Wine or tequila bar that's not too noisy

For my sister's birthday, I'd like to take her to a wine or tequila bar that's not too noisy on a Saturday night. It would be great to find a place that has a good selection where you can try a lot of different drinks - for example, I noticed one tequila bar that will give you one-half ounce for $5. My sister and I wouldn't really enjoy loud, blaring music, or an overly-noisy crowd, and we don't mind coming in the early evening to avoid this.

Ideally, it would be great to find a place near Glendale, Silverlake or downtown LA - we can go to the west side if we have to, but would prefer not. And I don't mind some place relatively expensive if the quality is good - i'll be able to splurge on this celebration.

thanks in advance for your recs.

  1. If Pasadena is not too far, I would recommend Vertical Wine Bistro. Nice upscalish feel and peaceful inside
