WHY Generous pours of good, modestly priced wines in a very cool Retro Row shop, with $3 glasses on Thursdays and often-terrific live music.
WHAT Almost every afternoon and evening, bartender Evan mans the small, living-room-like wine bar in back of the store, and regulars stop in to ask him what he’s pouring and to hear what he’s playing on the stereo. For just $12, he’ll pour you a taste of four wines and give you a smart, succinct explanation of each.
WHO Pre-dinner wine sippers and people coming out of the Art Theater across the street, looking for a place to sip and talk.
