A world away from the traditional image of wine bars as stuffy and formal, Club Street Wine Room and Corduroy Palace are two new kids on the block, which have opened in the past week, that are doing things very differently.
Wines are still the star of the show, but you won’t find yourself intimidated by the variety on offer, or out of place if you can’t describe the tasting notes after drinking a glass.
