It’s hard to leave Weino BIB after just one glass of wine. The natural wine shop, deli, and bar in Dalston has everything you need to settle in for the evening. It champions a more sustainable approach to winemaking, so the excellent bottles sold and served are from people not corporations, and made with minimal intervention. Quality bits from the deli—tinned fish, olives, and cheeses—and simple, tasty small plates are ideal snacking fodder. And most importantly, the warm and welcoming atmosphere invites lingering and ordering another bottle. The bar can ramp up a few notches later in the evening and if it puts you in the mood to go out, you’re ideally placed to explore some of the nearby queer-owned bars and clubs like Dalston Superstore, The Glory, and Vogue Fabrics.
