Temperance Wine Bar review image

Temperance Wine Bar


40 Carmine St, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Temperance in the West Village offers over 100 wines by the glass, which means you can drink a range of things like a nutty-savory French white or order a bottle of something that tastes as though a can of kombucha dressed up to go out on a Saturday night. Between the big, hidden backyard and helpful staff, consider Temperance the most useful new bar for a wine-fueled date night in the area. It also works when you want to hang out with a couple friends outside in the West Village without having to navigate the masses perched on sidewalk cafes. Glasses start at $12 and go as high as $50-ish for something like a Champagne brut rosé.
