Located in the historical U Street Corridor of Washington DC, Vinoteca Wine Bar & Bistro has embraced the rich history and vibrancy of the neighborhood; while maintaining its own contemporary character and personality.

Housed in a converted row house, you are met with a stylish décor and ambiance that draws you in like a fly to honey. Seating is very "urban" meaning close proximity to other tables; yet most feel comfortable and relaxed in that the casual vibe that envelopes the lounge and bar. However, with summer approaching, I must say that my favorite place to unwind would be the patio or The Plaza; an outdoor bar & bocce court that is the perfect setting for happy hour.

Happy Hour is every day from 5-7pm, and features a discounted food menu and 20 wines by the glass for $5.00. The menu is a great mixture of food types; with my favorite being the lamb with feta & roasted peppers & bison with gruyere & caramelized onions sliders (e.g. choice of two with salad - also beef, pulled pork, crab cake and veggie burger).

With over 80 wine selections to satisfy your palate, Vinoteca (e.g. which in Spanish translates to "a collection of wines") offers bottle service, by the glass, and signature flights allowing you the chance to sample a variety of wines from different regions.

On Sunday's from 8pm-11pm, you can take in Flamenco song and dance; on Tuesday's from 7-8:30pm they offer wine classes; and on any given week there could be a charity fundraiser.

Owner Paul Carlson has created the perfect place to relax with a great wine, sample some modern dishes; and awaken the flavor of your senses - sight, smells, taste and sound.

We've all done the wine thing, but without taking a wine class or reading a book, how much do we really know about how to describe what we're drinking?
