Wine Bars Archives - 2 Hollywood Winos

Vino Wine and Tapas Room in Encino, CA & 2010 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

On this beautiful Memorial Day, we would like to remember those who have fallen in service of our country. You will always be honored for your service. And thank you to those who have served and continue to serve today. We are so grateful. On Saturday of this Memorial Day weekend, we decided to check […]

Day Two in Santa Ynez California Wine Country

Jane and I decided to start off our second day in Santa Ynez wine country at our favorite spot in downtown Solvang – Wandering Dog Wine Bar. We are members of their wine club so we were happy to try a few new flights of wine and sample the charcuterie plate to start off our Sunday. […]

Malibu Wines Tasting Room

Winemakers in Malibu, California, are making some great wines in Southern California. It’s not enough to have a beautiful Pacific coast; Malibu has wine-friendly terroir and climate too. So if you’re in Southern California, look to Malibu wines as a great option for local wine choices and even winery visits. Malibu boasts long days of […]

Onda Ristorante, The Mirage Casino, Las Vegas

On the way back from our trip to Zion, we stopped in Las Vegas again. This time, we decided to look for another wine bar in one of the casinos we hadn’t already visited the week before. At that time, we had only found La Cave at Wynn. By the time we tried La Cave, […]

Cork Bar, Downtown LA, CA

Sunday afternoon is always a great time to relax and think about taking a field trip. So we decided to travel outside the Valley for an afternoon and went to downtown LA to try Cork Bar. We noticed that there was lots of street parking, which is always a bonus. Heading inside we noticed that […]

The Mercantile Wine Bar, Hollywood, CA

It’s Sunday and Steve and I are ready to relax in the 90 degree LA weather. We looked around and decided to try The Mercantile Wine Bar in Hollywood, CA. And boy were we glad we did. First they have a huge, free parking lot in the heart of Hollywood. That’s nearly impossible to find. […]

Full of Life Flatbread Kitchen, Los Alamos, CA

Flatbread, as we like to call it, is a welcome counterpoint to the pricey cafes that can be too common in wine country. This down homey restaurant in Los Alamos, California is a great place to relax and enjoy some outstanding pizza in a family style setting. They also have a wine and beer bar up front that is sure to […]

vbw (Venice Beach Wine), Venice, CA

After a quick trip to the J. Paul Getty Museum to view the Herb Ritts photography exhibit, Jane and I decided to revisit a wine bar that I found last year in Santa Monica, CA. Unfortunately, when we arrived we discovered that it had gone out of business-Damn! But thankfully a quick Yelp search located another wine bar only a few […]

Artisan Cheese Gallery, Studio City, CA

We discovered this quaint little place, called the Artisan Cheese Gallery, since it’s just down the street from our favorite bank. As you can imagine they specialize in a blinding selection of not-so-run-of-the-mill cheeses. Jane and I often stop by on the weekends and share a salad and sandwich. If you can believe it the salad […]

City Sip Wine Bar in Los Angeles, CA

We happened upon City Sip during a search for LA wine bars about a year ago. We ventured in and Helen served us a bunch of incredible wine and cheese along with great conversation and we vowed to be back. And we did go back. We went back on Jane’s birthday and then bought a […]
