Wine Bars Are Popping Up All Over – Here’s Why


There are some people who wish they could bring a little glitz and glam to what they believe to be fairly mundane lives. They accessorize a bit with their wardrobe, add little touches of color & texture to their home décor, and they try to socialize in hip places like wine bars.

If you happen to have heard a scratched record sound just now, you wouldn’t be alone in being curious. In fact, It might not make any sense to you because the juxtaposition of wine in a bar setting just seems a bit too extreme. Bars are all about staying loose and having a cold mug of domestic beer. Yet, it might surprise you to know that wine bars have been a thing for quite a while.

As with most things that are a little different, the idea was born out a way to marry things that people love into one, cohesive unit. Everyone loves the convivial aspect of a bar, but they are also looking to keep things little more refined. Sipping on wine is about as cool & classy as it gets for many people. It was only a matter of time before the notion of a wine bar became popular.

But why are there so many of them? As with most things, there can be too much of a good thing, but wine bar proprietors have found the right mix by doing this:

Defined Sophistication with A Laid-Back Feel – Though most think of wine as being only for the super-rich or first-class elites, it really is an Everyman elixir. It’s refined in terms of the process of making it & enjoying it, but it doesn’t mean that it can’t be a social centerpiece.

Combined Rustic with Chic – Wine is an “old-world” product that fits beautifully with in any setting. Wine bars happily combine elements of rustic & chic decorations to create a nod to wine and its social & historical merit.

Made A Learning Experience Of It All – Patrons are genuinely interesting in learning about wine, and this pertains to how best to drink it, store it, and pair it with food. Wine bars are more than happy to bring this knowledge to the people.

Invited A Group Atmosphere – Too many places looking for a first-class model are quick to keep numbers from getting too big. Wine bars know that business model excludes too many folks, and that means less profit.

Major Players in Helping Support Local Businesses Grow Audience – Many local wineries & artisan food producers haven’t scored major distribution in larger venues. Luckily, many wine bars are quick to want to share local wines and fine foods with their customers because it really hammers home the idea of keeping things local & supporting local business all the way around.

Wine bars are nothing new, but their approach to business certainly is a breath of fresh air. Where many might have written off the idea of making wine seem easily accessible to the “Regular Joe” in us all too lowbrow, these settings understand that they want to invite the masses to know more about wine and why there is such a global appreciation for it.
