A nice glass of vino isn't just something you sip for to get buzzed. It's poetic in a sexy way. It's a moment connecting with history and making some history while you're at it. On National Wine Day (yes, that's a thing), I decided I'd celebrate by doing some wine research- that is, researching wine related things while I enjoy some wine. Thrillist published a list of the 21 top wine bars in the country and I thought I'd share some that look the best in some American cities with poppin' nightlife and busy streets from East to West.
Los Angeles, Ca
Covell is said to be where the elites (when it comes to adult drinks) get together for a post-work round. Apparently, the 150 or so wines may make a decision quite hard, but the owners and staff will help you. The food menu is progressive, not traditional, but is said to be flavorful and tasty.
Lagniappe looks like one of those intimate yet classy wine bars you'd stumble upon in Tuscany, which is most definitely a good thing. It has a vintage feel and countless wines, a little less luxurious than the other places on this list.
Purple Cafe and Wine Bar has an epic tower of wines in the center of the large, upscale warehouse-style establishment. The pairings for every item on the menu add to the dramatic allure of the atmosphere.
Vine and Tap has a hand selected list of wines by the bottle from several regions around the globe. The atmosphere invites a friendly casual crowd into an upscale, classy place.
New York, Ny
Pearl & Ash, while more of a restaurant, often becomes a soiree of late night discussion between well-rounded, successful vino fans. The 70+ page wine list is famous for its obscure, eclectic wines that'll make you feel as hipster as the city itself.
