Bacchanal Fine Wine & Spirits

Must visit wine bar with outdoor jazz

Red Heart Full_3x.png

Walk into what looks like a corner wine shop and pick out your bottle of wine along with some meats and cheeses for your charcuterie board. Then head out back to the beautiful, plant filled courtyard hung with string lights and snag a table to take in the live music they have here seven days a week. If you haven't had dinner yet, hey have a full menu of delicious food that they serve out of a window in the back. If this sounds magical, its because it is. This local favorite gets crowded on weekends later in the evening so don't be surprised if there is a line to get in. If you can't find seating outside, they also have indoor seating upstairs.
