Best Wine Bars 

The Hidden Vine

This cozy basement wine bar is hidden indeed, reachable from steep stairs behind a door in the short alley called Cosmo Place or from the lobby of the Fitzgerald Hotel at 620 Post. The snug, low-ceilinged space feels a bit like a traditional British club, with a fireplace and comfy armchairs and sofas, as well as several tables with straight-back chairs. About 30 wines by the glass are on offer, from a cellar containing about a hundred varieties. Every month the Hidden Vine highlights a different international region, with interesting flights of three or four tastes each. The knowledgeable owner-servers are happy to chat with you about their list. Nibbles include delicious smoked duck breast, assorted cured meats and local cheeses (served with chutney), and chocolate truffles.
