Wonderful wine tastings.
I went last night with a friend because we had purchased Scoop St. certificates for a wine tasting. We paid $10 each and were able to taste 5 different wines and sample a plate of olives, cheeses, pita and hummus. The sommelier, Ivan, was wonderful and offered his opinions, facts and answers to our questions about the different wines. We sat downstairs, where its fairly dark, but plenty cozy. They offer their wine tastings Wed and Thurs evenings from 7-9 and they are usually $25 and include a glass of your choosing in addition. I love the West Village, so this is a great location and I would definitely recommend. Ask for Ivan!
West Village bar with an apartment-style layout..
Located in a narrow space packed with accents (like an antique chandelier, iron art fencing and ornate mirrors), Entwine feels like a Parisian flat--a perfect fit with its classy residential surroundings. Decor aside, this bar’s strength lies in its versatility. The owners--one Turkish, one Georgian and one Russian--have curated a vast selection of wine (including Burgundies and Sancerres in a sleek wine dispenser) offered alongside creative cocktails like the Primrose (black raspberry vodka, rosewater, muddled berries and ginger ale). Carved into separate areas--downstairs, ground level and a garden--Entwine maximizes space while providing patrons the luxury of choosing where to sit.
