Sometimes you just want to sit back and relax with a nice glass of vino, and that’s where all the great Los Angeles wine bars come into play.
Thankfully, wine bars in Los Angeles run the gamut from the most budget-friendly casual neighborhood dens to high end joints where the average bottle probably costs more than your first car. And LA wine bars are spread all over the city, so finding one no matter where you are in this expansive metropolis should not be hard.
City Sip over in Echo Park is a great place for grape amateurs to expand their mind and their palates without starving their wallets, while Covell over in always-trendy Los Feliz combines a sophisticated and welcoming atmosphere with an in-depth education in wine. Barbrix in Silver Lake is a chic little spot that specializes in Mediterranean-inspired small plates and a large selection of wines from around the globe. And even folks way across town in Santa Monica can get in on the LA wine bar action, from the very popular wine bar/shop/artisanal deli Venice Beach Wines to the vibrant and unpretentious social scene at Bodega Wine Bar in Santa Monica.
Wine bars in Los Angeles truly abound, so sip, sift, and swirl your way towards one now. After all, anytime is a good time for wine!
