Excellent wine list. Wonderful charcuterie boards and very knowledgable staff to guide you through to a great night. The venue is cool and has very cool, careful curated music that reinforces the entire vibe. Ok, yeah....we're regulars.

This is a great vine bar with with a nice vine selection. I went here twice during my Halifax visit. One evening there was live Jazz music. Great atmosphere as the place is not too big. Nice staff and definitely worth a visit.
