Vancouver’s Best Wine Bars

Having a relaxing night at home after stopping by your favourite beer store in Vancouver can be a great way to pass an evening. Another option, though, is visiting one of the great wine bars in the area. Here are some of Vancouver’s most-loved wine bars.

Salt Tasting Room

This wine bar has a wonderfully cosy atmosphere and specializes in artisan cheeses and small-batch specialty meats. You can build your own custom charcuterie board, and the expert staff will then pair it with a flight of complimentary wines for an unforgettable experience.

The Wine Bar

The Wine Bar is known for having the largest “by-the-glass” selection of wine in Vancouver. This is the perfect spot to visit if you have friends with varied tastes or if you simply want a low-key night of trying new wines.

They offer more than 200 wines on tap and $5 pour specials on Tuesdays, so it’s a great place to make regular visits.

UVA Wine & Cocktail Bar

UVA is located inside the Moda Hotel, but it’s not your ordinary hotel bar. Whether you’re looking for a night of delicious wines, craft beers or top-shelf cocktails, UVA has you covered. They have one of the best selections of wine and liquor in Vancouver.

In addition, they also offer live entertainment, themed flights and an extended happy hour from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. every day.

Brix & Mortar

You could make a trip to the grocery store and then make a separate run to one of the neighbourhood liquor stores in Vancouver, or you could skip the shopping and head to Brix & Mortar instead. While they are technically a restaurant and not strictly a wine bar, they offer some of the best Canadian cuisine and wine pairings in Vancouver.

Their staggering wine list is carefully curated from the finest wines around the world, and they also highlight the choicest wine varieties from vineyards across British Columbia. You can buy a glass, a bottle or an entire wine flight and pair it with a delicious meal.
