Tired of all your old haunts? Whether you're looking for a locally brewed beer, a glass of bubbly or a reasonably priced bottle of riesling, here are three places to check out.
Bar & Garden
3314 Ross Ave.
At this new Ross Avenue retailer, you'll find additive-free liquor and natural wines that are free of powdered tannins, stabilizers, acid controllers and other additives. The prices are surprisingly reasonable, there are frequent tastings and the shop is right next to Burgundy's Local, a local, grass-fed, rancher-run meat market.
Pegasus City Brewery
2222 Vantage St.
The latest addition to the DFW beer scene brings yet another fun brewery and taproom to the Design District. Pegasus City Brewery boasts art deco design touches, an open-air porch near the taproom and beers like the Sixth Floor porter and Highpoint, a lighter "porch ale."
246 W. Davis St.
What used to be Wine Poste in Bishop Arts is now Neighborhood Cellar, a wine bar with welcoming vibes and refreshingly low prices. “Whether you want to spend $10 a bottle, $5 a glass, or whether you want to put something in your cellar for a few years, we can help with that,” says co-owner Nick Mulenos.
