If you prefer a wine to be fantasy-forward with subtle notes of surrealism, slip downstairs and through a hidden door (hint: that ivy-covered wall isn’t just a wall) to discover this underground and otherworldly Alice in Wonderland-inspired wine bar and cocktail lounge. The ceiling is festooned with playing cards, hanging umbrellas, and colorful floral creations, while the green walls are dotted with butterflies and teacups. The overscaled booths make the best seats for dipping into the extensive wine list (a variety of flights are available from 4–8pm) or sipping a specialty cocktail, such as the bourbon-based A Clockwork Orange. On weekends the space kicks up more of a club vibe, with DJs and dancing; weeknights, you might catch a jazz combo, tarot readings, or a burlesque show.
