If Veritas Wine Room's rustic, old-world décor and dimly lit, relaxed atmosphere make the wine bar and retail shop feel more like a pub than a wine room, it's by design. Planned as a "VinoPub," Veritas was opened in the summer of 2008 on Henderson Avenue. Boasting a revolving list of 350 labels of wine, the shop's sommeliers keep a well-varied selection of 20-plus wines available by the glass. The food menu offers an array of Texas meats, cheeses and chocolates, as well as some selected imported foods. Wines aside, the casual-to-dressy neighborhood haunt is known for its heaping cheese boards and craft beers. A local gallery
provides colorful artwork that lines the walls, and seating inside ranges from cozy pub tables to large communal tables to comfy armchairs.
