I can't even bring to words how great this wine bar is, the extremely knowledgeable, and well traveled owner, Peter is the very best. Kind, welcoming and passionate about wine, he is involved in the city, and has local art in the Wine bar. A cozy basement "cellar" converted into one of the most warm, intimate and relaxing social environment... More

Went to Happinez when in town in September - had been there first time in May this year. Loved the wine flights, the cheese plates (get the goat cheese - fantastic)! Such a cozy place and a fantastic wine list.

This basement wine bar has a nice selection, sophisticated decor and interesting music. The service from the two at the bar was a little on the cool side but the recommended shiraz ($8) was tasty and the cheese platter with three selections ($10) was surprisingly good. Total with tax and tip was $34 and worth it.

Popped into to this adorable wine bar for wine. Also shared a cheese plate. They have a very cute outdoor patio where you can soak in a little sun while enjoying your wine.

Just a quick walk from the boardwalk area and a must see if you're in the area. The ambiance, wine selection, and conversation were all stellar. The evening passed way too quickly... I can't wait to go back!
