Esters Wine Shop & Bar review image

Esters Wine Shop & Bar

$$$$(310) 899-6900
Hours:SUN
11AM-11PM

Don’t mistake Esters as a holding pen for people waiting to get sat next door at Cassia - this is a fun, laid-back wine bar with a great front patio to boot. The wine list covers a lot of ground, but they’ll happily direct you towards something you’ll want to drink. It’s also a wine store, so if one of the bottles on the wall strikes your fancy, you can grab it, and pay the retail price plus a corkage add-on (which still ends up being a good value for a wine bar). The food is mostly snacks that go with wine - charcuterie, cheese, sugar-y lavender almonds that are much tastier than they sound - but there’s enough stuff to make this a casual dinner spot too.
