Vino Venue, the brainchild of Atlanta Wine School founder Michael Bryan, corrals a restaurant, culinary school, and wine shop—making it a wine emporium under one roof. With its 200 wines by the bottle, 50 wines by the glass, wine accessories, and a mouthwatering menu of small plates and entrees to share, Vino Venue ensures that oenophiles don’t have to look any further to satisfy their wine needs.
And that includes their culinary-education needs. Atlanta Wine School classes continue at Vino Venue in a new demonstration kitchen and event room, where a crack team of chefs and sommeliers host private parties ranging from one-on-one wine classes to socials and mixers.
Inside the cozy wine emporium, guests gather around rustic communal tables constructed of 1850s barn wood to enjoy a house-made menu featuring braised beef with potato-leek waffles, lobster mac 'n' cheese, and a cheese and charcuterie list that rivals a Parisian bistro. The dishes pair with an extensive selection of 32 wines from self-dispensing machines, available in increments of tastes, half glasses, or full glasses. That may be part of what's earned the restaurant so much acclaim. Gayot.com named them one of the 10 best wine bars in the United States.
