Grapes, much like water, naturally exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and raisin. Imbibe the fruit’s most drinkable state with today’s Groupon: for $16, you get two glasses of wine, a cheese and hors d’oeuvres plate, and entertainment at Vie de Bohème (up to a $32 value). Vie de Bohème, a spirited collaboration between experienced restaurateurs, a wine import/export expert, and a skilled winemaker, creates a convivial atmosphere reminiscent of Bohemian gatherings. Choose from a robust selection of Vie de Bohème wines, then savor two glasses of tipple and mystify fellow diners by transforming a plate of fine cheeses and hors d’oeuvres into a replica of Bob Hope’s forehead. Nearby, a baby grand piano produces mellifluous melodies with the aid of an animated entertainer. Jazz, blues, and classical performers are often featured.

Vie de Bohème
A curving wooden bar and Victorian chairs give Vie de Bohème the ambiance of a 19th-century Parisian bar, one where artists such as Matisse and Toulouse-Lautrec might have passed the time. Visitors lounge in the inviting space as they sip on beer, cocktails, or a selection of wines from around the world or accompany their bartender into the wine library to select bottles to take home or store in a secret wine cellar beneath the Olympic-size whiskey pool. Traditional snacks such as cheese and charcuterie complement drinks, and small plates, like their salmon cakes or pate plate, give way to more substantial dishes such as cassoulet to make sumptuous dinners. Local bands and pianists who play the in-house grand piano often inspire dancing.
