Have you ever just wanted to grab a drink somewhere with a friend or colleague and not have to worry about dealing with crowds, finding a table, or wondering if you’ll even be able to hear each other talk?
Well, if you’re like me, this is something I encounter a lot of the time, but thankfully Birmingham has an amazing spot with an amazing drink selection, delicious food, and an awesome atmosphere.
I’m talking about the The Wine Loft.
Now, I’ll be 100% honest, since I’m not a huge wine drinker I had actually never visited The Wine Loft until a friend asked me to meet them there about a year ago, but to my surprise The Wine Loft not only has an incredible selection of wines, but they have a huge selection of craft beers as well (not to mention some pretty amazing cocktails too). When we were there we tried the food as well which was delicious.
Probably my favorite thing about Wine Loft though is the atmosphere.
The Wine Loft has this sophisticated, yet casual, lounge-like atmosphere. The walls are lined with super comfortable leather couches and coffee tables which makes you feel like you’re drinking and talking with your friends in your own living room (albeit, a much nicer living room). The layout is very spread out which is amazing because I can have a conversation with the person I’m with and actually listen to what they’re saying.
It’s a nice a break from the loud, crowded, “can barely find a table” experience you get at many of the bars or breweries around town.
Since my friend introduced me to Wine Loft, it’s been my go-to place for drinks after work with a colleague, catching up with an old friend, and even first dates.
If you haven’t checked out Wine Loft, you totally should. You’ll be glad you did.
