With spring and warmer days quickly approaching, it time we come out of hibernation, get out, and take advantage all the Bergen County has to offer. And what better way to enjoy the area than to eat, drink, and be merry. Luckily, one new Norwood spot which just opened its doors on March 14th is ready to serve up all three.
86 & Vine, from the team that brought us De Novo European Pub in Edgewater, is flipping the script on we enjoy an adult night out with food and spirits. The massive, 3,500 square foot space combines an extensive liquor store (that houses hard-to-find picks) with a unique space to hang out with friends and sample wine (after all, if you can't travel to wine country for a tasting, let the tasting come to you). Sip from as many as 50 wines in 2- , 4- , or 6-ounce pours by way of rechargeable cards that give you an all-access pass to their three Cruvinet dispensing systems.
Wine is only the beginning, though. Find other cocktail options from their more than 300 spirits, plus a highly curated beer selection of up to 30 flavors. But don't worry, there are plenty of global small bites to whet your appetite, too. Think: charcuterie boards, tuna carpaccio, foie gras truffle paté, Swiss truffles, and, wait for it, a chocolate flight.
Food and drinks can be consumed in 86 & Vine's casual, hip, and romantic lounge with a full bar, where cushioned seating abounds to big and small groups. Expect a warm and cozy feel that includes a mix of textures and surfaces. The lively vibe is seen in the decor, too, which includes bold colors and a wine-inspired barrel vaulted ceiling, a live-moss wall with backlit onyx slab, and plenty of windows letting in natural light. 86 & Vine operates on a first-come, first-served philosophy, so head there early with your crew to get a good spot.
While you're there, check out their cocktail baskets, home bartending, and other on-theme gifts. Book your sitter, call up your favorite crew, and head to 86 & Vine in Norwood, which is ready to welcome Bergen County and beyond through their doors.86 & Vine 519 Livingston St., Norwood 201-272-6767
