual and intimate. The dark lighting sets a somewhat of a swanky tone but the upbeat vibe of the patrons and staff and chatty noise level keeps the mood fun. – Dean, DC City
  • The bartenders: I haven't met a single one yet who isn't incredibly knowledgeable as well as fun and interesting to talk to, whether about wine, music, travel, or the game on TV. – enterthephil, Zagat member

Veritas Wine Bar

Evocative aromas ascend from swirling chalices at Veritas Wine Bar, a brick-walled lounge where sommeliers pair more than 70 wines by the glass with a menu of cheese and charcuterie plates. Grape-infused elixirs gush from a temperature-controlled tap system, ensuring uniform sips unmarred by sudden climate shifts or clumsy fire breathers. Reds and whites from Italy, South Africa, and New Zealand slosh into individual glasses or join forces to create flights. Globetrotting artisanal cheeses fall under four categories—blue, cow, goat, and sheep—and deliciously mingle with charcuterie selections. Sippers can scrawl an appetizing epilogue across the evening’s feast by noshing on chocolate morsels laced with slow-cooked caramel or pistachio butter, which silence petulant sweet teeth without preemptively donning a bedtime retainer.
