This is really a great place. Was staying over by the Convention Center and found this place by accident. Spent a few hours there sampling various wines and even an Irish Whisky (Jameson Caskmates). The guy working there was knowledgeable and friendly. Great way to...More

We had walked past W.I.N.O. several times, since they opened, and it was always too early – they were always closed. So, on a rainy June afternoon, I made my way from the Hilton Riverside to W.I.N.O., just before 2:00pm. Fortunately, there was an awning,...More

This bar implements a great concept in which you log the portions of wine that you serve yourself with a microchip that is provided at the bar, which is read when you wish to pay up. There is a very wide variety of choice, and...More

This place has become a go-to for us when we want wine in New Orleans (and who doesn't!). Tons of wine on tap to try and sample. They also have some good small plates to snack on while you sip.

A bit outside the super crowded areas of Nola, you can enjoy a cozy wine bar with good selection of red and whites. Some more champagne would be appreciated. Can't miss the cheese and salami cutting table. A nice spot.

might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
