Anyone who ever tells you all wine bars are total snooze fests should be pointed to Bacari PDR. This bright and airy wine bar steps from the beach in Playa Del Rey might not have the most thought-provoking stock of Australian sauvignons in town, but they do have a 90-minute open bar on the weekends where all house wines, sangria, and champagne are free reign for $25 per person. And you know what? Sometimes that’s the kind of party you need in life. Bacari is fun and unpretentious with the kind of drink specials to get any night started off right. See you there.
