Whether you’re thinking of starting one of your own or you enjoy going to one, it pays to know the characteristics of an ideal wine bar. There’s a lot more to a successful drinking establishment than simply drinking and we’ve come up with a list of what we look for in a wine – and really any other type of – bar.
Things that make an ideal wine bar include:
1. Atmosphere. This includes everything from the theme, the aesthetics, the sound and even the arrangement of the floor. Typically bars that go through services like Cable.tv/direct-tv/ have access to all those great cooking and travel channels which set the ambiance for a great evening.
2. Location. Normally, people don’t like attending bars that are some “hole in the wall” or far out of the way – they like to feel like there’s a living breathing world outside of the bar. Location is extremely important and the bar should be located in the middle of the action – not outside of it.
3. Selection. Do you know how many different kinds of wines there are? Literally, thousands. Some made using a single grape and some made using more than just grapes. The diversity of wine matches the diversity of people’s tastes so having a wide selection is extremely important.
