My friends and I went on a Sunday evening. It was a light crowd but close to 20 people doing a painting class. That was cool to watch. We ordered a few cocktails and wine and a large cheese board. The cocktail was bourbon based...More

I was unimpressed with this bar. I had heard about the "San Diego Alice in Wonderland" bar and was quite excited to finally visit, however I was underwhelmed. While you could see hints of the theme throughout, there were only subtle hints. The best part...More

We did the wine tasting after dinner for our bachelorette party and it was so fun! The staff were so friendly and we ended up staying and dancing all night!

The place is definitely out of the way, even in being in downtown San Diego. You have to know where the place is to find it, which makes it that much cooler. The place is really cool. Apparently they have an Alice in Wonderland theme,...More

Inspired by the eclectic lounges of New York's "meatpacking district" and the warm brasseries of turn of the century Paris, Vin de Syrah is complemented by amazing cheeses, desserts, and a friendly wine list. This subterranean yet organic space pays respect to the old but embraces the new world with a contemporary style all its own. See you "down the rabbit hole"!
