Best Wine Bars In Orlando

Orlando is blessed with so many amazing wine bars – great places to unwind after a long day with great friends or a loved one. But where can you find the best? The ones with the best views, best ambience, best prices? We’ve got you covered in our latest blog, the Best Wine Bars in Orlando.

Kicking off our blog on the best wine bars in Orlando is Swirlery Wine Bar over at 1508 E. Michigan Street. Open every night except Monday, Swirlery is a wine shop with a tasting room – and it always has something going on. Whether it’s Blind Tasting Tuesdays (where you have to figure out the identity of three white wines and three red wines), or Wednesday’s Movie Night (with wine and popcorn!), or Thursday’s Somm Sessions (where you get to experience wines you might not be familiar with), you’ll find something more than just your average wine bar.

Next up on our blog on the best wine bars in Orlando is the Imperial Wine Bar and Beer Garden over at 1800 N. Orange Ave. Open seven nights a week, the Imperial doubles as a furniture store by day then transforms into the coolest wine bar around at night – you can find it at the back of Washburn Imports. Missing food? No worries – there’s always a food truck outside.  And you can even bring your dog along! What beats a glass of wine with your furry bestie? Nothing! That’s what! Remember to buy your drinks at the bar (there’s no table service) then cozy up to one of their amazing pieces of furniture. You can also hit the hidden patio in the very back.

Rounding out our blog on the best wine bars in Orlando is the Uptown Park Wine Bar over at 1784 Jake Street, which is open every day except Sundays. The atmosphere here is always hopping, the staff is very friendly and the food is pretty good too! Their wine menu is very impressive too (they also do craft beers) and we were spoiled for choice. As for ambience, they do up a very nice sports bar theme with a couple of TVs above the bar and another on the back wall – so nothing too distracting if you’re not going to watch a game. But you’ll love it!

And there you go – some of the best gosh darn wine bars in Orlando! Have fun out there, wherever you choose to go, and please remember to drink responsibly and do NOT drive drunk!
