Well I finally made a visit to Parea Wine Bar and came away with mixed feelings- but mostly positive. Loved that happy hour is until 7PM, every night including weekends! What a deal- the $10 flight of wines + appetizer definitely will bring me back again. Most disappointing was the lack of variety in the menu items. I know this is a wine bar and not a restaurant, but I was still hoping for more of a solid menu- seems as though there isn't a full kitchen in the restaurant so most items offered are cold. We had the pizetta, which honestly tasted like a pita bread pizza that I could've made myself (even with my limited cooking abilities). The bruschetta was much more fulfilling and I wish we'd tried the cheese plate.
Anyway, on to the wine. Huge selection and prices seem to be reasonable. Friendly staff and they've made some substantial changes to the place since it was Oxygen Bar- nice ones too! I liked the tables with the low seating and the nook in the front by the window.
