Bar review – Uva Wine Bar April 19, 2008

Posted by Raul in dining out, Yaletown.

The only thing I would fault Uva Wine Bar with would be that they don’t have hors d’oeuvres. The place is chic (a tad small for a Tweetup but totally fine for a decent glass of wine and/or a drink), the staff are really on the ball, friendly and sweet, and the drinks are good. Fairly decently priced (within what I’d expect in Yaletown, $ 9 for a martini).

Located where it used to be The Dufferin (a queer-friendly bar that was highly valued by the community but ended up being gentrified), Uva is a classic European wine bar. The staff is really friendly and very prompt and attentive. And they know their drinks. One of the managers/owners mentioned that they would get some food (and they are right – they are a wine bar, so really they’re not supposed to have FOOD and drinks, it’s more like they got DRINKS and some food. Basically, the concept is a wine bar (like Europe, you know?)

This is a really interesting picture. Three young women (two of them in party dress), all photographic each other to remember or prove or commemorate that they were there.
