“Crush Wine Bar is for Beer Lovers Too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

Crush Wine Bar is an intimate nook located in Market Alley just steps from Central Market. The electric and funky atmosphere complete with cozy couches and plush stools to perch upon, beg you to stay for “just one more drink”. Crush offers a rotation of local and global wines by the full or half glass in a variety of styles, but the true treat is Crush’s unique bottled beer selection. The staff is friendly and knowable and offer advice on beverages and local happenings. While Crush does offer a limited “light fare” menu, the bar is also home to Carr’s Restaurant located below. Prices can be slightly higher than other surrounding venues and it is on the smaller side, so prepare to get cozy with your fellow patrons on a busy night. For budget-conscious visitors, I recommend treating yourself to wine by the half glass, you’ll be happy you came to this unique downtown gem!

“A Stylish, Cozy Hang”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

Located smack-dab in the center of downtown Lancaster, this intimate, colorful wine bar offers an eclectic array of wines to sample while lounging in funky and totally relaxed surroundings. Though small, Crush appeals to a wide range of fun but polite clientele. Its location couldn't be better with several large parking lots nearby and within walking distance to other evening destinations. While convenient on the way to or from another place, Crush could easily provide a cozy, entertaining spot to settle in for the evening.

This is a fantastic little hideaway in Lancaster. Nice wine selection and yummy appetizers. I like the previous reviewer live in DC and was overjoyed to find a nice classy wine bar in lancaster.

$ 8.00 dollars for a half a glass of wine. Appetizers very small and expensive! Go elsewhere...

“The Ultimate Wine Bar Has Great Beer, Too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2009

One a trip to Lancaster this past July, my husband and I -- huge wine lovers -- stumbled upon the newly opened Crush Wine Bar. It is a slice of heaven in Lancaster. It's a small, intimate spot above Carr's Restaurant and next to Central Market. The vibe is trendy but comfortable and we were immediately put at ease by everyone we encountered. (We're from the DC metro area and are frequent visitors to the area's numerous wine bars. I'd pit Crush against the best of them any day.) Great care has been taken with wine selections by the glass. The beer menu is as carefully chosen. Great thought has been given to pairing both the beers and wines with available small plates. And speaking of those small plates, I'm still haunted by the flavors of the risotto croquettes...

This place made us wish that we had scheduled a few more days in Lancaster so that we could return again and again.
