Provisions comes from the P. Franco school of wine shops and bars. Meaning, you’ll lean, stand, or perch, on the big central table, drinking funky wines and having a chat (or listening in to the juicy chat across the table). This Holloway Road spot often has a lot of things on the go, both bottles and cheese-wise, and the staff are as unpretentious as they are knowledgeable, so it’s a great place to try a few new things, be it day or night.
