This wine bar is playfully modern with its wine-preservation machines, red-tiled pillars, and low-hanging globe lights. Young professionals come in droves on weekends to sample the approximately 100 wines, most of which are available by the taste, glass, or bottle. Five flights ($14 to $30), with whimsical names such as Italian Threesome and Forget Sideways, offer the chance to try three like-minded wines. You can get selected glasses for $5 Monday through Friday from 5 to 7, but Sundays are the most fun: A flamenco dancer works the room, and all Spanish and South American bottles are half off.
