If all wine bars were like Amelie, we’d go to a lot more wine bars. In addition to the excellent Happy Hour (which lasts until 7pm and includes a $12 flight and a few food options), this place often has live music and always has a good crowd. Come for a date or to catch up with a friend, and either way, get the pistachio crusted goat cheese.
