901 5th Avenue, San Diego CA 92101 (619) 234-4166
Inspired by the eclectic lounges of New York’s “meatpacking district” and the warm brasseries of turn of the century Paris, Vin de Syrah is complemented by amazing cheeses, desserts, and a friendly wine list. This subterranean yet organic space pays respect to the old but embraces the new world with a contemporary style all its own. A much needed “breath of fresh air” for the Gaslamp Quarter, Vin de Syrah offers spirits, unique beer and of course, an array of beautiful wines by the glass. If it’s a dirty martini, a frosty Chimay, or a smooth glass of Bordeaux, this is the parlor for you. Celebrated local designer Michael Soriano completely reinvents the downtown urban lounge with his botanical chandeliers, thick 50 year old wine vines, 12 foot natural wood candlelit tasting table, and semiprivate plush sitting rooms. So whether you like the unique beats of San Diego’s most eclectic djs or the soothing rhythms of live jazz, you’ll find yourself lost in the moment, enjoying the ambiance, music, food and drink that is simply, Vin de Syrah.
