In some ways, Lelabar is your standard wine bar: candles everywhere, a jazz soundtrack, and an intimidating list of over 200 wines you have to navigate. But there are a few things that make this place a standout. For one, it has an excellent daily Happy Hour during which normally pricey bottles are $28 and glasses are $8. We’re also fans of the u-shaped bar setup - should you be feeling social, it lends itself well to chatting with your neighbors, and to get some ordering advice from the friendly and knowledgeable sommeliers.
