We love this place. Hope it reopens soon


The wife and I stumbled into this place on our way to a different place around the corner. We never made it to the other place and we loved this little bar. Friendly bartenders with the new bartender making excellent traditional margaritas. Everyone who stopped in was very friendly. A solo acoustic guitar player was exceptional, playing awesome songs, awesomely. He added to the atmosphere. Relatively full bar, but limited beer selection; just a few cans and bottles. I believe the place is under new management since although they had a nice selection of wines, it didn't necessarily seem like a wine bar in any traditional sense.


My fav part is the owner goes out of his way to say hi to the patrons, offer advice and .. has a great wine selection!

Great wine selection by the glass, with $2 off per glass during happy hour. Gets busy on theater nights, but staff is knowledgeable, wine selection is great, either to drink there by the glass, by the bottle or retail bottles to go. Definitely my go-to wine bar in downtown Galveston/The Strand.


We love this place. They have a ton of wines by the glass, and will let you try something before you commit to a glass. They also have a lot of wine by the bottle that is reasonable priced. They have all day happy hour on Sunday so all glasses of wine are $2 off. They also have a newish guy working there that is very friendly and makes great recommendations. You can also order food from the restaurant next door and eat it there while you drink wine. We try to come here at least once every time we visit the island.

We stopped by for a glass of wine this evening. Ended up enjoying a couple each..3 of us. Prosecco, sparkling rose, Pinot noir and a GREAT merlot. The atmosphere is excellent, warm, friendly and impeccably clean. David is a great host. We enjoyed visiting with him. Husband says he has the cleanest restrooms he's ever seen in a public establishment. lol. Can't say enough good things about this place. If you like wine and friendly company...this is a place for you. Thank you David for your hospitality!

Very cute and trendy wine bar where you can order from a menu that has pages and pages of choices. The owner is super friendly and makes good suggestions based on what you want. It's small so it tends to be a bit loud when full but definitely a must when your on the island.

In Galveston for vacation and came here one night and it is absolutely awesome. Quaint little wine bar with a friendly owner who gave liters of advice and let us try samples before we ordered. Would stop again for sure if I'm the area again. If on vacation and a wine lover or even casual drinker make sure to stop in

Stopped by this little, quaint shop to find they were closed despite the hours that were listed posted said they opened at 1pm. Disappointed we didn't get to check it out. Hoping we can return again.
