Best Of 2015: Wine Bar
Swirl is really everything you could ever want in a wine bar. A cozy environment. Co-owner and resident Sommelier Sharon Palmer, who will pour you a glass or serve you the bottle of your choice (or hers, if you ask for a recommendation). Tasty food, like flatbreads and cheese boards and the like. Craft beer and fun cocktails. And events from Blind Tasting classes and live music to art shows and Lasagna Dinner With a Movie nights. Cheers! — Kirsten Akens
Located behind Swirl Wine Emporium, which will soon shrink a bit to make room for more bar space (and expanded tapas), your favorite wine bar serves simple but good meat-and-cheese platters, with rare and unique drink options. The parlor room and patio equally charm.
