Air’s Champagne Parlor
review by Deanna Gonnella

Cozy into the jewel-toned velvet seats of this intimate Greenwich Village Art Deco boîte and get ready to explore the world of bubbles with reckless abandon. Owner Ariel Arce put together a menu that doubles as an educational crash course on the grapes, styles and region of Champagne, ...Read the full review

Ordinaire
review by Barbara Haimes

This Grand Lake–neighborhood wine bar and shop is where the cool kids like to hang and talk natural wine with the young, very passionate staff. The 15 wines by the glass change almost daily, as most are from small producers or from small cuvées, like the “orange” sauvignon ...Read the full review

Whitechapel
review by Erik Tennyson

For a religious experience with gin, make the pilgrimage to Whitechapel in the Tenderloin. Named after the famous East End district where “mother’s ruin” poured freely while Jack the Ripper was lurking in the alleyways, the space looks like a tube ...Read the full review

The Riddler
review by Barbara Haimes

There’s been a line out the door since Jen Pelka opened this Hayes Valley Champagne bar in early 2017, backed by an all-female team of investors and managers. The corner space looks like a Parisian wine bar with its wide windows, gold-leaf ceiling and marbled table tops. Grab some ...Read the full review

Petit Marlowe
review by Geoff Millar

Oysters are the main event at this new SoMa wine bar, alongside chef Jennifer Puccio’s menu of French bistro classics, like deviled eggs and beef tartare. To match, Jennifer Gomez has crafted a Champagne-heavy wine list with other oyster-ready pours, from Yuste Manzanilla and Urionde Txacoli to Lapeyre ...Read the full review

Anina
review by Erik Tennyson

From the team at Brass Tacks, Anina opened its doors nearby in March 2017, just in time to take advantage of the weather with what may be the most agreeable outdoor patio of any bar ...Read the full review

ABV

If you’re looking for mezcal, stop by this Mission District bar. Ryan Fitzgerald, one of ABV’s founding partners, is the brand ambassador for Del Maguey, and has gathered an impressive range of the brand’s mezcals, as well as a careful selection of Tequila, rare Scotches and ...Read the full review

Cadet
review by Elaine Chukan Brown

Colleen Fleming and Aubrey Bailey’s downtown Napa wine bar has become a winemaker hangout, thanks to a by-the-glass list that mixes old-school California wines (Ridge Cabernet), wine-geek specialties (Olga Raffault Chinon) and easygoing quaffables (Txakoli rosé). For food, there’s prosciutto and other charcuterie sliced to order, along ...Read the full review

Trick Dog
review by Erik Tennyson

Home base of the Bon Vivants, the cocktail and design firm run by Josh Harris and Scott Baird, Trick Dog is as famous for its menu design and conceptual hijinks as for the cocktails themselves. The current menu, a Dr. Seuss–inspired ...Read the full review

Aldo Sohm Wine Bar
review by Tara Q. Thomas

The best post-theater option for great wine and a quick bite, thanks to Aldo Sohm’s ever-changing, far-ranging by-the-glass selection and the Austrian-accented charcuterie tower.

Achilles Heel
review by Zach B. Siegel

This neighborhood bar, from Brooklyn restaurateur Andrew Tarlow, excels in simple pleasures. John Connolly’s wine list favors the rustic and the versatile, shining a light on unheralded French wines, from Aveyron to Vin de France, most well under $100. Chef Lee Desrosiers’ menu, which changes daily, re-imagines the possibilities ...Read the full review
