Always visit here for a catch up with friends. Never too busy, never too loud and crowded. Hidden gem, plain in sight. I’ve passed it many a time but never noticed until a friend recommended. Love the authentic, rustic, old school decor. Beautiful wine selection...More

This wine bar is well worth a visit. Small and retro. Something a bit different...welcoming, quirky and drinks are well priced.

Very interesting place for a wine. Bar is lovely and take you back in time. Barman could be more outgoing, no small talk strictly business with him. Enjoy it.

What a lovely quirky little place! I was here recently. It serves a nice variety of wines and it’s very retro. There’s a cosy fireplace that adds to the atmosphere. It’s definitely like stepping back in time. Well worth a visit!

Great place. Chilled atmosphere. Calm interior. Wines and bottled beers. Little garden out the back which we did not sit in as the rain was pouring down.

Gorgeous red wine (we had a bottle of the Portillo Malbec), quick service, cosy atmosphere, good location off Oliver Plunkett Street. A really lovely little bar that I would highly recommend.
