Tel: 971 4319 8088's insider take:

This popular, dimly lit wine bar is primarily patronized by vinophiles, banking boys, and the pretty girls trying to attract them. The well-heeled crowd make a beeline here after work, meaning the buzz—helped by the selection of more than 500 Old and New World wines—starts early and carries on through the night (last orders are at 2:30 a.m.). The antipasto platters are great for sharing, providing just enough sustenance to soak up the alcohol but not enough to make a meal of it. Avoid this branch on weekends, when it can be deathly quiet; go midweek to soak up the local vibe. On weekends visit its sister branch at the Madinat Jumeirah Souk, which has the added attraction of a canal-side location.
