Holcomb is the kind of wine bar you walk into and immediately wish it existed on your block. With a long wooden bar, leather booths, and plenty of floral wallpaper, it’s nice enough to ace a first date, but also casual enough for a weeknight wine run in sweatpants. Holcomb is run by the same people as the equally excellent Bar Covell in Los Feliz, which means you can expect a tremendous wine list, solid bar snacks, and bartenders who’ll happily let you taste-test until you find the right glass. Bonus: There’s a front patio that’s entirely dog-friendly.
