Spin The Bottle Wine Bar
A. O. C. Wine Bar
Description
“A.O.C. is more than just a wine bar—it’s also one of LA’s best restaurants. But thanks to Suzanne Goin’s small plates menu paired with wine director’s Caroline Styne’s curated wine list, this popular joint has quickly become a pioneering and enduring wine bar. There’s a diverse wine selection including a lot of biodynamic and organic wines to choose from on the list of 50 wines by the glass and over 300 bottles.” – PureWow

Augustine Wine Bar
Description

“Augustine has one of the largest wine-by-the-glass selections—and not just in the Valley. They pour wines from all over the world (although the list largely focuses on wines from Europe) and there’s a small but solid rotating food menu including larger plates like a Kurobuta pork chop and steak au poivre with frites. To see what makes Augustine even more special, though, check the blackboard for the daily list of the vintage wines they’re offering by the glass—there are not many other places in the city where you can taste wine from 1990 by the glass.” – PureWow

Bar Bandini
Description

“The dark and industrial interior of this Echo Park neighborhood bar makes this another popular date night spot (or to end a date night—Bar Bandini stays open until 2 a.m.). The wine bar has a good list of all natural wines, including a few on tap from carbonic wines to orange wines. There’s no kitchen but they do host food trucks or food pop-ups on a regular basis.” – PureWow

Bar Covell
Description

Matthew Kaner and Dustin Lancaster, co-owners of this popular Los Feliz bar are happy to talk beer and wine—the focus on small production, off-the-beaten-path old-world and new-world selections from around the globe. There’s also a selection of light-fare snacks. Try Carnivore’s Special Flatbread (rosemary, cheese and cured meats) with a glass—note the proper Riedel stemware for optimal sniffing—of something leathery and French. Go early with a book and sit beneath ironic bookshelves—the literal translation is at once charming and whimsical—supporting vintage cameras. Once the bar fills up, and it does, candles and dim Edison bulbs illuminate a well-dressed neighborhood crowd of food and wine buffs.

Barbrix
Name
Description

Seven minutes from the Greek Theatre & Dodger Stadium, barbrix restaurant and wine bar, is tucked in the crest of the quiet Silver Lake Hills.  Cozy and sleek, and set in a 1940s house, it has a “home away from home” feel with polished wood floors and tables, a comfortable square bar with seating on all sides, a quiet outdoor patio, and special “kitchen counter” seating in where diners can watch chef Don Dickman (formerly of Roccca) whip up his Mediterranean inspired, market driven small plate fare.  Gourmet Magazine says, “Service is particularly friendly and attentive,” Claudio Blotta’s (La Terza & Campanile) wine list is “extremely fairly priced,” and “Blotta and his wife Adria Tennor, have a way of waving hi to every diner as if they’ve known them forever.”

Enoteca 5
Description

“This Pacific Palisades wine bar comes from the husband-and-wife team behind the adjacent Italian restaurant, Cinque Terre West, so expect an Italian-focused wine list by the glass—though they offer California wines by the bottle. There’s a large selection of charcuterie as well as bar bites from pizzette to cheeseburgers. We’re also big fans of the generous happy hour on Tuesdays through Thursdays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.” – PureWow

Good Clean Fun
Description

“Downtown LA’s newest wine bar opened inside Cognoscenti Coffee (which still serves coffee during the day) with mostly outdoor seating. The vibe is fun and approachable, from the hand-drawn wine glasses to the over-the-top names of the menu items like “rawww oysters” and “transcendent white bean hummus”. The wine menu leans heavily but not exclusively on natural wines, and you’ll find anything from Pet Nats to piquettes.” – PureWow

Excerpt

Stop by the bottle shop to grab something to go - or join us on our patio. We put down the only recycled and biodegradable fake grass that is made and created our own oasis here in DTLA. We want you to come, eat, drink, and enjoy your time here because boy has it been a year!
