I do not see a lot of advertisements on this spot, actually this is where I found out about it. The moment you walk in to the store, you think to yourself, oh no, another ""retail wine bar"" which we all know are pretty to look at but not very fun to enjoy wine in. Then you see this small green sign that says Bodega Bar. I walked in last night and was floored. Maybe 80 or so people relaxing to lounge music in this oasis cave with dark woods and lit with candles. The house wines were as good as most of the premium wines in Restaurants with even better selections that didn't make you cringe at the prices. I even saw a wine I had seen at Cru for $55 that they were selling for $25. I guess you can get the best of both worlds at my new favorite hangout. Talking to a member of the staff (Wendy) and the owner (Amir), it gets busy on the weekends but during the weeks it is a more relaxed atmosphere. I had a cheese board and a fantastic Super Tuscan that Amir helped pick out. I will be back and often, I can't believe I have been here this long and did not know about this place.
Pros: Ambiance, Friendly Staff, Huge Fine Wine Selection, Expert Staff
Cons: It was hard to find, you almost have to know exactly where you are going, maybe thats a positive
