Sometimes instead of a fancy meal or a crowded restaurant, you just want something simple and light in an establishment with a nice atmosphere, simple yet tasty food, and most importantly, good wine. The perfect place is of course a wine bar. There are several wine bars on Long Island, NY to choose from. Here is a short list of some the wine bars on Long Island which are perfect for enjoying a nice evening of wine with friends, family, or on a date.
The quaint, picturesque town of Northport in Suffolk County is home to a number of fine restaurants and unique shops. The town also features one of the more popular wine bars on Long Island, the Northport Tasting & Wince Cellar. This wine bar serves over thirty types of wine, and has over a hundred different types of wine available for purchase. The Northport Tasting and Wine Cellar hasn’t been around very long, but it has quickly established itself, thanks in part to its great selection of wine ranged at various prices, starting very inexpensive. This enables many to enjoy the luxury and atmosphere of the wine bar, which also regularly has live entertainment.
