Wine Flights in Manhattan?

I'm a DC Hound who will be in New York at the end of August. I'm looking for a comfortable and fun wine bar where a group of 4-6 of us can get flights of wine. Good food is a plus, but not my primary concern as we will likely go out for drinks after dinner. We're staying at The Dylan by Grand Central, but we're willing to travel. I've seen some posts about Divine Bar, Wined Up, Metro Cafe & Wine Bar. Are these good choices or are there others you would recommend? Thanks for your help!

  1. I haven't been to the ones you've mentioned. But I can recommend Vintage NY. (They have two locations: SoHo, with good food/small plates selections, and the UWS, very friendly atmosphere but limited food.)

    1. Divine bar is pretty good. I live right near there. Another option just a few doors down the street is Le Bateau Ivre... which is more of a french bistro and wine bar. They have tastings/flights too.

      1. I would also say Divine bar is a good choice. Personally, I'm not a fan of Metro Cafe & Wine bar. It's more a restaurant than a wine bar and the food is nothing to write home about. I haven't eaten at Divine Bar, but it's a good wine bar atmosphere.

        1. I'm not sure if they have wine flights, but they have great wines by the glass. Noble food & wine on Spring between Elizabeth and Bowery. Gramercy Tavern doesnt have flights but they do pour tastes with a fantastic selection.

          1. Divine Bar probably has one of the bigger selections of flights around, but the atmosphere at Wined Up is a lot nicer. Vino Vino in Tribeca is another good option.
