Located adjacent to the Cresent City Craft House, the Wine Rack offers a good place to kill time while waiting for a table. Mostly focused on grapes and whiskey, you must head to the back of the store to find a limited selection of craft beers and a growler station. While small it does not cater to the Bud Light market. A couple of local cans from West Sixth compete with brands such as Evil Twin for space. The prices for growlers seem competitive with other spots. If I lived in the neighborhood I might stop in from time to time to get one filled.
This is not a destination to go out of your way to visit but given its proximity to the bar next door deserves a quick peek. Maybe you’ll find something interesting. In the worst case scenario it kills a few minutes while waiting for a table next door.

Ambiance is nice, clean, wood intensive design with wooden racks. Well lit and professional. Service is one man, I believe his name is John Johnson, the owner. A very nice man who knew every customer by name while I was there. He also said his beer selection is dependent upon customer request. Excellent! Selection of around 40 mostly craft beers: Goose Island, Schlafly, St. Bernardus, Rogue, Stone and others. Nothing too rare, but something for most. He also had a nice selection of cheeses, pastas and pizzas to choose from. Food and beer prices were about right for quality. A good stop, though I probably wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
