Give a warm welcome to NoDa’s newest tenant, a hip and sleek wine bar brought to us by sommelier Jeff Kellogg and designed by our very own Katy Kindred of Milkbread, Hello, Sailor, and Kindred.
Bar a Vins is NoDa’s “neighborhood wine bar & shop,” with a carefully curated selection of natural wines, snacks, and more. The staff consists of sommeliers who are more than happy to share with you their knowledge, which is especially welcoming for people who have heard all about natural wine (it’s been all the rage the past couple of years) but haven’t gotten a chance to explore it. And because Bar a Vins operates as a retail shop, you get to choose from one of their carefully selected wines at retail prices, and drink it in the bar for only an additional $10.
The bar, designed by Katy Kindred, is reminiscent of a hip and dimly lit bar you’d stumble upon in the streets of Europe. White, purposefully chipped walls, warm round lights, and rich wood accents give the place a real lived in, but elegant feel. And the main stand out? The bar itself, where there are tons of wine bottles perched for display, ready to be uncorked. Take a seat at the bar or head to the patio, that gives off a more Brooklyn style appeal in its design.
Bar a Vins is serving up wine by the glass and beer, local and global-styles. As far as food, there’s a small menu of shared plates like olives, fancy caviar, tinned fish, and curated meats and cheeses from different parts of the world. With a menu like that, it’s easy to feel like you’ve stepped into Spain or Scandinavia.
