Most people in El Prado don’t even realize it’s a wine bar. Essentially serving as the pre-game/post-game drinking hole for Echoplex concertgoers, El Prado can certainly get rowdy at times on the weekends, but ultimately serves as a cool, mellow spot to grab a quick drink during most of the week. They also have a decent beer list and bar snacks (read: hummus) for when you need some nutrients.
