Silverlake Wine is more of a wine shop than an actual bar, but we don’t care. These people know wine and they know how to have a good time drinking it. There is a wine tasting bar off to the side, but it fills up quickly, so expect to be standing room only most nights. You can come in here and pick up a bottle any day of the week, but the power move is to come in on a Monday, Thursday, or Sunday for their stumble-home-with-a-neighbor wine tasting events. Ranging from $15-$25 per person (and that includes cheese, hummus, and flatbread), these things fill up fast, so reservations are definitely recommended.

Esters Wine Shop & Bar
Esters in Santa Monica might be known as that place you drink at before eating at Cassia, but this wine bar very much stands on its own.
You’d think that a place like Bar Covell that so thoroughly holds your hand through the ordering process would feel a bit condescending. But as much as LA pretends not to need it, the crowd at Covell every night proves otherwise.
