What a great place to go before or after dinner. We have been here dozens of times and never been disappointed. The owner has brought in a wonderful selection of wine at reasonable prices. Additionally they also have 2 reds and 2 whites on special for 5.00 every day. If you are craving a local brew they have a selection of local craft beers on tap as well. Music starts at reasonable times and features interesting local musicians/bands The room is small and everyone seems to become friends quickly. The crowd is usually a mix of both locals and tourists. The food is very limited but what they do offer is great for an appetizer.

This is my favorite spot in Asheville for a drink. Very small club that serves beer & wine. The main attraction is the music. The owner does a great job of finding eclectic local bands. The windows are normally wide open so it is like being outdoors.

With no cover and inexpensive drinks, 5 Walnut is a place we go every time we go downtown. They only serve a limited selection of food, so plan to stop by before or after dinner. We often plan to go for one or two songs but stay for hours.

This is by far my favorite little spot in Asheville. Nice wine, good music, fun people watching and dancing in a tiny little room. Can't beat it!

We had an hour wait at our restaurant around the corner so we stepped in to 5 Walnut to get a glass of wine while we waited. We ended up ordering the hummus appetizer with our wine and weren't disappointed. It was delicious and generous enough to share between three people. It wasn't overly busy but we did have to wait awhile before someone came over to take our order. We were about to go order at the bar. I think they're just very laid back there. They were setting up for live music when we left which I think would be very very loud in such a small space. We enjoyed our visit; the wine was good and the appetizer delish. The price wasn't too outrageous.

This was recommended to us by a local. The place is small so we ended up sharing a long table with some friends out for a drink. Everyone was, of course, friendly. Cheese plate was so-so. It was disappointing that there was not a fruit spread, fruit, or honey with the four cheeses. Also, not much bread for the amount of cheese on the cheese plate. The $5 wine specials were a great value!
