If you’re into wine, walking inside Purple is not much different from that scene in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory when our heroes enter the factory for the first time and look around in awe. But instead of a molten chocolate waterfall, there’s a spiral staircase wrapped around a floor-to-ceiling bookcase full of bottles. It’s the most famous place of its kind in the city, and while there’s a chance you’ll get matched with the occasional unhelpful bartender, it lives up to the hype when it comes to your sheer number of options. You want something from Austria? You got it. A flight of obscure reds that’s literally titled, “You’ve Probably Never Had One Of These”? It’s yours. Orange wine? Yeah, sure. Add some meats and cheeses for good measure.
