Wine Bar

The Punchdown

At D.C. Looney’s lively natural-wine bar in Oakland’s Uptown neighborhood, you can almost pretend you’re at a natural-wine bar in Paris, with its tiled walls and wooden back bar. The list is French-dominant, to go with the menu (think marrow bones and Comté cheese plates), though you’ll also find plenty of local glou glou from producers like Chad Hinds of Methode Sauvage and Hardy Wallace at Dirty & Rowdy. A small retail room showcases wines available to go.
