Top Wine Bars of Los Angeles

Bottle Rock
“Buy what you drink” at this combo bar-and-retail-store, where they’ll pop any of their 800-plus bottles with a two-glass commitment. 

Covell
No need to know your Vermentino from your Verdicchio here, where the bartenders’ recommendations come from therapy-like conversations rather than printed lists.

Vertical Wine Bistro
Enjoy Old World wines in Old Pasadena, with vertical (same winery, diff vintage) & horizontal (same vintage, diff winery) flights.

AOC
Entering its second decade, Suzanne Goin’s trendsetting wine-and small-plates bar offers entirely sustainable, organic, or biodynamic wines at its new location. 

Barbrix
An affable Silver Lake oasis with a creative, food-friendly list to match the market-driven Mediterranean menu. 

Corkbar 
California Wine Country recreated in Downtown LA, with over 70 wines to taste on the firelit patio. 

Pour Haus 
It doesn’t get more unpretentious than the bargain prices and board games at this spirited spot.
