          Friendly staff, clean, COLD! Great location. A bitt run down. Would have given it a better rating but our toilet was broken and sounded like a waterfall despite their attempts to fix it (they did try!)

          Did find a nicer place a few blocks away for cheaper

Inside was a big open room with the bar on one side and the gift shop where you could purchase wine perpendicular to it. We sat down at the bar, the seven of us, and Wayne introduced us to Ted, our wine connoisseur.
