Stopped by for an after dinner drink. The bartender knew his wines and recommended a lovely, chewy mouthful (which I can't remember what it was). It would be more of a trendy place for the city. The bartender was sharing his favourite places to dine and drink which were also helpful. If you want a libation stop in here. They... More

My wife and I stumbled across the place whilst in Halifax. Enjoyed it so much we went back three nights in a row. Great wine and the cheese and chocolate were fantastic. Very friendly staff.

My friend and I went here for a few hours and sat at the bar! Our bartender, Mr. Rankin, (I forget his first name) was very customer oriented, informative (knew alot about the bar, the interesting places the tables, bar to etc came from) and turned us on to some awesome wines! A great experience and I would return!

A small spot that is very relaxing. It's not really a place to go for a meal, enjoyed stopping for a drink with a few small eats.

Went after dinner for red wine and cheese. the waiter asked what we liked and then got us a 3 wine flight and a small 3 cheese board. Great choices by the friendly waiter. A great way to end our evening.

Live music, low lighting and wine for the win. Small space does affect the comfort level, patrons may brush against each other as the try to find seats.

My spouse and I had a lovely evening here - the service, the candle light, the decor, the delicious beaujolais all combined for a great date night. Next time we're in town we'll try the charcuterie. Highly recommend!
