Denver is notorious for sucking down and spitting out wine bars, so it's something of an accomplishment for an independently owned enoteca to last more than a hot minute. Cellar Wine Bar is now verging on three, and during that time, it's uncorked a perfect pairing of ambience, service and quality juice that continues to surprise and delight dow...
Though the conventional nibble on the side of a bold glass of red might be a wedge of manchego or some Sicilian olives, Kings Wine Bar makes a convincing case that tater tots also make for a pretty great coupling. (And if you really can't budge on the cheese thing, it should be noted that the tots come with a gorgonzola-bacon sauce for dipping.)...

Resident musician Nick Greer can be found tickling those iv...

Employees are friendly and eager to assist with any wine-related questions or recommendations—without a drop of snootiness. SeaLegs features a seaso...
The regions, the varietals, the vintages—the world of wine can be intimidating. Not at Belly, where the eclectic by-the-glass list is organized around lighthearted headings (like the Grease-themed “Pink Ladies” for rose, and “Beauty School Dropout” for chilled reds) that belie expertly chosen selections from co-owner and wine director Liz Vilard...
