Location Description:

This cozy new bar brings live music and an interesting selection of wine, craft beers, and small bites to Buena Vista. The menu is made up simply of "nibbles," cheeses - including a delicious aged-Manchego - and charcuterie. Nibbles are small tapas that range from marinated olives to thin slices of bresaola topped with greens and mushroom confit. Plump fava beans ($7) served with slender pieces of asparagus and slivers of Manchego cheese are a good choice. So are a wedge of Manchego and goat brie. All cheeses and charcuterie cost $8. There are 20 wines by the glass ($7-$12) and 60 or so by the bottle, most of which fall in the $30 to $45 range. Brews include the usual Blue Moon, Corona, and Negra Modelo, along with craft beers such as Rastafa Rye Ale, Ayinger, Banana Bread English Strong Ale, and Oskar Blues Dale Pale Ale. Add to that live jams by groups such as Afrobeta and Ala Rosa, and you've got the makings of a trusty neighborhood hangout.
