Lois is a wine bar in the East Village that looks like a hipper and more expensive version of Ikea. And that’s the real draw of this place. That and the decently priced wine that’s all on tap (no bottles here). They also have some bar food like avocado arepas, and if you ever can’t decide between a good wine bar and a place that will Instagram well, come here. This place is both.
