Don’t worry about the fact that you can’t pronounce the name of this place, and get yourself a drink. This Soho wine bar offers about 25 wines by the glass, and can suit lots of different situations - whether you want to roll up to the bar solo, sit one-on-one at a table, or reserve a semi-private room for a larger group. Try to get here during Happy Hour (which ends at 6pm during the week and 4pm on weekends) for $5 snacks and $5 off wines by the glass.
