While some wine bars feel stuffy and intimidating, you can go to Uvae in Andersonville without fear of a pop quiz on spumante at the end of the night. At its busiest, it has the atmosphere of a friendly neighborhood supper club with a long wine list, good food, and a knowledgeable staff. They can help you find the ideal pairing for anything on the menu, which has dishes like buttery short rib wellington, creamy wild mushroom maltagliati, and spiced carrots on top of a chickpea-sauerkraut puree. They also offer a Happy Hour seven days a week with $2 oysters and $5 prosecco—but don’t ask us if it’s spumante since we left our cheat sheets at home.
