Sip, Relax and Unwind at Vancouver's Best Wine Bars

There's no shortage of wine bars in Vancouver where you can kick back and relax and these wine bars will start you off in the right direction. Whether you're after something more quiet and casual or lively and fancy, there's a seat with your name on it.

Salt Tasting Room brought charcuterie to Vancouver many years ago and has been a staple in the wine and cheese scene. Located on Blood Alley, these spaces are cozy and anything but ominous as the name Blood Alley (the street they're on) give off. Choose wines by the glass or enjoy one of their flights.

Sometimes you need a little (okay, a lot) of glam in your life and the Rosewood Hotel Georgia's Prohibition is the place to go. The beautiful space sets the stage for a gorgeous evening of wine, live music and good times with friends or your special someone. Start the night off with a half-glass of champagne before moving onto a full pour.

Allow yourself to sink into the lush velvet chairs in front of the large fireplace at Bacchus Piano Lounge while you sip a glass of wine and listen to the smooth tunes of the piano.  The wine menu is extensive with plenty to choose from.

 All of these places offer wine by the glass so why not sample a few in a night?
