About a year ago, a friend took me to Vintage Wine Bar (on 13th between Sansom and Walnut). It's a quaint, laid back venue with exposed brick and a friendly vibe; not pretentious at all, as some wine bars can be. Vintage offers a nice variety of food in addition to their extensive but not overwhelming bar menu. This summer has been a hot one, so I've been enjoying their house-made sangria! They're only $6 during happy hour, and beyond refreshing.
