A cosy neighbourhood bar in the downtown area. You can sit at the bar or relax in one of the cubicle-like sections, like small living rooms furnished with sofas and tables. Itís more of a wine bar than a restaurant or beer destination but it was friendly and welcoming. There are six or seven taps (we had Aviator Hog Wild IPA and Breckenridge Vanilla Porter). There wasnít a beer list but the wine list was printed on the label of a wine bottle at the bar - a novel idea, I thought.

The rating is somewhat low when you evaluate this as a beer place. As a bar or hangout, itís really nice, with friendly stay good food, a nice patio, and an expansive wine list. The beer selection is fairly limited to a half dozen NC beers, all of which you can easily find elsewhere. I wouldnít go here specifically to have a beer, but Iíd have a good time if I were there regardless.

Iíve been here a few times, but have never reviewed it. Went there last night for my birthday, so letís remedy this. First off, I love the atmosphere of this place. I really dig the vibe, and I love the outdoor patio section (which is where we sat). The service every time I have been there has been timely and accommodating. The food has always been excellent as well. Two of the times I have been there (including last night) I have ordered one of their duck dishes. Both were excellent and perfectly cooked. No worries on the food end. As far as the beer selection goes, this is much more of a wine-forward place, and they admit that. At one time their beer selection may have rivaled some of the best in the city, but no more. There was a few from Highland, SA, SN, and a smattering of some of the cheaper European beers. Not that great. In lieu of the selection, I went with a nice Merlot instead. Not the best place for beer, but a great place for atmosphere, food, and wine.

Wow. This place is really cool. Love the urban eclectic vibe. And the backyard garden area is very enjoyable. Service was a bit on the slow side, even though it was not that busy, but I didnít mind that. Very cute wine menues. The beer list is not all that extensive, but the prices are very reasonable - only $3.75 for a bottle of 90 minute! The food was very good, and had a mediterranian flare. The entrees were pricy, but the wraps, salads, and flats were under $10. A terrific place to go eat and drink on a fun date, but not really to rate.

I gave this bar a 7 on selection because, although it does not have a wide selection of beers, it does have some great wines (at the same time, this is not ratewine.com so I didnít feel it was appropriate to give a higher score than that). The ambiance is good with a nice mix of young professionals, college students and older folks. Live music adds to the atmosphere and there a nice outdoor seating area in back. Can be a bit crowded.

Didnít even look at the beer list. The wine list was solid, the food was very good, the service was great.
The bar was packed. A grad school type of crowd if you asked me, had some artsy feel - of course its Winston Salem.
I liked it. Iíll definitely be back to check out the beer list and enjoy the food an atmosphere.

This is my favorite bar in Winston. Good funky bands Thurs-Saturday, nice knowledgeable staff though they are often SLOW. It takes a long time to get more drinks unfortunately. Some nights is either a really young crowd and other nights a really old crowd, so thats something to consider. It doesnít have the greatest selection of beer though. some interesitng ones in bottles and what you would expect locally on tap. but its a really really nice place to grab a bite, have a drink and take a date or catch up with a friend.

Catering to the upper middle class crowd, 6th and Vine is primarily a wine bar with a nice beer list including a few Belgians and local brews. Hoegarten was on tap the last time I went, as well as Salem Gold from the nearby Foothills brewery (worth a visit as well). Their appetizers and snacks are the real draw here (try the hummus platter). Comfy couches are available for long conversational sessions.

Really interesting and hip place to hang out. Too bad I only discovered it the weekend of my graduation. The tap list is pretty small and weak. The bottle list has some decent beers and for a decent price. I bought some Weihenstephaner and Bigfoots there. the outside garden area in the back is really neat but cramped. Service was quite bad for a catered event of ~40 people.

This place is usually referred to as "the wine bar." The ambiance is more of an upscale, jazz and wine scene, located near the arts district. They have a large selection of wines and a pretty knowledgable staff. I havenít had any of the food, but I havenít heard any complaints either. There are a couple TVs usually tuned to whatever game is on, and there is live music almost every night. The bar itself is about 30 feet long, and thereís another utility bar out back on the patio for busy summer nights.
This has got to be one of the only bars in Winston-Salem that doesnít serve Bud or Miller, but they do have a couple semi-macros like Corona. I didnít notice the beer list until recently, and I have to say Iím impressed. While there are only 6 taps, there are about 50 bottled selections including a few Flying Dogs, Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn, Abita, and others, and some higher alcohols, like a Chimay lambic or two. Iím really going to have to start going here more often.
