From time to time Brian and I enjoy going out for a date night or I need a moms night out! While we love to try new craft beers, we have also found some great wine bars in the area that we enjoy. If you’re looking for some good date night ideas in the area this is the post for you!
Cooper’s Hawk is one of our favorite places to do wine tasting and also has great food. They are also a chain so you may be able to find one in your area if you aren’t local to the Milwaukee, WI area. We first started going to Cooper’s Hawk with some friends for a monthly date night. It worked out great to have that one night a week where we did wine tasting together. They have a great wine club that we did, so each month we had two wine tastings (one for each of us) and then we were also able to pick two bottles of wine. Throughout the year they had other perks too that came with the membership. Once we started having kids, the wine club didn’t work out so well but someday we definitely want to start doing that again! We also enjoy going out to eat there since the food is delicious.
Wine Maniacs is a new wine bar I tried out recently with a friend for a moms night out. It did not disappoint. It is a cute place with nice outdoor seating if it’s nice out. The wine selection was great and the waiter we had was very informative and let us try a few samples to make sure we liked the wine we picked. We also had dinner there which was so good! I’ll definitely be going back to enjoy wine and food there again.
Vino Etc. is a cute little wine bar with plenty of drink choices to choose from, including craft beers! They also have a small menu of cheese plates and specialty pizzas. They have a wine club which Brian and I have talked about joining for awhile. Recently they also added in a bourbon club which of course has Brian quite intrigued. I have heard good things so we are thinking over the winter months we may have to join the wine and bourbon club to see what we think! I’ll be sure to report back on how it is. 🙂
If you’re looking for a new place for a glass of wine or a date night hopefully these have given you some ideas! Do you have a favorite wine bar?
