New WineBar in Long Branch?

I saw a sign for a new wine bar in Pier Village (The Wine Loft, I think?) Anyone have any information on this place?

      Comprehensive, unless you want to see a menu or a listing of upcoming events.

        Looks interesting. Where in the PV will this be located and to we have an ETA?

    2. went on an internet hunt and found this to be part of a chain ... not that there's anything wrong with that ...

      1. Ok, checked the website--looks like they are hoping to open Dec 08. It is located on the north side of Pier Village, a few doors down from Gold's Gym, facing the Ocean Place hotel. Looks promising (although I like almost any place that promises a cheese plate and a glass of wine)

          Interesting place to put the wine bar as its off the "main drag"/restaurant row. BTW, they got my vote as I like the concept and anything has to be better than the current slate of restaurants at PV.

        2. we passed the wine bar today, and it was open although very dimly lit. does anyone have a review on this place?

          1. I'll be visiting on a Tuesday or Wednesday soon, for those half-price bottle offers. Fantastic offer.

              Tell me more about half price bottle offer please.

                1. re: aacharya

                  Aacharya and I went there last night. We got a couple bottles of wine and split the mushroom bruscetta and meat and cheese platter.

                  I wasn't too impressed with either plate. The bruschetta was so-so, and the cheese and meat plate was basically just three meats and cheeses thrown on a plate with some cornichons, garlic, and spicy nuts alongside them.

                  With half price wine the place is worth a visit but I wouldn't go back for the food. :)
