Cheap Wine Bar?

We just moved here from Brooklyn and we miss wine bars with $5 glasses. There's gotta be someplace in LA that's not $9 or $10 a glass. We'd love to find a place with inexpensive tapas too. We live on the Eastside but suggestions from all over are welcome!

  1. the closest thing i can think of is barbrix on hyperion. not quite $5/glass, but they have a few $6-$7/glass wines and i've usually been pretty impressed with their selection. they also have a pretty reasonably priced small plates menu.

    1. What about the San Antonio Winery? They have not just their wines but a world-wide selection.

      737 Lamar St, Los Angeles, CA

      San Antonio Cafe
      1110 E 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90021

      1. PS - and we've missed it now but the best wine tasting is at the LA County Fair. You may want to bring your own glass.

        1. The Must in downtown has a good selection of affordable wines by the glass, with a few in the $5-6 range

            yes, the must is a good one. parking will prolly be an issue though.

          2. Lou Wine Bar in Hollywood has Tuesday night flights for $14. And Silverlake Wine does a few different tastings a week for even less than that.

            Salute in Santa Monica has a daily happy hour from 5:30-7:30.
