If you want to try something different from the usual Uptown happy hour scene, check out The Wine Shop at Foxcroft down in South Park. The store not only sells wines by the bottle at wholesale prices, but they serve a multitude of wines by the glass, along with cheese, small plates, and desserts.
The Wine Shop is relaxing and comfortable with soft brown chairs around high-top tables and a little bar area serving up wines on tap. When I stopped by on a Wednesday after work, it was relatively quiet, so it was easy to carry on a conversation, which was nice. Service was attentive without being overbearing and the staff knew a lot about the wines. For $18, you can pick a sampling of three cheeses to enjoy with your wine check out these photos:
