Vin de Syrah


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2017 Winner

Location and contact

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"!

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
